Devin Townsend Raised Over $45,000 With First COVID-19 Relief Benefit Concert


Devin Townsend commenced a series of COVID-19 relief benefit livestreamed performances this past weekend. That first performance was held on April 18th and you can watch it below. Proceeds from this performance have been earmarked for the Vancouver General Hospital. According to Townsend, this first concert generated over $45,000 USD. He commented of that on April 19th:

“Here’s the stream from the first concert yesterday… (for some reason, the quality is blurry, I’ll try to solve that) The concert has appeared online (as expected) so I figured I may as well just post a decent quality one here, but ALL proceeds are for frontline workers, so I hope you understand. I think we’re looking at a substantial amount of revenue raised for the hospital foundation on this one (edit: over 45.000 USD!!!), so cheers to you all.

The next one is this coming Saturday, April 25th, and all benefits from that one will go to the National Health Services in the UK, and it will be a different setlist. There are prizes for both top donations as well as random draws from some amazing gear companies (Fractal, Toontrack, Neural, Line6, KSR, Dunlop, Mooer, D’addario, Fishman etc) and each ‘ticket’ gets a link to a download to the audio.”

Further performances are planned, they include:

04/25: 12pm PDT/3pm EDT (benefiting the UK’s NHS)
05/02: 12pm PDT/3pm EDT (benefiting the New York Hospital)

You can buy tickets to watch those performances as they happen and help out here.
