Say ‘YES’ to concerts in 2017

The year just keeps getting better and better in the 6ix. With food festivals already underway and exciting movies on the horizon, what else do Torontonians have to look forward to in 2017? CONCERTS! Experiencing your favourite artist or band live is such an exhilarating feeling –  you just can’t stop yourself from singing (or screaming) the lyrics to your favourite jam or fangirling with a crowd of complete strangers. And with a killer concert line-up this year, music lovers are sure to be groovin’ straight into the new year. Here’s our concert wish list:

Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience

When: Saturday, March 4, 2017 | Where: Air Canada Centre

From your screens and to the stage, Game of Thrones IS COMING. Composer Ramin Djawadi plans to give audiences an “immersive music and visual experience” with a full orchestra and choir, so you can kick back and imagine you’re in the show yourself! A concert so intense they make Khaleesi’s dragons look tame! Ok, maybe not but if it’s anywhere as incredible as the show, you’re definitely in for an unforgettable musical experience.

Ariana Grande: Dangerous Woman Tour

When: Sunday, March 5, 2017 | Where: Air Canada Centre

Ariana’s positively infectious vocals are coming back to bless us for her third concert! With the variety she packs into her album, you could say Ariana is a musical force to be reckoned with. She’ll definitely get you groovin’ “Side to Side.”

Lionel Richie: All the Hits

When: Thursday, March 30, 2017 | Where: Air Canada Centre

Your hearts will melt when you hear his angelic voice pulse through the stadium. His classic throwbacks will have you in love all over again. While this makes a perfect date night concert, we take no responsibility if Lionel Richie turns out to be the man your date was, in fact, looking for.

Bon Jovi: This House is not for Sale

When: Tuesday, April 11, 2017 | Where: Air Canada Centre

Did you miss them? We sure did, and we have the karaoke videos to prove it.

The Weeknd: Starboy Legend of the Fall

When: Friday, May 26, 2017 | Where: Air Canada Centre

When does he EVER fail us. Think of his short film MANIA as a teaser for his concert… awesome right?

Kehlani: SweetSexySavage Tour

When: Sunday, June 4, 2017 | Where: Rebel (Toronto)

This is a special one; Kehlani’s FIRST tour for her album SweetSexySavage. The grammy-nominated songstress definitely has something special in store for her audience.

Total Package Tour: New Kids On The Block, Paula Abdul and Boyz II Men

When: Tuesday, June 20, 2017 | Where: Air Canada Centre

Ok, hold up! What did we do to deserve all this talent all in ONE show? A nostalgic experience that should not be missed! Seriously, when do you think you’d ever have a chance to experience this level of throwback all at once? The Total Package Tour is a total gift from these classic artists, so don’t miss out on it!

U2: The Joshua Tree Tour

When: Friday, June 23, 2017 | Where: Rogers Centre

SOLD OUT, already? We’re not surprised… With numerous hit albums under their belt and being the true definition of musical veterans, these guys are definitely worth scouring third-party ticketing sites for. Your wallet might hate you, but your musical soul won’t.

Coldplay: A Head Full of Dreams Tour

When: Monday, August 21, 2017 | Where: Rogers Centre

Bright, bold and full of energy! You can probably expect anything from bursting confetti to coloured Holi powder to shoot out from the sky at a Coldplay’s concert. This one is definitely on our bucket list!

Bruno Mars: 24K Magic World Tour

When: Saturday, August 26, 2017 | Where: Air Canada Centre

If you find yourself reminiscing about old high school dances in the 90’s, this is the concert for you. Prepare for a sweaty atmosphere filled with good vibes and soul-funk sounds. Bruno Mars will definitely have you dancing all night!

Get’cha wallets ready folks! Trust us, with a concert line-up so big you’ll have memories and #TBT posts for months, maybe even years to come!

It is horror? NO! More like an intense psychological thriller. Kevin (James McAvoy) struggles with dissociative identity disorder and lives with 24 different personalities – one still unknown. Led to abduct three girls, Kevin struggles to keep his personalities at bay, while his victims try to escape the terror.

The Space Between Us

Now we can’t forget a romance title out of the must-see list. This one is bound to have you in your feelings the whole way through. Imagine being born and raised in space for 16 years, only ever interacting with a limited number of people in your lifetime. That’s how life was for Elliot (Asa Butterfield) until taking his first adventure to earth. Overwhelmed at first, Elliot befriends a girl he met online (from space) to help him discover the realities of how he came to be. But like any good romance, there’s a plot twist! And for that, you’ll just have to hit the theatre.

Beauty and the Beast

Disney’s back at it again with the classic fairytale release. This time with Emma Watson playing Princess Belle, who is trapped in a castle with the beast, and eventually falls in love – obviously not for looks. Nothing beats the original animation, but this remake sure looks like it’ll be box office gold.

The Fate of the Furious

Trailer link

Another one? Yes, the Fast and Furious franchise continues. Just when we thought all the battles were settled in the 7th movie. Everyone is living the ‘normal’ life now but Dom turns for the worse it seems. It’s a matter of getting him back from the dark side of crime and reminding him which side he belongs on.

Release date: Friday, April 14, 2017

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

History never looked better. Charlie Hunnam plays Arthur in this action packed adventure of reclaiming one’s true title. Who knew pulling a sword from the stone would cause vast amounts of chaos?

Wonder Woman

Daughter of Zeus and Princess of the Amazons – Wonder Woman finally has her own movie. She’s just as powerful and popular as her male counterparts in the Justice League. Gal Gadot who plays Wonder Woman is definitely one of DC’s best character match ups following Ben Affleck in Batman.
