666 Live is Billy Talent's 2007 live CD/DVD album. It has three of the band's European performances from their past tour, which took them around the globe multiple times[1] over eighteen months in support of their latest studio album Billy Talent II.[2] The basic version includes footage of six songs each from the shows at London's Brixton Academy, Düsseldorf's Philips Halle and Germany's Rock Am Ring Festival (at the Nürburgring). A second disc has the audio portion of the entire Düsseldorf concert. The deluxe edition is a 2-DVD/CD that expands the shows on two DVDs. The album is produced by Pierre and Francois Lamoureux, who have worked with The Tragically Hip and The Who.[3]

The Deluxe edition also includes a hidden video on the disc which can be accessed on the very first menu when This Suffering is playing. On one of the cards a symbol turns yellow and you have to quickly press play because the menu is only short. The video shows Ian D'Sa doing his hair before a concert. Another bonus feature is photos of the band on and off stage. There are also videos in between concerts of Brixton, Düsseldorf and Nuremberg. They also talk about their former band Pezz and how they held shows. The Basic Version Contains just the Live CD.'
