Turn your next date night into an evening of musical magic at Toronto’s historic Massey Hall. Originally built in 1894, this majestic 3,000-seat theater has hosted legends like George Gershwin, Charlie Parker, and Dizzy Gillespie over the years. Among most modern Canadians, though, it’s the famous setting for All the World’s a Stage, the 1976 live album from native Toronto rockers Rush. But whether you’re a fan of classic jazz or progressive rock, you’ll find your musical match, with the stars of every genre–as well as comedy and spoken word–gracing the stage at some point during the year. So reserve tickets for a performance, and when the evening finally arrives, escort your date into the impressive hall, whose elegant decor has earned it the nickname of “the Carnegie Hall of Canada.” Take your seats, squeeze each other’s hands in anticipation, and enjoy the exceptional acoustics, high-quality sound system, and clear sight lines. Tickets to shows at Massey Hall can cost a pretty penny, but for acts like Elvis Costello, Eddie Vedder, and the Weeknd, it’s worth splurging. The concert might only last an evening, but the memories last a lifetime.
