New Road Report: Devin Townsend Group and The Ocean

Moving the monitors wasn't to keep him away—it was to allow him to get closer. Over the 90+ minutes that his band was on stage, Devin only kept his distance when singing. Otherwise he was as close enough to hug, striding up and down, leaning out into the crowd and choosing individuals to greet, pulling them out of their audience shell and into the moment with him: “Hi, how are you?”, “Guy with the hairy armpits, come on!”, “You! I've been waving at you all night, but you're just standing there. Are you having fun?”
