    went to the tour kickoff show in Minneapolis on Monday. Devin was great as always but going in I had no idea he was opening for Gojira. He didn't have all the bells and whistles he typically has on stage - video screens, etc. The performance was great and Devin was in good spirits!

    I saw SYL back at the 2003 Milwaukee metal fest, it was one of my most memorable shows! Such a huge and epic experience. DTP playing in Portland on the 21st. It gon' be zoppity!

    thats kind of disappointing to hear. but i know he will throw a great show, regardless of if he is headlining or opening.

    how long was the set?
    and do you remember any songs?

    Liberation
    Kingdom
    Planet of the Apes
    Truth
    War
    Lucky Animals - which Devin had everyone in the crowd doing jazz hands during the "and we're lucky" part :lol:

    Not a bad setlist, I'm still hoping beyond hope that Devin plays Sumeria and Gojira does Blood and Salt.

    pretty much the same set list from Epic Kings and Idols tour.

    Thankfully no Baby Song.

    I'm a sucker for Baby Song, but I don't think it'd work well live. I know he played it a few times last tour, and for the Retinal Circus..

    I was at the retinal, and I must say, baby song was a pleasant surprise that worked out very well live :) Maybe it was due to all the shit going on around it though, but I think it'd work out in a normal setting as well.

    Got my tickets for the St. Pete show, my first time seeing Devin, could not be more pumped. Gojira is one hell of a bonus too.

    Saw him last night in Seattle. I got a drumstick and pick from em! :hbang:

    Anywho, Devin put on probably the best live show I have ever seen in my entire life. I lost it when he said "I have the smallest penis of any man in this room!" Fucking hilarious. The performance sounded great, and whatever the fuck was playing on the projection screen before the show was great. Funniest shit I've seen in awhile. So random. Talked to him for a bit and he seemed like a really nice guy, gave my girlfriend a hug. :lol:
    I am now a fan.

    I drove a friend and my girl friend home yesterday and had epicloud playing. My friend said it sounded cool. :idea: He plays drums and use to play guitar so maybe some proggesiveish alt band could come from that.

    I know this information is somewhere in this 147 page thread... but I'm going to ask anyway. :lol:

    Can someone point me to where I can get the Ghost 2 tracks?

    I got a download code thingy with my Deconstruction cd and the URL points me to something else DT related, but there is no mention on the page of where to d/l the tracks. I gather it has been too long since the album was released and the link has been pulled.

    This is the url provided: http://insideoutmusic/specials/dtp

    That'll teach me to keep up with the new releases.

    Devin Townsend is surely one of the most thrilling showmen, as far as live shows go. I saw him live for the first time at the 2010 Tuska festival playing his exclusive Ziltoid the Omniscient gig. It was easily the best gig I've been to as of yet - though I've seen him four times after that and all of the shows were up there. Especially the ones with Anneke on board.

    At the last show Devin threw his last pick at the end of the final song and it hit me straight in my face. I don't know if I should be proud or sad that it was one of the highlights of my life.

    Super psyched to see Dev tomorrow. Totally worth the four hour drive.

    If you haven't seen this yet - here's a cool video of Devin talking about his Framus guitars. Enjoy!

    I SHOULD be watching Devin Townsend in Atlanta RIGHT NOW, but instead, the car's transmission went out. I want to die.
