Devin Townsend Project -- Kingston, Ontario -- December 13th, 2011

This is and will be one of (if not THE) most unique and unexpected setlists Devin Townsend has performed. The venue was too small for the band's equipment, so instead of packing up and cancelling he decided to do a special Acoustic ONLY set this night, comprised of both requests and songs Devin himself picked for the night.

My requested song was Love? and he performed it. Videos can be found at www.youtube.com/user/villithorne


*Note - Devin Townsend himself said he hasn't played Notes from Africa live since 2006.


Setlist:
(Entirely Acoustic)
1.Life
2.Coast
3.Terminal
4.Solar Winds
5.Sister
6.Juular
7.Love? (Strapping Young Lad)
8.Deadhead
9.Sunday Afternoon
10.Vampira
11.Disruptr
12.Notes from Africa
13.Funeral (Ocean Machine)
14.In-Ah!
15.Earth Day
16.Hyperdrive!
17.Bad Devil
18.Ghost
19.Quiet Riot

Actually I thought it was a typo, in the video he does say 2002. Weird, good catch.

Not a problem man. I'm jealous you got to see Dev acoustically. Although I did see the DTP 3 times this year, so I can't complain at all.

How the fuck is a venue too small for equipment?

Basically the stage can barely fit 3 people across comfortably, and in the back there is a small higher platform for the drums. This venue is usually used for small local bands, why the fuck they booked DTP at this venue I don't know, we had other venues better suited for him. Anyway, their monster drums wouldn't fit on the designated stage area for them, and the tons of other equipment he uses would've made the stage way too small and cramped.

You don't go to enough places. It's a bigger issue then one would think.

This would have been amazing, I am jealous! Sucks about the equipment, but it does happen, quite a lot too, all comes down to the venues available on the night, promoters involved and fees required for which venue gets used, Devin got the short straw tonight, but from what I've heard he has seen much worse things go wrong.

Doing songs from Ghost for an acoustic show is pretty cool. I can't imagine Juular acoustic.
