Shania Twain and Bastian Baker

Shania Twain Casts a Pop-Country Spell on Bridgestone Arena

"...Opening act Bastian Baker of Switzerland brought the coffee shop to the arena, with upbeat pop rock of the rom-com trailer variety. He had a confident stage presence and pleasant voice — attributes you might expect from a former coach on the Belgian version of The Voice — and he sounded best when he approached folk-adjacent melodies. He had a capo in his pocket, covered “Hallelujah” in the style of Jeff Buckley, and gave a special shout-out to fellow Swiss national and Nashville Predators captain Roman Josi, even donning a Josi jersey."
