Two of the biggest music stars on the planet – whose ages happen to differ by more than 60 years – are all set to go cheek-to-cheek in Vancouver.

Tony Bennet and Lady Gaga will be rolling into Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre May 25 and May 26 as part of their much talked-about Cheek to Cheek concert tour.  Tickets (from $94-$275) are on sale now via Northern Tickets.

The special performances will highlight tracks from the pair’s Billboard-topping album Cheek to Cheek, released back in September. The album features 88-year-old Bennet and 28-year-old Lady Gaga crooning away to jazz standards.  The unlikely chemistry between the two artists comes through in classic duets including title track Cheek to Cheek, But Beautiful and I Won’t Dance.  Each artist also has a solo number on the album.

The fact that Vancouver is a stop on their tour is, in itself, pretty amazing.   Continue reading:

Vancouver’s biggest fancy picnic just got bigger.

Diner en Blanc is back this Aug. 21 and this year 3,200 tickets are up for grabs.  The unique al fresco dining event sees thousands of people dressed entirely in white converge on a secret location for the mother-of-all picnics.

Past Diners en Blanc in Vancouver have proven exceedingly popular.  In 2012, a “diner” was staged at Jack Poole Plaza at the Vancouver Convention Centre, drawing 1,200 guests.  Last year, 2,600 diners in white took over the grassy park in front of Science World on False Creek.  The location for this year’s event is, of course, a secret: Attendees will only find out on the day of the dinner.
