Devin Townsend - To Perform A Special Show Next October


Canadian progressive metal mastermind Devin Townsend has announced a special show, The Retinal Circus, for October 27th, 2012, at the Roundhouse in London.

Here's what Devin has to say about the show: "The show is being called "The Retinal Circus", (named after an old Vancouver club in the 60's, 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."

The Retinal Circus show will be recorded for a DVD release. You can grab the tickets at this location.

I have a certain urge to get a suitcase of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas proportions and attend this.

"We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.
Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can."

I think some screamers and laughers are in order.
