Billy Talent are throwing a benefit concert for victims of the Danforth shooting

The show at the Danforth Music Hall, taking place during Taste of the Danforth, will also feature City and Colour, PUP and more

Billy Talent are throwing a benefit concert during the Taste of the Danforth festival for the victims of the Danforth shooting. Joining them will be fellow Toronto artists City and Colour, PUP and more still to be announced. The TOronto TOgether concert will directly support the affected community. 

“What has happened in Toronto this summer and what happened on the Danforth a few blocks from our studio, has not only hit close to home, this HAS hit home,” Billy Talent said in a statement. 

“We want to throw a concert to show the world and more importantly our community that Toronto is a place of love, of community, of kindness and compassion. The violence that has happened here this summer does not represent the majority.”

While no one has the answers, they say, we can take action by coming together. 

All proceeds will be donated to #TORONTOSTRONG via the Toronto Foundation in support of the victims.

August 11 at Danforth Music Hall (147 Danforth), doors 7 pm. $TBA. On sale August 1.
