It"s great she wants to promote it outside the US.

Shania just called into the morning show on BBC Radio 2 and said she'll sing a couple new songs but will stick primarily to the hits. Then she mentioned something about a pub, Paul McCartney, Come On Over being 20, and her son Eja being 15.

Well it makes sense... if the album isn't released yet or if it has just being released nobody will know the new songs by September.
Maybe she'll do another couple of festivals in 2018... she clearly doesn't want to stop performing live even if maybe not with an actual Tour.

Apparently Take That will be the headlining act.

Shania Twain to play UK after 13-year gap

By Mark Savage - BBC Music reporter | BBC News | June 7, 2017

Country star Shania Twain will play live in the UK for the first time in 13 years at BBC Radio 2's "festival in a day" in Hyde Park.

The singer, whose hits include You're Still the One and That Don't Impress Me Much, will be a special guest at the event on 10 September.

"I can't wait," she told breakfast show host Chris Evans. "It's been a long time. I'm so excited about it."

Take That top the bill, with Blondie and Rick Astley also playing.

Tickets go on sale this Thursday, 8 June. Full details of how to apply are on the Radio 2 website.

Shania Twain's appearance will be her only UK concert date of 2017, and marks the 20th anniversary of her breakthrough album, Come on Over.

"I'll play a couple of new songs but I will definitely stick primarily to the hits," she said, adding that she wouldn't "wear my top hat" - a reference to her costume in the video for Man! I Feel Like A Woman.

https://ichef-1.bbci.co.uk/news/624/cpsprodpb/B97F/production/_96378474_238d9338-7f82-432d-995c-c908b1fad084.jpg
Shania Twain previously played a special show for BBC Radio 2 in 2003

The star spent several years out of the limelight after losing her voice to dysphonia, a condition often associated with psychological trauma.

Her illness followed her divorce from record producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange after he allegedly had an affair with her best friend. However, Twain subsequently attributed the condition to contracting Lyme disease.

Either way, she was unable to sing for several years, requiring extensive physical therapy before she returned to the stage for a Las Vegas residency in 2012.

She is due to release a new album, her first since 2002's Up!, later this year.

Take That headline the festival for a second time, having previously stepped in to replace Lionel Richie, who fell ill days before the event in 2011.

"Do you remember in 2011, when you called me?" frontman Gary Barlow asked Chris Evans, as he recalled the show.

"I think I was at New York Airport and you said, 'Our headliner's let us down, can you come and do it?'

"So I know what this festival's like, brilliant crowds, brilliant atmosphere. So when we were asked by Radio 2, what do you think we were going to say? Yes is the answer, and we cannot wait to be there."

'Huge celebration'

Other acts on the bill include Stereophonics, Seth Lakeman, Emeli Sande and newcomers Wildwood Kin.

Blondie's Debbie Harry said she was looking forward to "bringing everyone together for a huge celebration".

And James Blunt, speaking to Radio 2 "in my dressing gown" from Ibiza, looked forward to playing the Radio 2 festival again, after saying he had the time of his life in previous years.

Last year's event was headlined by Elton John, and included an affectionate tribute to Radio 2 stalwart Sir Terry Wogan.

The festival, established in 2011, is partnered with Radio 3's Proms In The Park, which takes place the preceding day.

That event will be headlined by The Kinks' frontman Ray Davies, with further performances from Bryn Terfel, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Steps and the cast of Five Guys Named Moe.

The evening culminates in a live screening of the Last Night of the Proms, direct from London's Royal Albert Hall.

Let's hope she'll do something else in 2018.

Has anyone been able to find a schedule for this event? I'm trying to figure out what time she's performing so I know whether she is early in the day, later in the evening, etc.

It looks like she'll be performing in the evening. Her Facebook page says 7:00pm. I'm not sure how official that is but since Shania is one of the headlining acts it seems about right. The bigger acts play in the evening/night. https://www.facebook.com/events/1922825531308002/

I didn't even think to check her facebook event! Thank you. It looks as if she's ending the concert. Excellent, and it looks like she'll be performing for two and a half hours if that is accurate! I was worried she was only going to be on for maybe an hour with such a huge line up. Thank you!

Take That is officially listed as the headlining act so they'll probably perform last. Shania is listed as a "special guest". There's no way she'll be performing for 2 1/2 hours. Her tour concerts aren't even that long.

If she plays 7:00 she is the act before Take That. Which means about an 1 hour gig if you look at how they programmed the event the last couple years.

Shania just said on BBC One's "The One Show" that she's gonna perform for about 30 minutes. She will sing her current single (LATGG) and the next one (SWMEC). The rest of the setlist will be the hits.

Besides the new songs my bet is on

- You're still the one
- Man! i feel like a woman
- That don't impress me much
- I'm gonna getcha good
- Don't be stupid

It would be nice to hear her sing forever and for always once again, which was a bit hit in uk. But think she will never sing that one again.

