The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto will be celebrating its 70th birthday on December 6, 2017. Seventy years has never looked so good! This iconic Queen Street venue is part of the collective pulse of the Toronto music scene and has put together a series of very special concerts, presented by INDIE88 and EXCLAIM! , to run from September 26 – December 31 to celebrate.
The concert series is kicking off with three consecutive nights of Billy Bragg on September 26 – 28. Other artists who will take part in the festivities include DOA, Hollerado, The Pursuit of Happiness, 54.40 and Elliot Brood.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow (August 3) at NOON ET via Ticketfly, Rotate This, Soundscapes and Horseshoe Tavern’s Box Office.
Tying in with the 70th birthday celebration is the publishing of the upcoming book, The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern: A Complete History, set for publication by Dundurn Press on September 23 by local author David McPherson. Horseshoe Tavern will celebrate the launch with a private media and industry event on October 11, followed by a no-cover night with a local band. The foreword for the book was written by none other than Jim Cuddy (Blue Rodeo).

I’m Nicole, a biology teacher by day, but my life revolves around music. I’m that girl that you will always find with the concert t-shirt on and ear buds in. It is rare that you find me without some type of music playing in the background. I connect all of my life experiences to music. It truly has its own language in my heart. There is nothing more exciting than taking in all that a concert has to offer. I love to support local Canadian acts and attend as many shows that I can.
