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

4 Star Rating Came here to see Glass Animals. It was my first time and I was not disappointed! Very friendly staff, merchandise and bar in the basement. The hall itself was also grand, great acoustics and spacious. While the seats were slightly unusual, did not take away from the overall experience. Had a great time here!

4 Star Rating Great music venue, with a dynamic set of artists playing here quite often. Only complaint would be that the seat on the upper half of the theatre are very narrow and very tight quarters. Although they do warn you of this when purchasing your tickets, it can still be uncomfortable if you're sitting in them for 2+ hours.

5 Star Rating I love Massey Hall so much! Saw the National here a few years back; acoustics were good, even the top balcony seats had a decent view of the stage. And the building is just so beautiful.

5 Star Rating Great venue. Seats are a little cozy and if you have long legs it's a pain when people are trying to go in and out of a row. The sound is amazing it's no wonder they even sell seats with an obstructed view. Seeing any performance here gives the feeling of being intimately right there with the artist.

4 Star Rating Not enough leg room. And I'm only 5'9. And the accoustics to the sides of the stage aren't always great. Other than that, great venue. Been here 5 or 6 times.
