Flanked by the Orchestra of Plovdiv State Opera at the Ancient Roman Theatre in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, Devin Townsend Project celebrated the 20th anniversary of the landmark Ocean Machine album by playing the entire album alongside a set of fan-requested tracks.
The concert was filmed on September 22, 2017, and fans will finally get a chance to own the special show when it is released on July 6, 2018 as ‘Ocean Machine – Live at the Ancient Roman Theatre Plovdiv’.
‘Ocean Machine – Live at the Ancient Roman Theatre Plovdiv’ will be packaged as a special edition 3CD/2DVD/Blu-Ray artbook (with liner notes from Devin and a special documentary dubbed ‘Reflecting The Chaos’ on the second DVD & Blu-Ray), Special Edition 3CD/DVD Digipak, standalone Blu-Ray and as digital audio download.
About the special release, Townsend said, “I am very proud of this release and it represents a culmination of many years of material. The concert actually is in two parts, with Ocean Machine being the second. It was a fantastic night and an unforgettable experience with the die-hards travelling from all around the world to be there with us.”
