I went to see Robert Plant at Massey Hall. The building itself feels very cool, from the neon sign outside to the two balcony levels... it felt very historic, and I think it is. I thought that the acoustics were great, and it felt very...More

If you can go past the worn out seats and the general darkness (think old unadorned church or boxing hall) the place is full of history and with excellent acoustics. So the gray stains of smoke and dust can be esile forgotten thinking of the...More

I have seen comedians (including Robin Williams, Billy Connolly, Lewis Black, Jeremy Hotz) and bands (including INXS, Burton Cummings) play at Massey Hall and the theatre ambiance is fantastic. The seats up top are a little small but comfortable. You can really feel like you...More

We loved Diana Krall but Massey Hall was a disappointment. There were no screens and between the small uncomfortable seats and restricted view we missed seeing all the amazing musicians. Tickets are a lot of money and for us the venue let us down, it...More

Sugar Sammy, Gina Brillon and Alonzo Bodden had me in tears laughing. A beautiful venue with a good matured audience. Nothing was left untouched. Relationships, LGBT, Race, religion, nationalities and of course poking at #45. Really a great night!

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip

a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

We’re unsure if Massey Hall has a coat check/bag check. Best to contact the box office at Massey Hall and enquire.
