Live Nation Canada has announced a new live entertainment venue called History, which will open later this year in collaboration with Drake.
History will have a capacity of 2,500 people, and it will host 200 concerts and events every year.
“Some of my most memorable shows were playing smaller rooms like History,” Drake explains in a statement. “I wanted to take those memories and what I learned to create an incredible experience for both the artists and the fans.”
The venue, which has been in development for more than three years, is scheduled to finish construction later this summer
“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,” Live Nation President and CEO Michael Rapino adds.
History will be situated in The Beaches at 1663 Queen Street East.
