Devin Townsend has revealed his hugely popular character Ziltoid will return to Earth from the planet Ziltoidia 9 on April 13th next year to star in the ‘Ziltoid musical’ at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England.
Townsend first made the announcement via an update to his official Twitter account:
So hey! April 13, 2015… We’re going to do a ‘Ziltoid musical’ at the Royal Albert Hall! …indeeeed! 🙂

In a later update, Townsend was scarce on any specific details of the project, but did indicate that stage design was well underway:

“Many you may wonder why all the cool shows go to London? The simple answer is that shows with this sort of production require venues with a high capacity and there’s no other city in the world where we can sell out a thing like this. Hopefully in the near future, and with all your help, we can add more countries to the list of Hevy Devy loving nations so we can make more shows of this magnitude possible.”
Stay tuned for further updates.
