Billy Talent to Play Free Show Tonight in Toronto
Later this month, angsty pop punks Billy Talent will embark upon a lengthy world tour, playing the European festival circuit and even heading to the southern hemisphere for a handful of shows in South Africa. Before they depart, the group will say goodbye to their hometown with a free show at Toronto's Horseshoe Tavern tonight (June 8).

The show was revealed on Facebook following the group's cryptic hints over the weekend that a big announcement was on the way. In a message posted on Monday (June 7) evening, the band wrote, "Attention all Toronto fans - tomorrow, June 8, Billy Talent will be playing a FREE show at the legendary Horseshoe Tavern in downtown Toronto, ON... This show is 19+ only and starts at 9 p.m. and the guys go on at 11 p.m. Make sure to show up early."

The Horseshoe has a 350-person capacity, so you'd be well advised to follow the band's advice to come early if you'd like to get inside.
