Massey Hall is reopening this fall with more than 40 concerts planned

Jun 15 2021, 7:06 am

Toronto’s iconic Massey Hall is reopening in November, and it already has more than 40 artists lined up to celebrate a post-pandemic return to concerts.

Canadian folk star Gordon Lightfoot will kick off the reopening with three shows from November 25 to 27. After that, other big names, including Buffy Sainte-Marie, City and Colour, Broken Social Scene, Leif Vollebekk, Jann Arden, and Tanya Tagaq, will play at the venue in 2021 and 2022.

“We’ve missed live music, and we’ve missed you,” Massey Hall said in an email to members Monday.

Located next to the Eaton Centre, the 2,750-seat venue has hosted some legendary concerts over the years. It closed three years ago for renovations not related to the pandemic, and guests will be welcomed back to experience the new venue and its amenities.

“We’re looking forward to reopening those famous red doors, reuniting with friends and family, and reconnecting over those experiences we’ve been missing for so long,” it said. “The wait is almost over.”

Tickets to the post-pandemic concerts go on sale to members on Wednesday, June 16 at noon and then to the public on Monday, June 21 at noon. Here are the shows announced so far:
