Massey Hall, Toronto Reviews

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • The venue is lovely and the sound is great. Needs a serious upgrade re seating. The top rows in this beautiful historic building are extremely cramped and uncomfortable. Buy floor or 1st balcony tickets only!
