      Live Nation has just announced that Canadian rock group Billy Talent will perform at the Pacific Coliseum—with guests Sum 41, Hollerado, and Indian— on Thursday, March 14, 2013 in support of its fourth studio album Dead Silence.

      Consisting of guitarist Ian D'Sa, singer Ben Kowalewicz, drummer Aaron Solowoniuk,and bassist Jon Gallant, Billy Talent has been active for nearly 20 years.

      Released in September, Dead Silence was recorded in three different studios in Toronto, Vancouver, and Los Angeles. The album was produced by D'Sa and is perfect proof of the group's inner strength, focus, and work ethic--traits that have turned it into a successful international rock act.

      Tickets for the show are priced at $29.75, $47.75, $52.75 (plus service charges) and go on sale next Friday (December 7) at 10 a.m. on the Live Nation website.

      Tickets will also be available for purchase by phone at 604-757-0345, at the Pacific Coliseum Box Office, and Rogers Wireless Box Office.

      Billy Talent, around for 20 years? Where the h#$% have I been for the last 20 years? You mean I could have been listening to this "successful international rock act" when I was 10?
