I have been to Massey hall several times over the years and taken its acoustics for granted. I went there last night to attend a concert and blown away by the excellent acoustics. Even as the crowd sang along the reproduction and clarity of their...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!

If you have your favorite artist coming to Toronto at Massey Hall, don't hesitate to buy tickets. However, avoid the gallery tickets; the seats at Massey Hall are as they were one hundred years ago, ... and the gallery was the place for the low-class...More

Just visited Massey Hall for the first time for a Jill Scott concert. I think she is the type of artist who excels in smaller, somewhat intimate classic halls like Massey where typically acoustics are enhanced by the settings configuration and generally that was the...More

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
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
