 Randolph College To Launch...Are You Ready? The Bill King Centre

By FYI Staff

The Randolph College for the Performing Arts (RCPA) will inaugurate its second location for post-secondary education this spring and it will be named in honour of legendary pianist, composer and music scribe Bill King.


The Bill King Centre will be located within the Daniels Corp. Artworks Condominium in the heart of Toronto’s Regent Park district.

The Regent Park district is an “important cultural destination as well as an ‘arts district' from which the next generation of great artists and performers will emerge, said Mitchell Cohen, President and CEO of The Daniels Corporation, which is to house the new 10,000 square foot cultural centre that will host studios, an event space, lounge and library.

Live Nation Antitrust Lawsuit Expected to Be Filed by DOJ on Thursday

The lawsuit is expected to charge that the concert giant has a monopoly on event ticketing through Ticketmaster.

A Department of Justice lawsuit against Live Nation for violating U.S. antitrust laws is imminent and could be filed as soon as Thursday (May 23), a source with knowledge of the DOJ’s plans tells Billboard.

The lawsuit is rumored to charge that Live Nation has a monopoly on event ticketing through Ticketmaster and that it illegally uses its monopoly power to grow its business and stifle competition. The DOJ has been investigating Live Nation for more than two years. With that investigation now wrapped, company president Joe Berchtold recently said he was hopeful his company would avoid a legal showdown with the DOJ’s top antitrust lawyer, Jonathan Kanter.
