Anyone that’s seen Devin Townsend live knows that its an experience and a half. In between his stream of conscience thoughts, the incredible musicianship, and overall positive fun vibe, it’s no surprise he’s built up an army of fanatical fans. His most recent tour was captured on video for a forthcoming DVD/Blu-ray, Ziltoid: Live At the Royal Albert Hall. The forthcoming set features a full album performance of the Dark Matters album from last year’s Z2 double album, as well as fan-requested songs. One of the highlights of the album, “March of the Poozers,” has debuted via Revolver. What you might have missed if you didn’t go the Royal Albert show was dancing Poozers and an actual choir backing him up. Devin doesn’t halfass anything. Here’s what Townsend says about the show:
“The show at The Royal Albert Hall was a great experience. To be able to make artistic expression rooted in creativity and then to be able to articulate it in these sorts of ways, at this sort of venue, was pretty awesome. The whole thing was quite a challenge, but ultimately it worked and we were all very satisfied with it. I completely appreciate the support that has allowed this to happen from the audience, and I thank my team and Inside Out Records for busting ass to make this DVD a reality. I think if you enjoy what I do, you’ll really dig it. Thank you so much for the opportunity!”
You’ll be able to pick up Devin Townsend Presents: Ziltoid Live at the Royal Albert Hall on November 13 on Inside Out.
