Blue Rodeo's Big Bud Riley O'Connor Honours Lads At Amphitheatre

By FYI Staff

Under a perfect sky and a cool evening breeze last Saturday (Aug. 24), Blue Rodeo made history of a sort performing at the Budweiser Stage amphitheatre in Ontario Place, the all-Canadian band’s 20th show at the venue since it opened in 1995.


In the true tradition of keeping it homespun and real, Jim Cuddy’s son was co-billed in the Devin Cuddy Band, alongside longstanding band mate’s Sam Roberts Band.

The expansive show included a setlist of 17 Blue Rodeo treasures, opening with 5 Days in May and closing on Hasn’t Hit Me Yet. After a rousing yell from the audience, the lads returned to encore with Try, I Got Stoned and Missed It, and Lost Together.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
