Whenever Metallica comes to town, you KNOW it’s going to be wild! Supporting their newest album, Hardwired….To Self Destruct, came to Toronto with a bang and played one of the best rock/metal performances in years! I’d say it’s up there with AC/DC, who in 2015 returned to Downsview Park for the first time since 2003.

Touted as one of the best live acts in the world, Iron Maiden put on a show like no other act. Flags, Eddie…you name it! Having recovered from cancer, Bruce Dickinson was top notch as he usually is. A band that falls into the category of getting better with age.

They are back! They were away from the music scene for a bit, but they returned and boy did they return with a bang bang! (pun intended) Green Day takes all your built up rage and stress and allows you to sit back and just relax.

Artist: Bob Dylan
Venue: Air Canada Centre
City: Toronto
Date: July 5

Bob Dylan

A true legend. With each passing day, the world should be blessed to be able to hear Bob Dylan perform.

Artist: Queen
Venue: Air Canada Centre
City: Toronto
Date: July 18

Queen & Adam Lambert

It may not be Queen of the past, but it is still Queen. Brian May shredding guitar solos that are so good you hum them with him. A band that puts it all out there for the fans, and still has a bit of charm left for the new generation.
