Bazzi opened with “Soarin'” and the night had officially begun.

On August 7th, 2018, Bazzi (Full name: Andrew Bazzi) played his first of two back-to-back sold out hometown shows in Detroit at St. Andrew’s Hall. The show started at around 8:30 when the Dearborn, Michigan-native walked out on stage to a full floor of screaming people. Bazzi opened with “Soarin'” and the night had officially begun.

He rolled through the first half of his set without fault. The sound was fantastic, and his voice carried through the room effortlessly. About halfway through the set, he disappeared off stage for around 30 seconds before magically reappearing on a smaller stage on the opposite side of the room, directly in front of the soundboard.
Bazzi played a few slower songs on his piano to break up the middle-half of his set. It was well-timed, and it seemed like every single person in the room was singing the words.
He eventually returned to the main stage, this time sporting a Detroit Tigers jersey with “Bazzi” printed on the back. He made sure to genuinely thank his hometown fans for showing up, and repeatedly voiced how grateful he was. He finished out his set with “Changed,” “Somebody,” and “3:14” and then issued a quick “Thanks, Detroit. I’ll see you next time,” before walking off stage. Everyone immediately started the encore chant, and it wasn’t long before he was back out on stage to officially end the night with his major 2017 hit, “Mine.”
