A Musical Walk Down Yonge Street in Toronto

If you’ve ever been to the UK, maybe you’ve got on an London Walk, a series of cool tours that highlight the history of the city. One of the better ones is the Beatles Walk which hits all the landmarks before ending up at Abbey Road Studios.

I’ve long maintained that Toronto should have something like this. And now it does. Shane from sister website Geeks&Beats reports:

This free walk down memory lane is brought to you by the good people at Heritage Toronto.  We’ll visit Massey Hall, the Eaton Auditorium, the sites of famous clubs like The Colonial Friar, and Le Coq D’Or. Led by Nicolage Jennings the tour guide will share stories about Oscar Peterson, Ronnie Hawkins and Glenn Gould, among others.

More details can be found here.
