Billy Joel's first appearance in Quebec City was greatly appreciated by the crowds and the media photographers at the Festival d'Été on Friday evening.

QCT photographer Jay Ouellet says, "Incredible! This was the first time in my 10 years [covering the FEQ] that photographers were allowed up on the stage ... off to the side about 50 feet away. Our legs and hands were shaking with the thumping bass. With our long lenses, it was actually quite tough getting a steady shot."
