Billy Talent has wrapped up their elaborate and extensive Dead Silence Canadian tour which saw special guests Sum 41, Hollerado and Indian Handcrafts.
With 20 shows lined up the tour started on March 14th at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, BC and ended on April 16th at the Cunard Centre in Halifax, NS. Included on the tour were stops in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, and Quebec.
We provided production services for the entire tour. Midas Pro 6 and Pro 2 consoles as well as an Avid Profile and SC48 were specified for the tour. Monitoring systems for each performer, as well as custom stage requirements allowed the band to concentrate on what they do best, ROCK THE HOUSE!!!! Billy Talent’s Production Manager extraordinaire and adjunct faculty member Matt Blakely was on site making sure that each show was over the top. In the past Matt has toured with Three Days Grace, Avril Lavigne, Bruce Springsteen, Styx, Blue Rodeo, and Slayer. Matt's also had FOH or TD roles in local festivals, political conventions and corporate events like Edge Fest, Rock the Park, Reach for the Rainbow, HMV Music Conference and the Dalai Lama National Address.
