History, the concert and events venue on Queen Street East in the Beach, officially opens on the night of Sunday, November 7 with a concert by Bleachers.
Concerts were scheduled at History for October but did not take place due to capacity restrictions related to COVID-19.
Live Nation Canada announced in a press release earlier this week that the story will officially open “after restrictions on general admission capacity were lifted last week.”
History is a collaboration between Live Nation Canada and Canadian music legend Drake, and will have a capacity of 2,500 people.
It is located at 1663 Queen Street East, between Eastern Avenue and Coxwell Avenue, and is expected to host some 200 events per year.
“We’re excited to bring history to life in Toronto with live performances that we know will elevate the city’s concert experience,” said Riley O’Connor, President of Live Nation Canada, in the Press release.
âWe can’t wait for fans and artists to experience our brand new musical destination. “
Live Nation Canada is part of the California-based international company Live Nation. In Toronto, Live Nation Canada also operates the Danforth Music Hall, the Budweiser Stage at Ontario Place and the Velvet Underground.
At an online community meeting held in September this year, Live Nation Canada officials addressed the community’s concerns about the story and the impact it would have on residents living nearby.
