Progressive rock and metal genius Devin Townsend is bringing his all-acoustic ‘An Evening With’ tour to Australia in September! The show will feature songs across his entire discography in an intimate and ambient setting, along with Q&A sessions where fans will be able to ask the globally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist questions about his career and new album Empath.
This will prove to be a unique & special experience for all in attendance.
He comments: Hello everyone, Devin here. I have been busy making my newest recording, EMPATH over the past year. It has been a complicated and enlightening experience in that I have gone back to my roots in terms of what my motivations are for making music, in hopes that I am able to move forward as a musician being as true as I possibly can to my motivations. The result is an album that I am exceptionally proud of, one that is uncompromised and diverse in ways that accurately represent where I’m at now at the age of 46.
Before I tour with a band again, I wanted to have the opportunity to play for you, and meet up with the people who not only have made my work possible, but inspire me to continue. In a world of computers and social media, to be stripped of all the bells and whistles is a very important step for my reintroduction to the live concert world. I truly hope you’ll join me and I look forward to being the most honest I can be with you at these special shows.
See you at the shows.
