    Québec, city of rock ? More than ever, if we look at the musical offerings of the next few days. After the passage of The Who Thursday, the rock fans can attend the concerts of Metallica, Gorillaz, and Muse, the Festival of summer. That’s not counting Iron Maiden, who will visit the Centre Videotron Sunday. What make Montreal a bit jealous.

    We knew that the music lovers of the capital were fond of rock music. They will get their money, this weekend, at the summer Festival.

    Metallica will take the plains of Abraham by assault on Friday evening, five days before to do the same at parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal.

    Tickets for the show in montreal were $ 100 to $ 180. How much is the pass for 10 days at the Festival d’été de Québec ? A “small” 105 $. And at this price, you also have the right, among others, the performances from Gorillaz and Muse. This is a end of the week rather interesting and affordable.

    Thousands of spectators

    The love story of the band James hetfield didn with Quebec is still intact. Several festival-goers were still fresh in memory, the show that Metallica had given the summer Festival, in 2011.

    Not less than 115 000 people were displaced for the occasion. The training in california was then submitted that, in September 2015, with concerts at the Pepsi Coliseum and in the Centre Videotron. Without surprise, it is expected that the centre of the city of Quebec was taken by the hordes of fans, Friday night.

    The FEQ before Osheaga

    Saturday evening, music lovers will probably be also very likely to want to attend the concert of the band of electro-rock-rap british, Gorillaz. The group “virtual” led by Damon Albarn, who has released the album Humanz last April, will be its first visit in Quebec city.

    It will be the only concert of Gorillaz in the province, this year. Career, the group has visited Montreal only once, in 2010.

    We can suppose that the team of Osheaga is biting the fingers have not been able to schedule them at the festival this summer. Instead, they have had to rely on the headliners Lorde, The Weeknd and Muse. Should we recall that it costs 320 $ for three days at the montreal festival ?

    Darlings of Québécois

    On Sunday, the English will take back possession of the plains of Abraham with the show of Muse. You can’t say that Matthew Bellamy and his mates are rare in Quebec. Not later than last year, the group gave four concerts (two in Montreal, two in Quebec) in the province.

    Finally, for those who prefer rock or heavy metal, even heavier, Iron Maiden will perform at the Centre Videotron Sunday, at the same time as Muse.

    The English group had also given a concert in Quebec city during the summer Festival in 2012. He will come this time to present its tour of The Book of Souls.
