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 5Massey Hall Star Rating

5 Star Rating Love this place. Went to see the Joe Satriani G3 concert. This place is more then 100 years old and a gem for live music. Been here for 4 of his concerts and he never fails to impress. Great seats in the entire venue and amazing sound. Sad it’s closing ina few months for repairs for a couple of years. This is a must see place in Toronto.

5 Star Rating This is a beautiful old venue that has been restored and well maintained. The wood seats in the balcony seem original so are a bit small and not padded. There is an wonderful intimacy as all the seating seems close to the stage.

5 Star Rating Not a bad seat in the house and offers the best in entertainment. I was last there for The Women's Blues Revue 2017. Great acoustics. Offers liquor and other beverages that you can take to your seat. Massey Hall is a beautiful Toronto institution. Beautiful architecture. You can just feel the history in the walls. I love it!

4 Star Rating A very historic venue which has featured the likes of so many famous bands and musicians. Many describe the acoustic quality of this venue to be second to none. I personally do not agree and feel there are many other venues where you can have a better experience. I find the chairs very uncomfortable and there are no elevators for people with accessibility issues. While I can't deny the historical importance of this venue it will be interesting to see what changes with the renovations.

5 Star Rating A Toronto gem. So looking forward to the renovations, but so going to miss the place for the 2 years they will take. I have been enjoying the unique and amazing acoustics of Massey Hall for over 30 years now. Not a better venue in the city!
