Toronto is fortunate to be graced with more than one stellar venue for the arts. The Sony Centre, originally the O’Keefe Centre, which opened in 1960, was recently restored and offers a full theatrical experience to patrons. Like the people of Toronto itself, performance events are international and unique. You won’t find them anywhere else. Kraftwerk, a wildly original techno band, hails from Germany; Brit Floyd, a Pink Floyd tribute band is, obviously, British; the Brazilian group who perform “Tango Legends” bring authenticity to the sultry dance. Other performers represent the Philippines, Jamaica, Hong Kong and the United States.
Tickets are reasonably priced and discounts are not hard to come by. Following a trend to bring young people into more eclectic events, the Centre offers a free under-30 Club with discounts and special offers. Group discounts are handled by a separate agency. Municipal parking is available, but the Union Station bus stop is only two blocks from the Centre.
