Coming in 2015: Devin Townsend’s Ziltoid… The Musical!!!


a ziltoid lineDevin Townsend’s alien creation, Ziltoid, really is going to conquer the world. In case a new double album, a radio show, and a television series don’t satisfy your Ziltoid fever (commonly known as “Ziltever”), Heavy Devy will be bringing a Ziltoid musical to London’s Royal Albert Hall on April 13, 2015. What, exactly, this event will entail hasn’t been announced yet, but if it’s anything like Townsend’s last one-time-only special event in London, The Retinal Circus, it’s going to be INSANE.

Those of us who weren’t lucky enough to be able to attend The Retinal Circus show were able to live stream it, and eventually, it was released on home video. Hopefully that will be a possibility this time, too, because the whole concept is just too damned intriguing to miss (also, because, seriously, is anything Devin does not worth checking out?).

Tickets will be available “soon.” We will, of course, share more details as we get ’em. In the meantime, here’s a cool, Ziltoid the Television Series-related tweet from Mr. Townsend himself…
