The opening of a new music venue in Toronto's east end is closer to reality.
Live Nation Music Hall has put the wheels in motion for a liquor sales licence according to a filing on the ACGO application page.
All the standard municipal red tape has been cleared and Live Nation has plans to operate the 2,700-person-capacity venue, which would occupy part of the off-track betting location at 1661 Queen St. E near Kingston Rd. and across from Woodbine Park.
The original proposal for the venue, which we reported on in July 2016, included plans for 150 shows per year, which means some big acts could make their way to this end of town, especially with the slated closing of Massey Hall for renovations.
