From The Montreal Gazette:

Ex-Yardbirds visit Montreal on Feb. 22.

MONTREAL – Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck will perform together at the Bell Centre on Feb. 22, 2010.

The tour is an offshoot of two shows the guitar giants played together at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan in February this year.

They don't have the balls to make such a demand. It would make the international news, and French Quebec will become the laughing stock of the world.

What they do instead is to prohibit or block English Quebec acts from performing at "French" events. The celebrations on the Plains of Abraham this September and the treatment of English acts is a case in point.
