    Unfortunately, it looks like this band might not make the North American tour.

    He's coming to the Paradise club in Boston (my fave concert venue, these days), and
    i believe it already sold out.

    This guy i work with was losing his shit over this:

    It kind of sucks, and the rumblings have already started, because he is selling out shows in North America based on the assumption that the full band he had in Europe will be playing in the states, and that was Devin's plan, but it looks like it isn't going to happen now.

    This is from Samantha Preis, one of the background singers:

    Originally, the 10-piece band was scheduled to continue performing on the North American tour in February and March. However, due to budgetary restrictions, we will sadly no longer be doing this, and Devin will likely be playing the tour solo or with a trio. (We found out the last day of the tour which made leaving each other even harder.) The entire crew totaled about 30 people with 10 people in the band itself, performing 22 shows in 17 countries in just 1 month (a massive production). I can say my life has been truly changed by these incredible individuals who became my family over the past 6 weeks of touring and rehearsals. The end of the tour saw many tears as we boarded our separate planes. We hope to all be together again in the next year playing music again.
    My advice for anyone wanting to see him live, do it soon. He may not tour the States much more in the future. It just isn't as profitable as overseas.

    My colleague ended up grabbing two tickets from the box office, i believe.
    Always double check or talk to an actual person.

    I'm not sure if he realizes it will be a scaled down version.

    I don't understand why Devin doesn't take the full band and do slightly larger venues.
    like House of Blues?

    The Paradise is killer, but fairly intimate.

    Wolf Alice played there, and a lot of folks couldn't get in.

    BabyMetal did the House of Blues out here, and i feel like Devin could attract the
    same, larger cult audience.

    He's just not that big here. There was one tour about 10 years ago when he had to sell some of his equipment to pay for plane tickets to get the band home. He doesn't sell out a lot of the small clubs he plays, and the bigger venues won't invite someone to play there if ticket sales aren't guaranteed. A lot of bands offer a "VIP" experience now, and that is why. It's a way of assuring the venues make money, even if the shows don't sell well.

    Devin has tried for 20 plus years to build an audience here and in Canada, but it just hasn't paid off.

    Interesting.

    Judging by my colleagues reaction, i assumed he had this large cult following.
    Then i saw that tickets had sold out fast.

    Isn't he Canadian, as well?

    I thought he was, i could be wrong.

    He is Canadian, and oddly enough, Canada is his weakest following.

    His popularity has peaked and leveled off in the states, so if he does things less ambitiously he can headline clubs and sell them out, but that's usually determined by the preceding Euro tours where he has a much larger following. This tour sold well overseas, but the expenses were a lot more than were expected.

    Nothing official has been announced, so Devin may pull a rabbit out of his ass. Nothing will be announced until after the holidays, I'm sure. Hopefully he's able to piece together a band and make it happen as planned.
