Following the success of his sold-out London residence last October, eighties star Gary Numan is back with a September UK tour which will see him playing a set compromising of material from his albums Replicas, The Pleasure Principle and Teleken.
And he will be playing at The Foundry in Sheffield and Rock City in Nottingham as part of the tour.
Following on from the success of his top 20 album, Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind), and accompanying two-year Splinter world tour – including sell-out UK shows – electronic and industrial music pioneer Gary Numan returns to the UK to celebrate his classic albums Replicas, The Pleasure Principle and Telekon
Gary commented: “Having spent most of the last couple of years touring Splinter, with the release of the new album released later this year, 2016 seems an ideal time to revisit the three albums that changed my life.
“These three albums are now considered classics and playing tracks from each one in September, will be very special for me.
“I very rarely look back at past glories, but, with these shows, I intend to not only look back, but to celebrate those early days.
“Without those songs and experiences I wouldn’t be here today.
“Splinter was widely considered to be one of the best, if not the best album I’ve ever made.
“With that achievement I’ve finally learned to be proud of my history, and that’s what these shows are all about.”
Numan’s influence has been recognised by a diverse array of the world’s greatest artists, from Prince to Lady Gaga, Jack White to Kanye West, Beck to Queens Of The Stone Age, and The Foo Fighters to Nine Inch Nails.
Many of these artists have collaborated with Numan and covered or sampled his work.
