Burton Cummings Theatre
364 Smith Street
Winnipeg, MB R3B 2H2
Nestled on the edge of Winnipeg’s Exchange District, and a short few blocks from Bell MTS Place, is one of Canada’s most acclaimed live music and performance venues, The Burton Cummings Theatre. Named after the famed frontman of The Guess Who and Winnipegger, Burton Cummings, the theatre, affectionately known now as “The Burt” is an immediate draw with its unique appeal, both visually and sonically. The 1,581-seat theatre, both a National Historic Site of Canada and Provincial Heritage site, was built in 1906. True North Sports + Entertainment assumed management and operating control of the venue in 2014 and purchased it in 2016. Over the decades, the vaudeville era theatre has staged ballets, operas, Broadway-style shows to now modern-day concerts and events. Offering a vintage, yet carefully maintained interior space that includes a 70’ vaulted ceiling and three levels of audience seating, The Burt provides a memorable experience for both audience and performers. Under True North management, the annual event calendar has grown to include more than 70+ live entertainment events per year.
The impact of COVID-19 continues to prompt the review of a number of concerts and events across North America, including Winnipeg. The shows listed here have been postponed or cancelled.
