Let’s go, girls! Shania Twain is headlining the Rogers Festival at the Final Concert Series in Edmonton in honor of the Stanley Cup Final this week alongside Canadian rock band Our Lady Peace.

As announced Monday (June 10), the two free concerts presented by Rogers in partnership with the NHL will begin with Our Lady Peace performing before Game 3 on Thursday (June 13). The “You’re Still the One” singer will take the stage before Game 4 on Saturday (June 15).


Both performances will begin at 4 p.m. MT in Scotiabank Fan Park outside Rogers Place before the 6 p.m. MT games, no tickets required. They’ll serve to hype up hockey fans as the Florida Panthers and Edmonton Oilers go head to head for the best-of-seven in pursuit of the Stanley Cup.

The news comes just hours ahead of Game 2, which will kick off at 8 p.m. ET. The first game — which was attended by Ariana Grande and Ethan Slater — took place Saturday (June 8) in Florida and ended with the Panthers triumphing 3-0 against the Oilers.

Before Game 1, The Kid LAROI performed as part of a similar concert series presented by BODYARMOR. DJ Khaled is set to deliver a musical showcase as part of the same series prior to Game 2.

Twain is fresh off the release of a new single with a surprising new collaborator, Yung Gravy. Titled “White Claw,” the track dropped Friday (June 7). In August, she’ll return to the Bakkt Theater in Las Vegas for a second round of her Come On Over Residency in Sin City.

Our Lady Peace hasn’t released an album since 2022’s Spiritual Machines II. According to a release, however, the “Superman’s Dead” quartet is set to release new music at some point this year.

Allison Russell Named Billboard Canada Women In Music Breakthrough Artist of the Year

The Nashville-based musician from Montreal has been having a huge year, including her first Grammy and her first Hot 100 appearance. Accepting the award on June 19 at the iHeartRadio Canada studio, she talked about her LGBTQ+ advocacy work and the importance of playing with underrepresented musicians.

It was a special Juneteenth for Allison Russell.

Not only did she serve as the special Toronto opener for Sarah McLachlan on the Canadian icon’s Fumbling Towards Ecstasy 30th anniversary tour, but she earned another big honour: Billboard Canada Women In Music Breakthrough Artist of the Year.
