Toronto’s music scene can be pretty hectic.
In fact, often the only thing busier than the venues in this city is you. And since we know that a young professional (YP) lifestyle needs a good beat to back it up, we’re going to round up the best shows happening over the next seven days.
Every. Single. Week.
You don’t have to waste any more of your time searching for the next best concert – ‘cause every Monday you’ll find it right here. Or Tuesday, if it’s been a long weekend.
KINGS OF LEON / MOLSON AMPHITHEATRE / TUESDAY 6PM
The brothers from Nashville join Young The Giant to play the Amphitheatre Tuesday evening after closing out Lollapalooza in Chicago this past weekend. This is not their first rodeo.
PANIC! AT THE DISCO / ECHO BEACH / WEDNESDAY 6:30PM
Make your way to the beach after work on Wednesday to catch The Gospel Tour. Walk The Moon and Magic Man open this all-ages show. Hump Day likes to include everyone.
THE OFFSPRING & BAD RELIGION / ECHO BEACH / THURSDAY 5:30PM
Along with Pennywise, these guys haven’t performed together in 20 years. Back in 1994 they took the stage when the California punk band had just released the hugely successful Smash, and they’re back together again to celebrate it by playing the album in its entirety. This is nostalgia at its best.
JOHN LEGEND / MOLSON AMPHITHEATRE / FRIDAY 6:30PM
Friday evening belongs to John Legend as he hits up the Amphitheatre, continuing his North American tour for the critically acclaimed Love In The Future. He so smooth.
TORI AMOS / MASSEY HALL / FRIDAY 7:30PM
If you’re looking for something a little darker Friday, your best bet is to head to Massey Hall for the legendary and fearless Tori Amos. Want to feel old? Tori is now 50. You’re welcome.
MOTLEY CRUE & ALICE COOPER / MOLSON AMPHITHEATRE / SUNDAY 6PM
Motley Crue join Alice Cooper at the Amphitheatre for their official ‘goodbye’ tour. Seeing both Tommy Lee and Alice Cooper on the same stage will likely spice up an otherwise tame Sunday evening – some kind of shock rock is guaranteed to happen. We should add that the likelihood of this being an actual goodbye is highly unlikely.
