Shania Twain's horseback arrival for her Las Vegas gig was a dramatic way for the country star to make her triumphant entrance to the Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Nov. 14, 2012. The Las Vegas Strip was closed for the first-ever orchestrated horse stampede that heralded Twain's arrival at the venue. Twain's show titled "Shania: Still the One" opens Dec. 1, 2012 at the Colosseum Colosseum Colosseum.

The 47-year-old singer didn't just ride a single horse down the strip. Instead, she sat atop a horse among a herd of 40 other horses in a slow, organized "stampede." Of course, a real stampede is neither slow nor organized, but promoters used the term to generate excitement for Shania Twain's horseback arrival.

Nine animal wranglers escorted Shania Twain and her slow-moving stampede of horses to the Caesars fountains where hundreds of people were waiting to greet her. Dozens of additional people watched the star from the of the Flamingo resort across Las Vegas Boulevard.

The Denver Post reported that Shania Twain on horseback in Vegas was reminiscent of Frank Sinatra's 1955 arrival at the old Dunes hotel in September 1955 on a camel. That sounds awesome.