Given i think Hyde Park starts at 1pm until 9pm, i'm surprised it's only 30mins! Why come to the UK and play for 30mins but not tour :( Hope she adds UK tour dates at some point next year or 2019.

The festival will be video-streamed live on BBC Radio 2's website. But it will probably only be available in the UK.

6 reasons why Shania Twain is the REAL Queen of Pop

BBC | September 5, 2017

The 2017 line up for Radio 2 Live In Hyde Park is looking like the biggest and best yet, with the likes of Take That, Blondie, The Stereophonics, Rick Astley and James Blunt all on the bill for the "festival in a day" bonanza on Sunday 10th September.

And just when you thought it couldn't get any better, there's the promise of a rare UK appearance from the country queen, living legend and all round pop powerhouse that is Shania Twain. It got us thinking about all the ways in which Shania rocks our world...and everyone else's.

1. She knows how to keep things majorly exclusive

The mighty Shania knows how to make a date count - her special appearance at Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park will not only be her ONLY UK performance in 2017, but it will also be her only UK show for 13 years. 13 years!

“I can’t wait," she told the BBC. "It’s been a long time. I’m really excited about it. I’ll play a couple of new songs but I’ll stick primarily to the hits.”

Don't worry if you haven't got tickets for the festival itself, because the whole thing will be streamed online via the Radio 2 website, then available to watch again.

Just prepare to be blown away by the comeback queen herself, Shania Twain 2.0

2. Her new album is going to be AMAZING

Shania is due to release her first album for a staggering 15 years, the aptly and snappily named Now, at the end of September. That means we won't have had the chance to hear the record in full before our country pop empress hits the Hyde Park stage, so we're hoping there might just be a few sneak previews in store.

We're already loving her perky, victorious single Life's About To Get Good, and we can't wait to sing along gustily to every word.

3. She's the ultimate survivor

Our leopard print loving heroine is an inspiring example of true triumph over adversity.

After the release of her last LP, 2002's astronomically successful Up!, Shania found out that she was suffering from a vocal cord disorder called dysphonia, which causes hoarseness and trouble speaking. Her condition is thought to have been triggered by Lyme disease, an infection caused by a bacteria spread through ticks. But was Shania going to let this ruin her career? No! She went through extensive therapy to get her voice back to its glorious best.

4. It's the 20th anniversary of her iconic album Come On Over

2017 marks the 20th anniversary of Shania's album Come On Over, and it's a handy opportunity to remind ourselves just how insanely amazing that record both was and is.

The uptempo country pop album not only gave us massive, evergreen hits - in the form of tracks such as Man! I Feel Like A Woman and That Don't Impress Me Much - but it smashed pretty much every record going. Come On Over became the biggest-selling studio album of ALL TIME by a female artist, the biggest-selling country music album ever, and one of the biggest-selling albums in history full stop. To date, it has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. Worth raising a glass for, we'd say.

5. She's an inspiration to other artists

Shania has been an inspiration to everyone from Meghan Trainor to Britney Spears (for whom she wrote Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know.) By showing how massively popular country pop crossover hits could be, she was doing the Taylor Swift thing before Taylor Swift even arrived.

"Shania showed the entire music industry that there were new options for where you could take your career in country music, how widely you could expand it," Taylor told Billboard. "She was tough and she was sensitive. She was elegant, edgy and bold. Shania became everyone’s favorite woman because she represented how versatile a woman can be."

LA sister trio Haim have expressed their love for Shania by covering some of her biggest hits, including a lush, chilled version of That Don't Impress Me Much for Australian radio station Triple J that pretty much set the internet alight. ""We absolutely love Shania Twain. We've always loved her and worship her," told the radio host. "She's just the best."

6. She's just generally a VERY big deal

She ranks with the likes of Adele, Whitney Houston or Celine Dion, and Shania might just pip them to be the most successful female music artist of all time.

She’s a five time Grammy winner and has sold more than 90 million albums. Our girl is the best-selling female artist in country music history and the ONLY female artist to ever have three consecutive albums certified as Diamond sellers. We reckon she can rest her cowboy boots pretty comfortably on that rhinestone encrusted throne...

As I suspected, I've got bad news. According to the BBC Radio 2 website: "If you're outside the UK you won't be able to watch our live stream or the full sets from Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park."

But apparently we can listen to the festival on BBC Radio 2:
Listen to Radio 2 - Kicking things off with The Michael Ball Show at 11:00 on Sunday, Radio 2 will bring you every single performance, very special guests, and backstage shenanigans from the festival. You can hear more highlights from the event on-air in the upcoming weeks.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/music/articles/5f8b7910-3d01-4b78-89b4-8a014084977b

***Shania will be performing at 7:00pm London time (2:00pm ET).

All in all, not a bad performance... the audio was messed up during "That Don't Impress Me Much", she kept on miming something to the audio techs. Her voice got stronger and stronger as songs went by.
But there is definitely some playback here and there (the bridge and chorus of IGGG, YSTO, the verses of SWMEC and the chorus of MIFLAW).

Anyway, I liked her set.
