Comic concert review: Shania Twain delivers big kitsch on a big budget

The country-pop superstar's return to Toronto gets illustrated in all its glitzy, folksy glory


SHANIA TWAIN at Scotiabank Arena, Friday, July 6. Rating: NNN


Shania Twain has said farewell before, but the Canadian country-pop superstar was back in Toronto at Scotiabank Arena for a pair of concerts on July 6 and 7 as part of her Now Tour. Naturally, we had to be there. And there was only one person who could capture the strange mix of Vegas glitz and folksy charm in all its kitschy, corny glory: NOW’s comic concert reviewer Eric Kostiuk Williams
