Gary Numan’s new album, Intruder, is out this Friday and is expected to have a similar impact as 2017’s Savage (Songs From A Broken World), which hit # 2 on the charts. Now Gary Numan can confirm details of his first European tour in support of the album, which begins in April 2022.
The tour opened with eighteen dates in the UK and Ireland and includes Gary Numan’s first show at the SSE Arena at Wembley since playing three sold-out farewell concerts at the venue in 1981. His return to the venue is also the biggest headline show he has ever played in the UK – a phenomenal and unusual feat for an artist whose career spans over 40 years.
Gary Numan commented, “To say I missed touring would be a colossal understatement. It’s the life I chose as a teenager so it was very difficult not to be able to travel the world. But now things are changing again and the next UK tour has been announced and I’m just as excited as I was when it all started for me a lifetime ago. More than that, in fact. I can’t wait to get back on stage, to hear the roar of the crowd, the deafening volume of the music, to be bathed in light and soak up those emotions. That’s what I’m here for. “
The news of the tour follows the recent announcement of the global live streaming event ‘Intruder: The Worldwide Concert Premiere’, which will be hosted on June 17th by leading on-demand live performance platform Stabal. The show will be the first time Gary Numan and his band perform several songs from ‘Intruder’ as well as a selection of songs from his impressive career.
