Ontario Live Reopens, Vancouver Celebrates With Bryan Adams

By FYI Staff

The Ontario government has lifted capacity restrictions on a range of venues including clubs, stadiums and restaurants with the caveat that proof of vaccination is required.


According to a government news release, “Ontario will slowly and incrementally lift all remaining public health and workplace safety measures, including the provincial requirement for proof of vaccination and wearing of face coverings in indoor public settings, over the next six months. This phased approach will be guided by the ongoing assessment and monitoring of key public health and health care indicators…”

The loosening of restrictions across the country is scattershot, but clubs and larger indoor venues have been operating in a limited fashion in BC and New Brunswick. In Montreal, sports venues are open but clubs are still in lockdown.

Yes, Lana Del Rey’s Headlining Coachella Set Was Perplexing — And Profound

The iconic artist's night one headlining set included a guest appearance from Billie Eilish, a hologram of herself and so much more.

Not only did Lana Del Rey start her Coachella headlining set early, but her entry was epic.

On Friday, April 12, at 11:16 p.m. the festival main stage screens showed an aerial view of Del Rey and her entourage rapidly approaching. As she neared, it became clear her crew was not rolling up on the expected golf carts that often shuttle stars around the Indio, Calif. fest, but rather motorcycles. And as a snippet of her never-to-be-officially-released song “Jealous Girl” played – with the lyric “Baby, I’m a gangster too” on loop – Del Rey’s motorcade took a lap through the crowd as she smiled and waved to the thousands of fans gathered for this very moment.
