2000s

Everyone’s favourite early 2000’s pop-punk group will be performing in Halifax next month alongside Monster Truck and the Dirty Nil for a nostalgic show that can’t be missed.  March 6th at the Scotiabank Centre fans will have the chance to relive their teenage glory days as part of Billy Talent’s Afraid Of Heights tour, with advance tickets starting at $49.25.  Pick one up here.

The band has partnered with Plus 1 on their tour to support two Canadian charities - $1 from every ticket sold goes to support MusiCounts, a Canadian non-profit organisation that provides schools with musical instruments and F.U.MS, a foundation that creates a series of events to support Canadian youth affected by Multiple Sclerosis.  Plus 1 is a philanthropic organisation started by members of Arcade Fire which seeks to affect social change through music by partnering with touring bands to create charitable opportunities which fans can support simply by purchasing tickets to see their favourite acts.

The 90's and 2000's were a great time to be a kid. We had Heelies, frosted-tipped boy bands and Furbies. The McDonald's slogan was still "Put a smile on". And the songs that played on the radio were completely different from the ones that play now.

A successful TV show is one that is still revisited beyond its glory days by both loyal fans and new viewers. It's a show that can appeal individuals of all ages, regardless of the demographic it is actually intended for.

That being said, teen shows from the past could therefore be classified as successful shows, since most of them somehow managed to keep us coming back. In fact, some of them might even be more enjoyable to watch now that we're older, which is a rare thing.
