I flew up to the Numan Gig from Wellington last Saturday.From what I can tell the show was sold out by stage time.One word.AWESOME.Stunning show.The Pleasure Principal album had a more 2011 edge to it.Not like it was released 30 years back or so.The second set was incredible.The energy in the building was pulpable.Numan was having fun,he was feeding of the great vibe from the audience.Great sound,great light show.The later music these days has a more industrial sound.Huge drums,big guitar riffs mixed with the synths.
Numan still has that futuristic sound happening here.Brilliant show.
