Devin Townsend for stripped-down UK tour

Devin Townsend will return to the UK in October for a run of stripped-down shows, he’s announced.

He’ll deliver seven An Evening With Devin Townsend events, featuring acoustic performances, fan requests and spoken-word sections.

Townsend won a Juno award in his native Canada for his Z2 album earlier this year. He recently revealed he was writing a symphony, explaining: “I want to have something that goes between the extremes of beautiful to total chaos, like hellish apocalypse. I’d like to have a point to it that isn’t a story – to do with human things, emotions that I currently struggle with because I don’t find myself emotionally very intelligent.”

Tickets go on sale on September 9 (Wednesday).

Oct 08: Brighton All Saints Church

Devin Townsend’s salary surprise

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history. He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
