Rogers Centre, the home of the Toronto Blue Jays and the only MLB ballpark in Canada, was opened in 1989 and is located in downtown Toronto situated next to the CN Tower near the shores of Lake Ontario.
Originally called the SkyDome, the venue has over the years hosted major events in addition to Blue Jays home games. From 2008 to 2012, the Buffalo Bills played at the stadium for eight games (five regular-season and three pre-season) as part of the Bills Toronto Series. Also, since it is the largest indoor concert venue in Canada, big names acts such as Madonna, Bon Jovi, U2 and Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band have all played there. This list will grow this summer as Taylor Swift is slated to play there as part of her RED tour on June 14 and June 15 and Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z are playing there on July 17 as part of their Legends of Summer tour.
