Patti Smith to play two shows in Toronto
TORONTO - Punk pioneer Patti Smith is going to play a pair of shows at a Toronto art gallery hosting an upcoming exhibition of her photography.
The Art Gallery of Ontario will welcome the rocker, poet and visual artist on March 7, with separate performances at 7:30 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. ET.
Tickets for the standing room-only shows will cost $15 for the public and $13 for gallery members.
Smith will be backed by musicians Jesse Paris Smith (her daughter) and Tony Shanahan for the performances.
The first Canadian exhibition of Smith's visual art, meanwhile, opens Feb. 9.
It's set to feature more than 75 works of photography and film and will run until May 19.
"We're delighted that Patti will be spending some time with our members and visitors," the gallery's director and CEO Matthew Teitelbaum said in a statement.
"Camera Solo is a uniquely intimate collection of works, and Patti is a true original. This exhibition exemplifies the AGO’s commitment to bringing Torontonians the very best in contemporary art."
