Elton Coming to Quebec


Elton John is about to become the next musical superstar to strut his stuff on the Plains of Abraham.
The 64-year-old John will appear at the Quebec City landmark July 9 as part of the city's annual summer festival.

The Rocket Man's show comes three years after Paul McCartney andCéline Dion gave separate shows on the Plains to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the founding of Quebec City.
McCartney's appearance riled some Quebec nationalists, who said a Brit shouldn't be part of the city's festivities.

The weekend of John's show promises to be a huge one for music fans in Quebec. Irish rockers U2 will be playing at the Montreal Hippodrome on both July 8 and 9.
