Top December Concerts In Toronto

With the holidays approaching, many musicians take time off of touring to be with loved ones. While Kanye West has cancelled his Toronto performance that was set for December 18th, there are still a number of major artists who will be taking to the various stages across the city this December. In particular, December is a big month for performances for Canadian musical heavyweights, many of whom are bringing their tours closer to home in time for the holidays. From Canadian icons to up-and-coming country duos, this month is sure to be a big one for live music. Here are a few of the most exciting performers coming to Toronto this month.

On December 1st, the iconic Canadian singer-songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk will return to the Toronto stage. The Winnipeg-born singer will be performing at the Danforth Music Hall to sing classics like “Believer,” along with songs off of her new album “Hard Sail.” Joining Kreviazuk is cello and vocalist Kevin James, a fellow Canadian performer.  

American rapper (and boyfriend to Ariana Grande) Mac Miller will be taking the Rebel stage on December 8th. The former bad boy is touring to promote his new album The Divine Feminine, a record that is largely about love and marks a big turning point for the artist.

Watch unique electronic music group A Tribe Called Red illuminate the Phoenix Concert Stage on December 9th.  The Ottawa-born band is comprised of three First Nations who incorporate elements of traditional First Nation music into their dup step sound.

The Nashville-formed country duo Dan + Shay will make their return to Canada on December 11th at the Danforth music hall. The country crooners met in 2012 and never looked back, having seen their songs featured on hit TV shows such as Nashville and The Bachelorette.

Get ready to rock out when the The Strumbellas hit the Danforth Music Hall for three headlining shows. The Toronto based alternative band formed in 2008 and quickly became a force to watch on the Canadian music scene. With one show on December 22nd and two back-to-back on the 23rd, Toronto fans of the rockers will have plenty of opportunities to get up close and personal with the band this month.
