Last year Devin Townsend celebrated his 20 years of musical career with a topnotch show at the Camden Roadhouse in London, England. The show was composed by all sort of artistic acts from a gospel chorus, fire breathers, circus performers, and even a giant green vagina. The special guess musicians ranked from Steve Vai (who served as narrator during the show), Anneke Van Giersbergen, and even Strapping Young Lad‘s guitarist Jed Simon.
The whole show was recorded, and it will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray this upcoming September 29 in Europe and October 30th in the US. Retinal Circus is now available to pre-order from the official Devin Townsend store. The deluxe Die Hard box set includes an exclusive signed litho print and limited to 500 copies only and won’t be available anywhere else. There is also a Limited Edition version, Blu-Ray, DVD and CD. Also, with each variation there is an option to purchase one of the official event shirts from the show.
The complete list of formats is below:
– Standard 2-Disc DVD
– Standard 1-Disc Blu-Ray
– Standard 2-CD Audio
– Special Edition 2-DVD/1-Blu Ray/2-CD Box Set
– Diehard Deluxe Fan Box incl. 2-DVD/1-Blu Ray/2-CD
