Want to hear only hits on the Plains of Abraham? Maroon 5 got the message right. Before a happy audience that asked for nothing better, Adam Levine’s band led an intense pop party last night where dark works were prohibited on the Plains of Abraham.

Like the day before during country singer Luke Combs’ visit to the event, the Plains were packed for this rare visit to Quebec, and Maroon 5’s first at Festival d’été.
They presented us with an avalanche of successes. There were twenty songs on the show, and all of them, without exception, have been radio hits and have frequented the highest points of the charts during the two decades spanning the Californian group’s prolific career.
With so much ammunition, Maroon 5 could afford to detonate a first bomb as soon as it entered the stage, the irresistible Moves like Jagger. Guaranteed unifying effect or money back.
From then on, the blows followed each other at a frantic pace. Of This loveWe went to stereo heartsthen One more night Y animals and so on for 90 minutes. A rolling fire.
Downtime was prohibited, except for a brief acoustic segment where the Llanos, illuminated by tens of thousands of cell phones, shone with a thousand lights in a beautiful moment of communion in public coin telephone.
King of collaborations, the group had also summoned, through a pre-recorded video sequence, rappers Future and Cardi B during Cold Y girls like you.
levine on fire
Dressed in soft clothing like a guy just out of lockdown, Adam Levine had energy to spare and played his role as the leader of the crowd to perfection.
It was on fire. Better, she seemed to stumble on her life. Was this the same guy whose Super Bowl halftime performance received mixed reviews?
You should have seen him yell “yeah yeah yeah” like a savage. Cold. If they were more discreet, the other members of the group toasted brilliantly. Some guitar solos even added an unexpected rock edge to the band’s performance.
“Can we come back here every f-year?” he went so far as to ask Adam Levine, a request that only galvanized the crowd further.
He must have been serious as he repeated his request two more times during the encore, specifying that when he returns next year, he would like to have a platform in the middle of the floor to allow him to meet fans. .
“I don’t want to be on stage, I want to be in the crowd,” he said, before concluding with a Sugar festive as you like.
Emotional Alicia Moffet
He is on stage like on Instagram: an open book that shares everything he feels and what he lives.
Awaited by several loyal fans, Alicia Moffet had her emotions running high, yesterday, in the first part of Maroon 5. “It takes all my little change not to cry,” she confided.
He will have had the merit of managing his emotions well since frankly there is nothing to complain about in his performance. Vocally, he has shown that he can push the note. His sensitive interpretation of strangers was an eloquent demonstration of it.
Although her R&B and soul-influenced pop sounds good on stage, the addition of some more danceable, from open your mindIt would be one more trick in the game of this artist who we will follow closely.
Gayle: all to be loved
Texan Gayle is only 18 years old, but she already has a sense of showmanship that eludes the performers who have been rolling her bumps for decades.
Armed with her guitar and a meaty forehead, she stood before the tens of thousands of people waiting for Maroon 5 and released her muscular pop songs, which speak of teenage love problems, with amazing punk energy.
After the third piece, you’re horny, she was already out of breath. It must be said that a song earlier, she had started running from one side of the stage to the other for no apparent reason.
Nothing to hurt her cause, Gayle even had the grace to wrap herself in a Quebec flag along the way.
In the end, when he unsheathed the firebomb ABCDEFU, title that made it known via TikTok, everyone sang and danced. The Llanos had succumbed.
Dizzy: Hooray for the wine!
On Friday, Luke Combs stirred up the crowd with a few beers. Last night, singer Katie Munshaw, of the Ontario group Dizzy, responsible for kick-starting the pop night, had the same enthusiastic reaction when she gulped down the contents of a glass of red wine.
Unlike the country star, it was the only time the audience perked up during a completely monotonous performance. Strong enough to earn a Juno for Alternative Album of the Year in 2019, Dizzy’s dreamy pop as presented on the charts lacked punch.
At least there was the wine.
