Warner Music Canada recording artists Billy Talent will begin 2017 on a high note, heading out on a coast-to-coast Canadian tour that will take them all the way across the country.

Joining the band on tour are fellow Canadian rockers Monster Truck & The Dirty Nil.
For the first time ever, Billy Talent will be offering a limited number of VIP tickets on this tour. Fans who purchase this package will receive early entry to the venue, the opportunity to attend Billy Talentís sound check, as well as a meet and greet with the band. These VIP packages go on sale on October 25th. Go to http://billytalent.com/our-shows/ for all the details and links to tickets.
Billy Talent are touring in support of "Afraid of Heights", their new studio album. The album, their first in five years, topped the Canadian Neilsen Soundscan Top Albums chart upon its release in late July, marking the fourth consecutive #1 album for the group.
Billy Talent has partnered with Plus 1 on this tour to support 2 Canadian charities. $1 from every ticket sold goes to support MusiCounts, a Canadian non-profit organization that provides schools with musical instruments (www.musicounts.ca) and F.U.MS, a foundation that creates a series of events to support Canadian youth affected by Multiple Sclerosis (http://turningangerintohope.com/).
