    Montreal concerts happening this December 2017? I cover the big tickets, the indie circuit and everything in between. Locals? Get out of the house! Not every concert ticket costs a week's worth of groceries. And esteemed visitors? Don't retire to your hotel room just yet. Take a look at which musicians made my Montreal concerts December 2017 hit list and enjoy the best live music this city has to offer. 

    Just keep in mind that December is a slow period for concerts in the city. By December 20, 2017, you can hear that proverbial pin drop in most of Montreal's concerts venues.

    Admission, dates, and concert venues are subject to change without notice. ALWAYS check show information directly with ticket sellers after consulting my Montreal December Concerts 2017 hit list just in case.
