Journey fans and FEQ festival goers can check out live footage of the band rocking the huge crowd this past weekend at Quebec City Summer Festival. The multi-platinum selling rockers headlined Festival d’été de Québec on Sun., July 6, performing to 45,000 spectators on the Bell Stage at the historic Plains of Abraham.
Posting an update to their official Twitter page on July 7, the 1:40 minute clip shows backstage footage of the veteran San Francisco, Calif. band preparing for their headline slot at FEQ, aerial shots of the crowd and stage at the festival site, as well as live footage of Journey belting out their 1981 rock anthem "Don't Stop Believin'." The "Any Way You Want It" hitmakers performed a 20-song setlist, which covered the spectrum of the band's massive back catalogue of hits such as "Open Arms" and "Wheel in the Sky" and even included a version of the Canadian national anthem, "O Canada."
Fellow San Francisco pop rockers, The Steve Miller Band, who have been touring North America this summer on co-headline bill with Journey, warmed up the Sunday night Bell Stage crowd with a hit-filled 19-song setlist. 19-year-old blues-rock guitar prodigy Matthew Curry opened the evening with a well received set of vintage sounding originals.
