Having headlined OppiKoppi in 2010, Hilltop Live are proud to announce that Billy Talent will be returning to South Africa for two shows only.
After the success of their previous tour to South Africa, Canadian melodic punk rockers, Billy Talent, wanted to play at the OppiKoppi Bewilderbeast Festival but due to their touring schedule, the dates did not work out. The band jumped at the opportunity to be part of another event just shortly after.
On Friday 23 August 2013 Cape Town’s City Hall Auditorium, will be rocked like never before as the first concert of the band’s 2 leg tour. Fans of the band can purchase tickets to meet the band as well as limited edition tour merchandise at the concert.
The Pretoria Botanical Gardens will host a picnic like no other. The Post aKOPPPIlyptic Punk Picnic takes place on Saturday afternoon, where Billy Talent fans can expect the band to get on stage as the sun sets over the Capital City. Just to add to that, OppiKoppi Bewilderbeast attendees can look forward to a number of new benefits including a R100 discount when purchasing their Post aKOPPIlyptic Punk Picnic ticket, being able to purchase the official OppiKoppi Bewilderbeast merchandise (if they didn’t get round to doing so at the festival), as well as being reunited with lost phones, keys, personalities and even names that were left behind in the OppiKoppi dust at the OppiKoppi Lost and Found desk.
Billy Talent are currently touring as part of the Van’s Warped Tour USA, before traveling to Europe to headline three festivals as part of their promotion of the new album, “Dead Silence” (2012), the bands fourth studio album, which features the single, “Viking Death March”. The video for the single, shows 100,00 fans singing along to the song, and is testament to the loyalty of the band’s fans around the world.
