An Evening with Devin Townsend
The name Devin Townsend is one of the most revolutionary ones in the entire music industry. Mostly because of his unique personality and his musical expertise of course.
He is coming to Singapore for his first ever performance at the Gateway Theatre, Black Box. He is set to perform a big selection of his notable tracks from throughout his career. And what’s even more interesting is that he will be conducting a Q&A session as well, where his fans can ask him questions about his life and career and his latest album “Empath”. So it’s basically a chance for you to watch him perform and also interact with him directly. Apparently, he wanted to make a connection with the people that allow him to do his work and inspire him. That’s why he was very particular about stepping back in music for a bit and re-emerging with an interactive stage.
