Onsale Times

Generator is back! Chris Hadfield’s famed comedy, music and ideas extravaganza is returning to Roy Thomson Hall. Last year saw Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer musically eulogize Leonard Cohen, the world’s first cyborgs turn colour into sound, Mythbuster Adam Savage wax philosophic, and much, much more. It isn’t an easy show to describe – you just have to experience it to understand.

The theme of this year’s show is ‘The Second Genius’ and will host a variety of guests from the UK, Europe, Canada and the United States. As with the last two years of the more than a dozen presenters, the only guests announced in advance are the perennials; Chris Hadfield as host, BBC’s Robin Ince as emcee and Tupperware Remix Party as the house band - all kicked off by the show’s creative engine, Evan Hadfield.
