Juno Awards set to unfold in Toronto with host Simu Liu

TORONTO — The Juno Awards return to the stage tonight with a little help from a Marvel superhero.

Canadian actor and “Shang-Chi” star Simu Liu will host this year’s celebration of homegrown music in Toronto with performances from Arcade Fire, Avril Lavigne and leading six-time nominee Charlotte Cardin.

It’s the first in-person Junos show since the 2020 ceremony in Saskatoon was derailed by the COVID-19 pandemic and pivoted to a virtual event. It will take place at Budweiser Stage — a covered, outdoor venue.
