Canadian punk band Billy Talent to perform at Victoria’s Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre


Get ready, Victoria!

Canadian punk quartet Billy Talent is coming to Victoria as  part of their highly anticipated world-wide tour kicking off today in United Kingdom.

Known for their energetic performances and genre-defying music, Billy Talent has captivated audiences since the late 1990s, gradually building a dedicated fanbase before exploding into mainstream success in 2003 with their debut album, “Billy Talent.”

Their subsequent studio albums, including the multi-platinum “Billy Talent II” and “Billy Talent III,” soared to the top of the Canadian Albums chart, thanks to their ever-evolving sound and the unwavering support of their fans. After a six-year hiatus, the band made a triumphant return in 2022 with “Crisis of Faith,” which produced three consecutive number-one hits on Canadian Rock Radio and garnered two Juno nominations.

On October 11th,  the Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre will play host to the Juno Award-winning Billy Talent, with special guests Gob.

In addition to the excitement surrounding Billy Talent’s performance, the audience will also be treated to the electrifying sound of Gob, a pioneering Canadian pop-punk outfit.

With a career spanning back to 1993 and seven full-length albums under their belt, Gob has cemented themselves as influential figures in the genre. Their JUNO nominations and popular music videos have further solidified their status, making them a must-see act.

Fans of both Billy Talent and Gob are eagerly anticipating the upcoming concert in Victoria, eager to witness an unforgettable night of high-energy music and memorable performances. As the bands take the stage, the audience can expect an explosive show filled with infectious melodies, raw energy, and a true celebration of punk rock.

Tickets for their Victoria date go on sale at 10 a.m. this  Friday, June 2nd for $50.50 to $65.50 at the box office or online here.
