Bryan Adams pumped out the hits to the tens of thousands amassed at the historic Plains of Abraham site on Sunday, July 13 at Quebec City Summer Festival. The multi-Juno and Grammy winning Canuck rocker sizzled through a 24-song setlist as headliner on FEQ's closing night. Fans who missed the action can check out a newly posted live footage.
Festival d’été de Québec has posted a video clip on July 14 at their official YouTube page of the multi-Platinum selling singer-songwriter performing his opening number, the 1984 rock anthem “Run to You.” The 1: 59 minute video captures the raspy-voiced Kingston, Ont. native jamming out the pop classic, which Adams merged with another of his six Reckless hit singles, "Somebody."
The 56-year-old Kingston native, who's touring in support of his upcoming studio album "Tracks of My Tears," dazzled the crowd with a dizzying array of non-stop hits and beloved album tracks from his massive back catalogue. Adams' set feature plenty of rockers like "Summer of 69" and "Kids Wanna Rock," as well as power ballads, including his 1992 Grammy-winning ballad, Everything I Do (I Do It for You).
Multi-platinum selling alt-rockers Third Eye Blind opened the night along with pop-rocker Andee. Video footage of Third Eye Blind performing their 1997 single "Narcolepsy" is also available at FEQ's official YouTube page.
FEQ kicked off its 11-day run on July 3 and has been featuring a diverse set of mega headliners like Lady Gaga, Journey, Snoop Dog, Deadmau5, The Killers, The Queens of the Stone Age and Billy Joel.
