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 below.

Massey Hall Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating My first visit since the renovations that took two years. It's much improved. Bar and washroom on each floor. Padded seats and the ceiling has beautiful scallops and stained glass. Best of all we thought the acoustics which were always great had improved ❗

5 Star Rating What a beautiful renovation. They kept the essence and character of the theatre but made it so much more comfortable and functional. Love the bar area downstairs with the seating around the edges. And best of all lots of women's washrooms!! Well done. Not a bad seat in the house. edit. Photos are taken from row G.

4 Star Rating We had seats in section 207 row J seats 7 and 8 for reference. What a great venue and the renovations look great. Just take into consideration when they say obstructed view means there’s going to be a beam in front of you. Great sound but could have been a-bit louder. Will be back.

4 Star Rating My husband and I visited Massey Hall to see Feist on her Multitudes Tour! The historic building is absolutely breathtaking and there’s a gallery hallway that explains the story of Massey Hall The process for admittance was quick and easy, although we also felt secure and safe inside. Tickets were relatively well priced, although drinks were incredibly expensive and the bartenders were really inaccurate with their recommendations for beer Next time, we’d probably visit a local bar beforehand or after for any drinks. Overall, the experience was really great and we’d definitely visit again!

4 Star Rating Really nice venue overall. Beware of seats listed as obstructed view as there are some small pillars that could be a bit distracting to some. Try to get seats in the main atrium and not under a balcony overhang if possible as you will have a more enjoyable experience.
