Today, Canadian multi–platinum selling rock band Billy Talent have announced they’ll be returning home this summer, hitting Budweiser Stage on July 8th, 2023. Produced by Live Nation Canada, the show will also feature iconic hip–hop group Cypress Hill, along with Toronto’s own Cancer Bats and The OBGMs.
“TORONTO! There’s nothing like coming home. We are beyond stoked to be coming back to the Bud Stage as it’s been way too long since we last played there,” say the rockers. “With that in mind, we wanted to do something special and to bring the most bad ass line up we could. We are honoured to be sharing the stage with the legends Cypress Hill as well as our old pals in Cancer Bats and one of our fav new bands in the OBGMs! Can’t wait to see you all under the stars.”

The show announcement comes on the heels of Billy Talent’s incredibly successful 2022 Canada–wide tour with Rise Against. They also released their sixth studio album CRISIS OF FAITH in 2022. The ten track LP was produced entirely by the band’s guitarist and main songwriter, Juno–nominated producer Ian D’Sa, in the band’s Toronto studio. The album saw enormous success, delivering three #1 radio singles – “Reckless Paradise,” “I Beg to Differ (This Will Get Better),” and “End of Me,” featuring Rivers Cuomo of Weezer. These tracks have combined to spend 21 weeks atop the Canadian rock radio charts, with “End of Me” marking the band’s longest standing #1 radio single in their career at 11 weeks in the top spot, eclipsing only “Reckless Paradise” which held the top spot for nine weeks. The trio of chart–toppers from the same album is a first in Billy Talent’s storied career, joining only The Black Keys and Foo Fighters to have three #1 singles from the same album.
