You know Massey Hall, but you don't know it like this. Introducing Massey Hall+ — the first-ever ticketed livestreaming service for the Toronto theatre and its sister venue, Roy Thomson Hall.

"While nothing can ever rival the excitement of attending a live concert, Massey Hall+ brings a new level of connection and intimacy to the incredible art and experiences from our iconic venues," Massey Hall President and CEO Jesse Kumagai said of the new service in a press release. "Breaking down barriers of access so our programming can reach a wider audience will only increase our impact in the community as we connect more people to the artists and music we love."

Massey Hall+ is integrated into the venue's preexisting online ticketing platform, making it easy to get in at the door — whether it's in-person or online — all from one place, without the need for separate logins and passwords. It will also enable hybrid event solutions, expanding the hall's physical space and highlighting in-house performances to a Canada-wide audience and beyond.

To be the first to hear about ticketed livestream events and watch exclusive on-demand content, music fans can download the free Massey Hall+ app at Right now, you can watch the previously recorded Live at Massey Hall film series, as well as documentaries, acoustic sessions and Roy Thomson Hall lobby performances with state-of-the-art audio and visual quality. You'll also find emerging artist profiles, music education programming and more.

Furthermore, fans who download the app today can access never-before-streamed concert films that include Buffy Sainte-Marie (November 2021), Patrick Watson (June 2018) and Celebrating Massey Hall — the hour-long Massey Hall Day film featuring performances from Jim Cuddy, Sarah Harmer, July Talk, Sam Roberts and more, all backed by Whitehorse.
