I've seen dozens of concerts and comedy shows at Massey Hall and I love the place. In fact, if there's a performer who is not a huge fave of mine but I do like and I'm uncertain if I want to see them---if the show is at MH it will sway my decision to attend. OMG I read a ton... More

I'm so in love with this venue. It has charm and character. Great autistics and feels very intimate. Very comfortable reclining seating and perfect size. Another wonderful concert with Canadian jazz misusing Diana Krall Every seat is a great seat here.

This is the place to see your favorite artist. Excellent acoustics no matter where you sit. There is not a lot of room at your seat but the whole experience makes up for that. This is one of our favorite venues.

I've seen probably 100 concerts in Toronto and never ended-up here until recently. This place is a fantastic venue for a smaller show as it is very intimate and steeped in history. Acoustics in the hall are great and friends of ours confirmed this in other locations throughout the hall. There's a nice little bar in the basement and is... More

Built in the 1800's, great place to see a concert, about 3000 people.Excellento for sound no matter you sit. The gallery seats are from 1800's, small wooden fold down chairs. Uncomfortable, but still worth it to see any concert. There is not elevator, a long set of stairs to the balcony and gallery.

We had second row seats to see Spandau Ballet. At first, I was concerned that it would be too loud, but it wasn't. It was a intimate, yet rocking.

I'm giving Massey Hall a four star rating because of its historical significance to the City of Toronto. It is certainly due for an update and the number of stairs are challenging for elderly patrons and those with knee problems. The seats are not comfortable and there is no leg room. There are also no cup holders so you have... More

This is my second time to Massey hall and I have loved it each time. I is time it was for Damien Rice and what a fantastic show. We didn't plan to go as it was a sold out show for some time, scalpels have a lot of the tickets, however seats usually come available the day before the show... More

I was at Massey Hall with my brother-in-law to see Colin James in concert. Massey Hall is arguably the best musical venue in the GTA and has been since it opened in 1894. The acoustics are outstanding. Our seats were on the floor level in about the 10th row but to the extreme left (we could not see the keyboard... More
