Devin Townsend's The Retinal Circus, October 27th, 2012

With last week's more than highly successful the DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT album shows in London done and over, it's time for the Canadian musician/producer to focus on bigger things. Much bigger things… In fact, the biggest show he's ever done.

Commented Devin: "This last week was probably THE defining moment in my life, let alone my career, in many ways.

"I've had some intense gigs and experiences in music before, but all pale in comparison to the four sold-out shows in London where we played all four DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT records, with four different bands, night after night. Everyone worked incredibly hard, and each of us gave 100% to pull it off, bands, players, management, label, and audience. It was awesome!

"So here's the next big gig: Next October 27th, at the amazing Roundhouse in London, We're putting on the most definitive 'Devin' show to date. A culmination of my ENTIRE career with a star lineup and full supporting cast.

"The show is being called 'The Retinal Circus', (named after an old Vancouver club in the '60s, famous for psychedelic rock shows) and will be more than just a musical performance… there will be an art exhibition, actors, Ziltoid, stilt walkers, fire breathers… you name it.

"My goal has always been to make SHOWS, and this is the first opportunity I have been given to do a high-end production that puts it all together! It's the closest Saturday to Halloween, and the goal is to make something amazing that we can all enjoy… details to come… psychedelic!

"My career has been full of amazing musicians, and there will be plenty of them present at this show, and I'll be playing music that has never been attempted due to the size of the songs and the need for certain things. It will be recorded for a DVD, of course, and it's going to be a pretty intense experience… We have a year to make it perfect, so I just wanted to give you some hints! The VIP package will be available with special goodies among other exclusive things.

"Anyways, I'm back to work here…

"I hope to see you there. I'm beyond excited to have this opportunity; we're not taking it lightly!"

General-admission tickets will go on sale tomorrow (Friday, November 18) via the HevyDevy.com web site, where also 50 very exclusive VIP tickets will be made available. The content for these VIP packages may change slightly leading up to the date but confirmed for now are:

* Meet-and-greet with the full band
- Early entry to the show to get the best seats (might change to reserved seating; to be confirmed)
* Tour of the venue showing the production and everything else that goes with it.
* Have your picture taken with Devin and/or band by a professional photographer.
* High-quality Devin Townsend bag containing:
* VIP laminate and lanyard
* Exclusive VIP t-shirt
* Exclusive VIP tour poster printed on canvas
* Additional goodies confirmed though exact specs to be confirmed



Time to get those visas and start saving up kiddies.

Reminds me of Slappy from Goosebumps, who I was scared of when I was little. Which is awesome.

Hopefully since so much effort is going into this show, it'll turn into a tour

It'd be cool if he brought it to like Radio City Music Hall at least.

Just to clear things up the black slappy from the book covers didn't scare me. It was the white one from the tv show that scared the fuck out of me.

Me too. My friends would always be douchebags when I was 7 or 8 and just hold the book cover in front of my face and it scared the shit out of me. White Slappy I don't recall as vividly, but I know it also scared the shit out of me.
