Devin describes the Retinal Circus as:

"A retrospective of my career in music to date, with the central theme being a metaphor of how life and the adventures therein are a 'circus' of sorts. The show involves a cast of characters and guests that support this theme through carnival type performances.

"A story about how a troubled young man dreams of fantastic scenarios, (illustrated through the music of my back catalogue), which ultimately crests in the characters realization that life is all about the relationships we have with each other. This is the first opportunity I have been given to make theatrical representations of my music."

The three hour plus performance will include:

- A retrospective of Devin Townsend's entire career
- Full choir and theatrical cast
- Visual and aural enhancements unlike any show Devin has done to date
- Special guests
- Circus and carnival performances and cast

Devin Townsend 'The Retinal Circus' will take place on 27th October at Camden's Roundhouse venue.
