Mr. Jimmy – Live at Kobayashi Hall

Presented by the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre in association with Per Se Brand Experience 

10% discount at the Toronto Don Valley Hotel, available for all attendees available here

Akio Sakurai and his band, Mr. Jimmy, will make their Canadian debut with a three-night residency at the Kobayashi Hall on August 8th, 9th, and 10th.  

The shows will be a faithful recreation of the three-night residency that Led Zeppelin held at Madison Square Garden in 1973 that led to the hit live album and film The Song Remains the Same, with a few surprises. Sakurai’s passion, virtuosity, and attention to detail will transport audiences to the front rows of an iconic moment in rock and roll history. From painstakingly correct vintage instruments, amplifiers, lighting, and stage gear, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. 

The JCCC is proud to go the extra mile to present Mr. Jimmy exactly as the band is meant to be seen, heard and experienced.  The shows will be the closest you will ever get to the experience of an authentic 1973 concert – minus the “cigarette” smoke.
