Media: Benefit Concert: Billy Talent + Sum 41

Postby Heather on Wed Jul 27, 2011 3:12 pm

So we are pleased to announce that we are coming back to one of our favourite cities in the world and this time we're coming with some friends to help out one of our nearest and dearest. We have had the pleasure of working with our lighting guy Dan for a million years and have travelled many, many miles together and he has been part of some of our most memorable shows. Our crew guys are our family. We care for them the same way we care for our families off the road and as you all know by now, we are very loyal, especially to one of our own.

Unfortunately, our dear friend Dan and his wife are going through one of the toughest times in their lives. They have an amazing three-year-old little boy named Xavier who is great little dude and has been to many of our shows and in August 2010 he was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma Stage IV.

He has since been getting some serious treatments in Canada and the US and is fighting for his life. While undergoing some intense procedures he is still doing it with a smile on his face and still being that special little boy that he is. They are an amazing family that is filled with love and hope and are trying their best to stay strong and get through this and hopefully all get to live long, healthy, happy lives together but they need help - our help and your help.

We, along with our very old friends and comrades in Sum 41, who Dan also works with, have decided to play a show at The Vogue Theatre in Vancouver on July 19 with all the proceeds raised going directly to Dan and his family to help offset their travel and medical bills for Xavier.

We truly hope that you all can make it. It's going to be a very special night for everyone and we hope that you can be part of it. Always remember, if someone falls, you pick them back up!

With lots of love and undying support for you all,

Ben

The band did a lot of their older, more popular songs, but talked a fair deal about their new album. They also took a pause from playing their own music to give a mini tribute to metal music, playing some classic metal tunes from popular bands like Metallica.

Would have been pretty cool if the bands had guest appearances in each others sets, like the time Ian played Pain 4 Pleasure.

I like seeing Stevo smiling in the In Too Deep video. Sick of musicians just looking all hardcore or bored on stage
