[A report from Elisa F.G. – AC]
Massey Hall’s hosting a massive shindig this month, one that may crank up a strong sense of Canadian pride. Forewarned is forearmed. Canada’s Walk of Fame announced its latest inductees and it’s quite a list!
Thirteen of the best 70s and 80s Canadian music legends are getting the royal-rockstar treatment, and a gold star! – Not the sticky gold star elementary school teachers issue, the kind that cements fairly high ranked musicians into music history as well as a famous sidewalk.
April Wine, Chilliwack, Glass Tiger, Lee Aaron, Lighthouse, Loverboy, Max Webster, Michel Pagliaro, Platinum Blonde, PRISM, Rough Trade, The Parachute Club, and Trooper are the latest and lucky thirteen chosen to take their rightful seat at the (metaphorical) badass table of legends.
Our very own Alan Cross will be inducting Max Webster, a pretty cool honour for both parties, I’m sure. Thursday September 28 2023 Canadas Walk of Fame will be presenting (for the first time ever) Canadas Rock of Fame, a live mega induction and the first of two induction ceremonies at Massey Hall. As part of the organizations 25th Anniversary celebration itinerary of events, Canadas Walk of Fame and official partners Anthem Entertainment and Live Nation banded together to mark the milestone in true rock and roll fashion by adding one key element, rockstars! The annual induction ceremony and broadcast will be in December 2023. Not a bad way to end the year! (To those who dread snow, apologies for using the “D” word.)
Thursday September 28th 2023 Canadas Rock of Fame kicks off for the first time at Massey Hall, 178 Victoria Street in Toronto at 6:00pm.
Tickets for the event are available here.
