“In a lot of ways, the history of Massey Hall is the history of Toronto itself. Over the last century and a quarter, the concert hall has been more than just a stage for Canadiana legends like Neil Young, Feist and the Tragically Hip, as well as local acts like July Talk graduating to the next stage of their careers.”
