French-Canadian Ariane Moffatt can consider her solo show on the Plains of Abraham a roaring success.

For the show on Tuesday 14 July, the sky might have been overcast, a little gloomy at times, but the music emanating from the stage was far from it.

It rained. The crowd didn’t care. Moffatt was clearly enjoying the moment, performing to an appreciative audience.
She was there to warm everyone up for French megastar Patrick Bruel. She did the job to perfection.
She also told us that Bruel was warming everyone up for the Rolling Stones the following night.

We were treated to an hour of pop music – keyboards, piano, synthesizers, drums, guitars – the lot!
And Moffatt demonstrated that she could play them all. And what a voice!

Popular, and often given air time on Quebec radio stations Tous les sens was enjoyed by all.

The best moment was when she sat in front of the piano to sing and play the ballad Poussière d’ange. Just beautiful.

Singing mainly in French, she did offer a Phil Collins track (In the air tonight) and gentle nods to Madonna and Survivor (Rocky).

It worked.

The set list was as follows:

Rêve, Je veux tout, L’homme dans l’automobile, Tous les sens, Poussière d’ange, In the air tonight, Mon corps, Soleil chaleur, Réverbère, Too late, Debout, and Miami.

If you’re a music-lover then Quebec City is always the place to be in July.
