Country songstress Shania Twain celebrated her impending Las Vegas residency debut by parading down the Strip on horseback with more than 40 horses in tow last week.

The chart-topping performer will kick off "Shania: Still The One," her two-year residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Dec. 1.

Las Vegas police stopped traffic on the popular Strip for more than 30 minutes so Twain could make a grand entrance to her new home at The Colosseum. Hundreds of fans lined the street in front of the casino's iconic fountains to get a view of the extravagant stampede.

Twain's Las Vegas itinerary begins with 10 December shows and picks back up in March and April with a slew of spring performances. So far, 12 pairs of two-night stands make up the Vegas schedule.

Tickets for the spring performances, which range from $55 to $250 plus applicable fees, are on sale now at the event's website.

Raj Kapoor will direct the show experience with the help of lighting designer Peter Morse and production designer Michael Cotten, who worked on Michael Jackson's "History" tour and Gloria Estefan's "Live and Unwrapped" residency at Caesars Palace. Twain's costumes will be designed by Marc Bouwer, whose client list includes Beyonce, Angelina Jolie and Heidi Klum, among others.

Twain has signed on to play 60 shows per year in Vegas, though she hasn't performed a concert in seven years. In May 2011, the five-time Grammy winner released a memoir, "From This Moment On," which is climbing the New York Times' Bestsellers List, according to Twain's website.
