Devin Townsend has been hosting live concerts in his home studio this month and last Saturdays event sold 3,420 tickets raising a staggering £65,000 for the NHS in the UK.
For each show Devin has put together an impressive 4-camera rig, controlled using nothing more than an Xbox controller.
The previous show in aid of Vancouver’s General Hospital sold close to 2000 tickets and raised nearly $50,000.
The third event, this Saturday 25 April, will be in support of hotspot hospitals in New York City.
Shows last around 50 minutes, with different setlists each time. The top donors for each show receive signed merchandise from Omerch, album goodies from InsideOut as well as several high-end products from a number of Devin’s gear companies such as Mooer, Fractal, Toontrack, Dunlop and Fishman to name a few.
All ticket buyers will also receive a remixed version of the show’s audio recording.
