Massey Hall is a beautiful, historic 2752 seat concert hall in the heart of Toronto that is also a designated heritage building under the Ontario Heritage Act. The Hall was home to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra as well as the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir prior to the opening of the Roy Thomson Hall in 1982.

Massey Hall was built in 1894 for a cost of just over $150,000. At that time it seated up to 3500 guests, however renovations during the 1940s reduced the capacity to the current 2752. The hall has had many famous dignitaries pass through its doors over the years and it has hosted performances by many famous artists.

Massey Hall continues to be a popular venue for many concerts and shows. For additional information about Massey Hall and upcoming concerts and events see the official website link above.

Rated 4.5 out of 5

5 Star Rating Such a shame that this place is closing for renovations for two years! Helpful staff and ushers and a good venue for lots of different events- though people don't really stand and dance for concerts here, which is a downside if you love to dance. Beautiful and enormous!

3 Star Rating This visit helped to check off 2 items on our list. 'Watch a concert in Massey Hall" and "see Vance Joy". The experience was good but the seat I had included a post in front of it which obstructed the view. There seemed to be only 1 small mens and 1 small women's bathroom for the entire balcony section which made for long wait times. It was interesting to see the old theatre and experience the show. It is worth the trip but be prepared for lines... Some poor sight lines and bathroom lines.

5 Star Rating The seats are weird and spongy, probably because they appear to have been built in the age of kerosene lamps. But the venue is beautiful, the balconies all have great views, and it has a way of making an event with hundreds of people in it feel intimate. It's an amazing venue.

5 Star Rating Saw the LEGENDARY Jill Scott at Massey Hall, was my first experience and a huge milestone in my life executed ON TIME and to perfection by the team at Massey Hall. The theatre seating worked well and is the best for concerts. Will definitely go again. Great memories.

4 Star Rating Venue has great character. Seats are not greatest but I can wait for the government & private funded renovation. I be back once the upgrades happen. The concert was great...
