Twain's last Australian tour was in 1999 in support of her Come on Over album which is the highest-selling country record in history, selling over 40 million copies.

The Canadian born singer retired from touring in 2004 after a health battle that weakened her singing voice.

She returned to the stage in 2012 with a Vegas residency.

Last year Twain released her first album in 15 years, Now, which reached No. 1 in Australia.

Her hits include You're Still the One, From This Moment On, That Don't Impress Me Much, Man! I Feel Like a Woman and I'm Gonna Getcha Good.

Twain, 52, split with husband Robert 'Mutt' Lange, co-writer of all her major hits, in 2008. The pair have a son, Eja, born in 2001. Twain married Frédéric Thiébaud in 2011.
