LAS VEGAS, June 9 (UPI) -- Country music star Shania Twain has signed up for a two-year residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, AEG Live said Thursday.

"Shania: Still the One" is to open Dec. 1, 2012.

"This past year has been such an amazing journey and to find myself poised to play at The Colosseum is truly magical," Twain said in a statement. "The Colosseum is an iconic location with unmatched energy, and I'm excited to bring a pop/country spin to the city. People from all over the world travel to Las Vegas and I'm so thrilled to be able to share my music with a truly global audience."

Twain recently was presented with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She also published her first memoir entitled "From This Moment On" and is starring in the OWN docu-series "Why Not? With Shania Twain."

"We work hard living up to the mission of making The Colosseum the home to the greatest entertainers in the world, and with the addition of Shania Twain, we have exceeded our goal," said John Meglen, president and co-chief executive officer of AEG Live/Concerts West. "The Colosseum proudly continues its rich tradition of shining the spotlight on world-class stars."
