Despacito, that will be for another time. At least on the plains of Abraham. After his concert was canceled due to a violent storm on Thursday evening, Luis Fonsi took shelter from the rain and went to sing at the Armory.

The Puerto Rican-born star was briefly joined on stage by DJ Alex Sensation, who entertained the 800 lucky people scheduled for the evening as part of FEQ Extras.
“Technically, the concert is not possible. He’ll do what he can under the circumstances,” warned Louise Bellavens, former director of summer festival programming.
Luis Fonsi showed up at 11:30 p.m., about forty minutes after Alex Sensation’s show started.
“Bonsoir Québec,” he exclaimed, a Joe Sakic Nordiques jersey behind him. Before going into a frenzy singing “I wanna see you anyway, I wanna be near you.” Echam La Culpa And Despacito.
“I love you Quebec”, started Fonsi before leaving, promising to be back soon.
This quickly improvised performance somewhat saved the first Latin evening in FEQ history, which had just been dropped due to an unforeseeable deluge.
Luis Fonsi is eagerly awaiting this first concert of his career. He has also prepared a line-up of songs specially designed for Maidans.
It started to rain at the end of singer Becky G’s concert.
The rains quickly intensified and after some lightning and thunder, the organization of the summer festival ordered the evacuation of the site at around 9:20 pm.
FEQ’s other outdoor stages, where Lil Tekka and Gros Mene performed, were also emptied.
So Luis Fonsi suffered the same fate as the Foo Fighters in 2015 and Imagine Dragons in 2019, when he didn’t even have time to sing a single song on the field.
Will he return for the upcoming FEQ? Louis Bellavens did not rule out the possibility.
Becky G: Pretentious
Shame on a good start to the evening. Young Californian Becky G, a star of Spanish pop and reggaeton whose songs have hundreds of millions of plays, delivers a flamboyant debut.
After letting her DJ warm up the crowd for about ten minutes, the 25-year-old artist pulled out all the stops as soon as we saw her appear on the sound. Fulanito. A troupe of energetic dancers, jets of flame and smoke, bright red costumes, rousing rhythms, the audience knows immediately that they have very little chance to catch their breath.
The only time the singer slowed down, she took to the floor to perform the ballad Dolores rough motion Some admirers cannot control their emotions when they see her so closely.
The party then resumed and Becky G was able to claim her winnings shower And Mami Just before the flood.
Alex Sensation: Hell Party
Was it Luis Fonsi’s first episode or an extension of the previous electro evening? One thing’s for sure, Colombian DJ Alex Sensation, who doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page yet, ran a party from hell early in the evening.
Alternating house, Latin and rock classic hits from LMFAO to Bad Bunny to Queen, he kept his world on alert from the beginning to the end of his performance, creating an all-encompassing atmosphere on the field. The festival goers had a great time dancing and singing near the stage.
As a warm-up session, you can’t ask for more.
