Two stars from the popular CW show Riverdale will be in Vancouver to perform with their band this weekend. 

KJ Apa and Hart Denton will be at the Fox Cabaret on Main Street to play a show with their band Motherlover on Saturday (March 26).  

Apa, who plays Archie on Riverdale, states in a social media post that doors will open at 8 p.m. 

His brother, Hart Denton, is the other half of Motherlover; he plays Chic on the hit show.

Unfortunately, tickets have already sold out.

In November, Apa spotted his friend, Riverdale director Natalie Boltt, in a car in front of him while he was driving. She stuck her head outside of the car and gave him the thumbs up. 

Earlier this year, fans took to Twitter to share some images of the Riverdale set in Bear Creek Park, which included a football scene.

A look back on Riverdale's rocky 2020

In March 2020, Warner Bros. Television said the Vancouver-based production of teen drama was halted until further notice due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

British Columbia's film industry was given the go-ahead to restart production in June, after WorkSafeBC released new health and safety guidelines to contain the spread of COVID-19. More than 30 films and television shows stopped production across B.C. when the province imposed a lockdown due to COVID-19 in March.

Filming for the show picked up again in September 2020, but was halted due to delays in testing for the virus. 

Regular testing also wasn't the only health and safety protocol the Vancouver production used to prevent the spread of COVID-19 on set. On Sept. 23, Riverdale lead KJ Apa posted a video to Instagram of himself and co-star Camila Mendes swishing a solution around in their mouths before spitting into a plastic bag. The actor captioned the post: "our new normal is washing our mouths before every take of a make-out scene..."
