Love live music at a great price? Then you’ll want to check out the next two instalments of Live at Massey Hall, an accessibly priced concert and film series that presents the best of Canadian music in one of the best venues in the country. On May 27, the series presents Constantines with special guest Chad VanGaalen while on June 6, Spirit of the West and special guest Lisa LeBlanc will take to the stage.
The first show of season two took place on Saturday and featured Dan Mangan + Blacksmith and Hayden performing before a soldout crowd. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if these next two dates also sold out so if you want tickets, be sure to act fast. The public sale for both new dates is this Saturday at noon at MasseyHall.com and all tickets, for the entire venue, are $18.94, the same year that Massey Hall opened.
Also now available are all eight films from the first season of Live at Massey Hall. Watch 30-minute long performances by acts like The Rural Alberta Advantage and Cold Specks. My favourite show is the Basia Bulat one though the Timber Timbre video is also pretty great.
Disclosure: I work for Massey Hall and directly on this concert series.
