Despacito, that will be for another time. At least on the Plains of Abraham. After his concert was canceled due to a severe storm 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 was slated for the evening as part of FEQ Extras, much to the delight of the 800 lucky people who crammed inside.
“Technically, it is not possible to do a concert. “He will do the best he can under the circumstances,” summer festival programming director Louis Bellavance had previously warned.
Luis Fonsi appeared around 11:30, about forty minutes after Alex Sensation’s performance began.
“Bonsoir Québec,” he exclaimed, a Joe Sakic Nordics jersey on his back. Also, before going into a frenzy singing “Want to see you anyway, be near you.” The rest is La Culpa And Despacito.
“I love you Quebec,” then began Fonzi before leaving, promising to be back soon.
This hastily improvised performance partially saved the first Latin evening in FEQ history, which fell through due to unpredictable weather.
Luis Fonsi patiently waited for this first concert in his career. He had also prepared a series of songs specially designed for the plains.
It started to rain towards the end of singer Becky G’s concert as the opening act.
The rain quickly intensified and after some lightning and thunder, Summer Festival organizers ordered the site evacuated around 9:20 p.m.
FEQ’s other outdoor stages, performed by Lil Decca and Gros Mene, were also kicked out.
So Luis Fonsi suffered the same fate as Foo Fighters in 2015 and Imagine Dragons in 2019, except he didn’t have time to sing a song on the plains.
Will he be back in the upcoming FEQ? Louis Belavans did not turn down the offer.
Becky G: Fancy
Shame as the evening started well. Young Californian Becky G, the star of Spanish pop and reggaeton, delivered a stunning debut, with her songs racking up hundreds of millions of plays.
After letting her DJ warm up the crowd for about ten minutes, the 25-year-old artist pulled out all the stops when we spotted her. Fulanito. The energetic dancers, the jets of flame and smoke, the bright red costumes, the rousing rhythms, the audience immediately knew they had some chance to catch their breath.
As the singer slowed down, she dropped to the floor to perform the dance Dolores shake hands Some admirers could not contain their emotions on seeing her so closely.
Then the party resumed and Becky G was able to claim her winnings the rain And Mamie Just before the flood.
Alex Sensation: Hell’s Party
Is this the first part of Luis Fonsi or an extension of the previous day’s E-Male? One thing’s for sure, Colombian DJ Alex Sensation, who doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page yet, led a party from hell at the start of the evening.
Revamping house, Latin and rock classic hits, from LMFAO to Queen to Bad Bunny, Plains created an all-encompassing atmosphere and kept the world on their toes from start to finish. Festival goers were dancing and singing near the stage.
As a warm-up session, you can’t ask for much.
