Belvedere has been playing and touring for 3 years now. They started the band when they realized that professional wrestling was getting them nowhere fast (the whole band's combined weight is about 500 pounds). So off touring the continent they went. Belvedere had been on numerous comps throughout Canada, California, Washington and Texas. They've released their first album "Because No One Stopped US" and stopped them no one has. Since that release, Belvedere had toured the Western US and Canada 5 times. They were also the winners of the Bad Religion / Warped Tour contest. If that wasn't enough, they're set to leave on a 30 day Canadian tour from Vancouver to Halifax with a few shows with Bad Religion and Strung Out in May '99. Since then there have been subsequent tours with Strung out and The Mad Caddies, Multiple videos made and a new album. 'Twas Hell Said Former Child. Come see us when we hit your town. It's inevitable that we will. (Luv Mr. Rawles and Belvedere)

(Update as of Friday, September 17, 2021) Due to new restrictions and the delay of the Phase 4 roll out, we need to communicate with you the situation for this upcoming Belvedere show.
The good news is we are still going to proceed but the bad news is our capacity has been significantly reduced due to these current restrictions for indoor events. This could change at any time but for now we'll have to sell the show based on the current Phase 3 restrictions.
COVID Conditions & Capacity for Victoria Event Centre (Phase 3)
Victoria Event Centre can accommodate 82 - 90 seated audience.
Anyone attending the show must have proof of having at least one dose of the vaccine. This is a provincial law for British Columbia as of September 13, 2021. On October 24th everyone will need to show proof of two doses.
For more detailed information about Victoria Event Centre's COVID safety procedures please visit: https://victoriaeventcentre.ca/covid19/
Due to these new changes the show is now more than 50% sold out.
On Saturday, September 18, 2021 at 10am all remaining tickets will be sold in tables with groups of 4, 6 or 8 on ticketweb.ca. There are very few tables remaining so if you want to attend this show we suggest you purchase a table as soon as they go back on sale.
The advance ticket price per ticket will remain at $14.50 but the prices on the tables will reflect the groupings. So when you purchase a table of 4 it will cost $58.00 and so on.
Your favourite skate punks from Calgary BELVEDERE are back to Victoria with guests Blacked Out on Friday, October 15 at Victoria Event Centre. This is the rescheduled show that was to happen in April 2020 to commemorate 25 years of the band. In recent years Belvedere has been around the world playing on major festivals in Europe, South America, Canada and the US! Just prior to the pandemic Belvedere played in Medellin, Colombia's Altavoz Festival whom many of our Colombia ska reggae bands have played.
In May of 2021 Belvedere released a new album called "Hindsight is the Sixth Sense" on Thousand Island Records which they'll be featuring selections off of at the show.
We're excited to also welcome back Fableway who are skate punk veterans of Victoria! This will be the second time Fableway has played with Belvedere since the last all ages show with Sweetleaf in 2016.
Finally Blacked Out will be opening on the bill with more skate punk from Vancouver with a touch of thrash. So there you have it.
