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.

The band comments:

“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. 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.”
