Devin Townsend is making the most of these quarantine times and has teamed up with StageIT to perform 3 online benefit concerts with all proceeds going to various charities. The first concert was this past Saturday (April 18th) and Devin was able to raise $45,000 for the Vancouver Hospital foundation. The frontman decided to have fun with with these shows and give out prizes to the top donors, which includes products from Fractal, Toontrack, Line6 and many more. Devin commented on the experience and mentioned how is he looking forward to the next two shows.
Here’s the stream from the first concert yesterday… (for some reason, the quality is blurry, I’ll try to solve that) The concert has appeared online (as expected) so I figured I may as well just post a decent quality one here, but ALL proceeds are for frontline workers, so I hope you understand. I think we’re looking at a substantial amount of revenue raised for the hospital foundation on this one (edit: over 45.000 USD!!!), so cheers to you all. The next one is this coming Saturday, April 25th, and all benefits from that one will go to the National Health Services in the UK, and it will be a different setlist. There are prizes for both top donations as well as random draws from some amazing gear companies (Fractal, Toontrack, Neural, Line6, KSR, Dunlop, Mooer, D’addario, Fishman etc) and each ‘ticket’ gets a link to a download to the audio.
You can view the setlist below, as well as the actual concert!
The next concert will be held April 24th and the following show on May 2nd. Grab your tickets here!
