Dwayne Gret­zky’s new year’s eve In­fin­ity Ball

NOW Magazine - - CLUBS & CONCERTS -

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.
