Music Hall of Famer Andy Kim is excited about returning to live. His long-running annual Christmas show had to go virtual last year because of the pandemic, albeit it did allow the Sugar Sugar/ Rock Me Gently hitmaker to finally have the fundraiser televised and taken to a national audience, raising over $200,000.
The 17th Andy Kim Christmas will be staged at the newly renovated Massey Hall in Toronto on Dec. 8 and features a typically stellar lineup of guests: Billy Talent, The Sheepdogs, Ron Sexsmith, Rush’s Alex Lifeson, Jully Black, Tyler Shaw, Sloan, William Prince, Mary Margaret O’Hara, the E Street Band’s Jake Clemons, Men Without Hats, The Pursuit of Happiness, Theo Tams, Beverly Mahood, Georgia Harmer and Choir, Choir, Choir.
“All the artists I’ve asked are as excited as I am to be surrounded by live music again. There’s nothing better. Add Massey Hall to the equation and I get the feeling we’re getting back to normal,” Kim told Samaritan in an email.
Tickets are available on the Massey Hall website, ranging in price from $37.50 to $97.50 (plus service charges). The show usually sells out. Over the 17 years, Kim’s concert has raised more than $1.8 million for charity. – Continue reading on the Samaritanmag website.
