Hey everyone - you ready for show #2 Quebec City!? The great thing about playing 2 shows in each city is that on Day 2 we get to sleep in! Everything is mostly set up from last night so today we’ll just do a quick soundcheck, reset everything and be ready to rock once again.
Thought you might enjoy this interview Jon did with Ernie Ball discussing his MusicMan and all things bass! I’m sure it’s interesting to those of you that are musicians to learn what Jon plays, strings he uses and a little insight into the way Billy Talent writes & records.
Just about ready to soundcheck here in Quebec City - hope everyone enjoyed their time off and had a Happy Thanksgiving! The guys all enjoyed being home with their families for the holiday and now they’re ready to rock again .. like it’s 2003! The show in Toronto was AMAZING. It was so cool to hear the old songs played live and YOU, the fans, were incredible. Excited to meet more of you today!
Ben had a little something to say about the show in Toronto:
WOW!!! That’s all we can say. Thank you so much for such an amazing night. The energy in the room was unbelievable. It was a very nostalgic night for us and we had so many close friends and family there that have helped us and stood by us from the very beginning. This Thanksgiving we are thankful for having the most loyal and dedicated fans in the world!
Hello friends! It’s been a busy week in the world of BT. The guys have been rehearsing all the songs from the first record, and let me tell you, they sound amazing! I can’t wait to see them live in a packed room. On the crew side, we’ve been busy running around getting things sorted for the shows, supplies, throwback merch ;) and the like!
Below is a photo from their very first set of promo photos they shot with Dustin Rabin, it’s amazing to see 10 years later! If you like, there’s a whole album of photos from the BT1 era over on Facebook.
Hey friends - we’re here in Sterling Heights, MI getting set for Chill on the Hill with 30 Seconds to Mars. Just wanted to post the teaser for Runnin’ Across the Tracks - I’m super excited to see this one, it’s my favourite song off “Dead Silence” and I love this style of animation - stay tuned!
Ever wonder what it’s like inside our rolling home away from home? Bus Invaders came and the guys gave them a little tour - they describe me as “thorough” haha - what a compliment!
We are home for a little break right now but lots going on in the world of BT. The guys are practicing all the songs from Billy Talent I & getting ready for the #BT1turns10 shows!
In related news, the show in Vancouver on October 29 is sold out - so we added another one on October 30 - for all info & tickets check out the TOUR PAGE of billytalent.com. The shows are selling out so make sure you get your tickets soon!
Before we start those shows, we’ll be making a quick trip across the border for “Chill on the Hill” in Michigan & a show in Niagara, NY at the Rapids Theatre.
Hope everyone is doing well & getting pumped, I know we are!
