The Concert Hall in Toronto is the former meeting place of the Masons, whose origins trace back to medieval Britain. Constructed in 1918, the temple's concert hall played host to many legendary musicians, including The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, and The Who. In 2013, Info-Tech Research Group purchased the historic Masonic Temple from Bell Media. The Concert Hall is now home to Info-Tech's Toronto Office and Innovation Lab.
