In a collaboration with Live Nation, Drake is helping to open up a brand new Entertainment Venue in Toronto. The space, called ‘History,’ has a capacity of 2500 for a more intimate setting for artists who visit and perform. The plan is to host about 200 concerts every year. History has been in development for over three years, with construction scheduled to be complete later this summer. The venue is situated in the east end of the city, in the heart of The Beaches neighbourhood at 1663 Queen Street East.
“Some of my most memorable shows were playing smaller rooms like History,” said Drake. “I wanted to take those memories and what I learned to create an incredible experience for both the artists and the fans.”
Michael Rapino, President and CEO, Live Nation Entertainment says “We saw an opportunity to bring Toronto a great new venue, and we have so much gratitude and respect for Drake teaming up with us to bring it to life in the best way possible.”
