The boys are back in town! The Mississauga Arts Council announced that Canada’s Superstar Punk Rock Band, Billy Talent, will host this year’s ‘Sauga Stars Youth Talent Showcase in celebration of the Meadowvale Theatre’s 25th Anniversary on April 25, 2014!

This is a major cause for celebration for MAC’s Limelight Association of Young Artists and the community who will have the opportunity to see their Punk Rock Idols hosting live at the event. Billy Talent will be giving back to the community where they were raised by donating their talents to appear at this special event produced by MAC in collaboration with the Meadowvale Theatre Advisory Board.
Having met and cultivated their talents in the Meadowvale Community in the early 90’s, Billy Talent has gone on to achieve international fame and success as one of the world’s most influential Punk Rock collectives. Comprised of musicians Ben Kowalewicz (lead vocals), Ian D’Sa (guitar), Jon Gallant (bass) and Aaron Solowoniuk (drums), the multi-platinum recording artists are pleased to return to their hometown to inspire the hearts and minds of Mississauga’s local youth artists at the event.
