Dwayne Gretzky’s new year’s eve Infinity Ball
Dwayne Gretzky have somehow built a reputation as a cool band that brings in a relatively young crowd while also playing almost exclusively dad rock covers. Naturally, that’s made them the city’s go-to New Year’s Eve party band, regularly selling out the Danforth Music Hall on December 31.
Now, after three straight years there, they’re moving the party to the significantly bigger Enercare Centre with what they’re calling Infinity Ball. They’re hoping it becomes a new Toronto tradition.
If the band’s repertoire of over 300 songs – from Springsteen to Fleetwood Mac to Tom Petty to Britney Spears – doesn’t do the trick, event organizers and “experiential architects” Young Offenders promise surprise guests, immersive interactive art exhibitions, food stalls and “infinite universe” activations. If you know what that means, you tell us.
What we do know is that Dwayne Gretzky will feed your insatiable New Year’s nostalgia (even if it’s nostalgia for years before you were born) with three themed sets that are still yet to be revealed.
Start the countdown. December 31 at the Enercare Centre (100 Princes’ Blvd, suite 1), 9 pm. $75-$89.
