View Full Version : The Devin Townsend Project -- Vancouver, British Columbia -- October 8th, 2010

Not the most familiar with Devin's entire catalogue, but went anyways because I admire his playing/production and knew it would be a great show.

First up was some local band, can't remember their name. Never seen a more bored crowd in my entire life. Sounded like an Alice In Chains cover band meets Nickelback meets the chemicals that produce the feeling of irritation in one's brain. They closed their set with a heavy rendition of "Another Brick In The Wall pt. II".

Second was the UK's TesseracT. I had never heard of them until recently, and never really listened to their material until last night. Wow. These guys had the precision of a surgeon, but managed to keep up an excellent stage presence and a fun atmosphere. They really looked glad to be there. The crowd was nuts for them. Moshing everywhere, headbanging, etc. Vancouver is usually pretty great for reacting to good music (no matter how unknown it is prior to the show) but this definitely stood out to me. These guys will be headlining pretty soon.

And finally, the mighty Dev. Really sorry I can't provide you guys with a full setlist, but he did play from about 10:50 till 12:30.

I know for sure he played the following:

By Your Command
Life (He made tribute to ICP with the "Fuckin' magnets, how do they work?" line about halfway through :lol: )
Bad Devil
Color Your World
The Greys
Deep Peace

I'm definitely missing a lot. It flowed pretty well and he didn't announce any titles. If you post a song or two that you really want to know about, I'm sure I can give it a listen and tell you if I remember hearing it or not. 'Funeral' wasn't played though. Not that I was expecting it, but it is my favourite Devin song. Great show!

Thanks for the setlist, looking forward to seeing him next month. Did he play Slow Me Down or Canada? Hoping to hear those live.

Parts of Slow Me Down sound familiar but I can't say 100% whether or not it was played. Canada wasn't sadly.

Just confirmed "Colour Your World" though.

Don't know if this is useful to anyone, but during some heavy-ish riff, Devin mentioned "This is the fourth fucking time I've ripped off Mission Impossible in my catalogue.. But the first time tonight, so DIG IT SUCKERS." Great showmanship =P.

edit: Been looking at past setlists on setlist.fm and looking up the songs in hopes of verifying. Confirmed "Kingdom". Still missing quite a bit though. Hope another forumite can go to a show and update me, I'd like to know the rest of the set for myself as well.

Do you know any of the other ones I'm missing? I didn't know the titles of much of the material after the encore break. Great show though. Where were you?

Nice, this should be good.
Are you familiar with Ziltoid and are sure that he didn't play more from it?

Closing with Deep Peace is amazing. Did he play Numbered! or Ih Ah!? I've seen bootlegs with him playing those songs. How 'bout Earth Day?

To be honest I was never a big fan of Ziltoid and I think he's playing too much of it lol. But it's the newest 'heavy' album and he never toured for it so I can see why.

10-10-2010, 12:00 PM
No "Numbered!" or "Ih-Ah!". Two songs I would've loved to see as well. Especially Ih-Ah! And even though I'm pretty sure we're in the minority about Ziltoid, I agree with you. Looking forward to the tour for Deconstruction/Ghost.
