Canadian metal icon Devin Townsend has just announced a 2019 Australian acoustic solo tour, an intimate event before he starts playing with a band again.
In support of his new album Empath, released back in March, Townsend is using this tour as a way to connect with his fans on a more personal level as a solo artist before jumping back in to other projects.
In a statement, Townsend revealed what this tour means to him.
“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,” he said.
“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.”
He’ll be taking on dates in Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. Check out all ticketing info, dates and venues below.
