According to Devin Townsend's official Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/dvntownsend) he along with his Project is doing a month long European tour in March 2011. No actual dates were published yet, but this is the deal at the moment in all its shortness:

"Euro tour will take us to Glasgow, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Czech, As well as many of the usual places. Starts March 3rd, ends March 31!"

When dates are published I'll update them here.

The Devin Townsend Project Announces European Tour 2011

After announcing 6 UK dates for coming March 2011 already, The Devin Townsend Project now announces a full blown European tour which will see the band playing 25 shows in 13 different countries. Mr Townsend, being hard at work to put the final touches to the upcoming albums ´Ghost´ and ´Deconstruction´ (both tentatively scheduled for a May release), commented:

“After another busy, busy, year, we have set ourselves up for an even busier one… and to be honest, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I have just recently finished Ghost (record 4, the mellow one) and am currently up to my balls in Deconstruction (record 3, the heavy one… for which we are using the Prague Symphony Orchestra to make more ridiculous than it really needs to be :) and I’ve yet to get my goddamn garage cleaned, so yeah… things are busy. I love it.

So I’d like to announce a European tour… it will be the first tour of many we are doing in 2011 and it starts March 3rd in the UK. It hits a bunch of spots in Europe, including some places I’ve never played but have always wanted to. I’m really, really, excited to play again, and we will bring new music as well as some special acoustic performances. The people who support it have been so gracious that it’s a real pleasure to announce this. See you next year guys! I’ll bring my gnarliest teeth and lumpiest head!”

The band is set to perform a mixture of tracks from all four DTP albums and the Dutch and Finns will get a real treat as long time friend and main guest vocalist on 2009´s ´Addicted´ record, Anneke van Giersbergen (The Gathering) will be joining the band on the last four dates of the tour to share vocal duties with Devin.

Tickets will go on sale coming Friday, December 10th.

Saw him in November...great show. If he brings in Anneke (there are some youtube of such) it would be orgasmic. Sounds like he may be sneaking a little of Ghost and Decon in.
Current Listening:

Heater valve kicking on.
Snotty noses being blown.
Griping.
Maybe cookies coming out of the oven???

C is for cookie, and it is good enough for me.

Set list???

I'd read you guys were getting Earth Day which we didn't in the US in the fall.

Overall I think most of the set is the same. 

But Dev rules live.
Current Listening:

Heater valve kicking on.
Snotty noses being blown.
Griping.
Maybe cookies coming out of the oven???

C is for cookie, and it is good enough for me.

Just in case: his concert will take place in the Paris Extreme Fest (Elysée Montmartre). There will be nearly a dozen of other metal bands such as Mekong Delta, Obituary or Dagoba to name the most famous ones.

Here's the setlist from the Gothenburg show, as reported by setlist.fm. I'll be seeing them later this month in Helsinki, and I'm extremely happy to see Earth Day added to the set.

Saw him Aarhus, Denmark.
It was amazing. He is a brilliant, and very "down-to-earth" entertainer. Really good contact and interaction with the audience.
His music is orgasmic!

Devin Townsend won't play in Paris this month - the Elysee-Montmartre had burned and the Paris Extreme Fest is cancelled.

Yeah. But I wasn't impressed. 
The sound was to "clean" because the drummer was playing an electric kit.
