Pioneering British musician Gary Numan has been announced to return to New Zealand in May for one Auckland show. Last here in May of 2011 for an incredible outing at Auckland's ASB Theatre, one of our favourite shows of that year, he returns in support of new album Splinter (Songs from a Broken Mind). His 20th studio album all up, Splinter was released late last year and you can find a video from it below - here are the show details...

And the ever classic 'Cars'...


Press Release:

Gary Numan Splinter Australian and New Zealand Tour

Gary Numan is a truly unique artist. And he is back in black and ready to darken Australia and New Zealand once again!

Numan has influenced everyone from Trent Reznor to Prince to The Prodigy to Afrika Bambaataa to name a few.

Trent Reznor - "vitally important and a huge inspiration ... I see me doing what I learned from him "

Admiration comes from all corners of the music industry with David Bowie saying he has ‘has written a couple of the finest things in British pop’ while Marilyn Manson states that he ‘pioneered electronic dance music’ and Numan’s own contemporaries hold him in the highest regard with Devo stating that "The Pleasure Principle is so original and cool and ground breaking ... it still sounds great today" Industrial metallers, Fear Factory also paid homage with a brilliant cover of Cars that sees Numan make a cameo in the video and on the song itself.

Never one to let the past remain his legacy, Gary released his 22nd album Splinter at the end of 2013. Described by Filter Magazine as "mechanized, sci-fi mini-operas.. awesomely grandiose" it’s considered to be one of the best albums he has ever produced.

Gary Numan’s May tour will feature highlights from Splinter as well as a rich selection of material from his extensive back catalogue. Recent anthems like The Fall and A Prayer For The Unborn.

Plus the classics, Down In The Park, Metal, Are Friends Electric and of course, Cars – they’ll all be there, live and in living (dark) colour! And if you were lucky enough to catch him last time you will know just how epic those classics now sound.

Combine Gary Numan’s incredible collection of songs with his larger than life stage presence and you know you’re in for a memorable night!
