Billy Talent III Tour

The III Tour is a current concert tour by band Billy Talent, taking place from 2009, in support of their third studio album Billy Talent III.

On this tour, early before the release of the album, the band debuted some songs from the album, including "Turn Your Back", "Devil on My Shoulder", "Rusted from the Rain" and "Saint Veronika".

The tour started on February 21, 2009, less than a year after the ending of the band's previous tour, in Brisbane, Australia, with a short Australian leg. Following that, the band went on to some festival appearances, mostly in Europe, but also in North America, with a full North American leg in the summer. In the first part of the North American leg, the band was a support act on the Rise Against/Rancid summer tour, and on the second part, the band headlined a North American tour with Poison the Well supporting. The band then embarked on a tour of Europe with support from Cancer Bats (all dates) and The Canterbury's (UK only) and Silverstein (rest of Europe).

In 2010, the band will embark on a full-scale Canadian tour, with Alexisonfire, Against Me! and Cancer Bats
