Venue Information

The Masonic Temple also known as the CTV Temple or the MTV Temple, is a four story building located in Toronto, Canada, on the north-west corner of Davenport Avenue and Yonge Street.

Built in 1918, it has previously been known as the "Concert Hall", and the "Rockpile" (a nightclub). It was home to Torontos first Led Zeppelin concert in 1969. It is of historic significance and was added to the City of Torontos Inventory of Heritage Properties in 1974 and was designated under the Ontario Heritage Act in 1997. The building has changed hands a number of times, and in 1997 was threatened with demolition. A developer had planned a new highrise residential building marketed to Asians, solely to exploit its "lucky" address of 888 Yonge Street.

In the 1990s, the studio was home of Open Mike with Mike Bullard, and was rented as a rehearsal venue by the Rolling Stones. In March 2006, the building became the broadcast home of the new MTV Canada.
