That’s right. Concerts are back. So if you’re staying in the GTA over the summer, check out this list of artists coming to Toronto. We’re sure you’re going to have a blast!

Although guitarist Neal Schon is their only constant member, you’re going to love listening to these classic hits live. “Don’t Stop Belivin'” is pretty much the epitome of getting through school so we are sure you’ll love this show.

With the recent release of his new album “Who Care’s?” Rex’s chill vibe with have you swaying to the beat.

We are sure his setlist will include some of his classics like “Bestfriend” and “Television/ So Far So Good.” Let’s hope the weather is good as it’s outside at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto.

The Weeknd (July 8)

“Save your tears for another day” because Toronto native The Weeknd is here for the “weekend” of July 8th! If you watched the NFL halftime show in 2020, you know you don’t want to miss this show happening at the Rogers Centre.

Clairo with special guest Jonah Yaro (Jul 26/27)

Looking for something more intimate? Clairo and special guests are performing at History, which only has a capacity of 2,500. Considering Clairo’s main genre is “Bedroom Pop” the more intimate setting is perfect. It’ll almost be like you’re listening to her music in your bedroom!
