Electronic music pioneer, revered songwriter and renowned musician, Gary Numan will be embarking on a special celebration marking the 45th anniversary of his landmark albums, 

The Pleasure Principleand Replicas with a Belfast headline show announced for 17th May 2024. Due to phenomenal demand, Gary has announced a series of extra dates across the UK including second London and third Manchester dates plus new shows in Liverpool and Leeds. Venue upgrades have also been confirmed in Glasgow and Newcastle.Released in 1979, 

The Pleasure Principle and Replicasstand as cornerstones of the electronic music genre, fusing synth-driven soundscapes with dark, introspective lyrics which has transcended generations. These albums catapulted Numan to international stardom, establishing him as a visionary artist and influencing countless musicians who followed including the likes of Prince, Nine Inch Nails, and more. 

Spanning across 13 cities including a hometown London show at Camden’s Roundhouse, the tour promises a potent blend of tracks from both albums including the era-defining “Cars”, “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?”, “Down In the Park” and “Metal.”Numan remains a vital force in music. In 2017 he received the prestigious Inspiration Award at the Ivor Novellos plus a wealth of acclaim in support of his #2 album Intruder and his remarkable autobiography (R)EVOLUTION, further solidifying his status as a true visionary.His live performances are recognised for their energy and raw emotion.

His acoustic tour last year gave fans a unique glimpse at a different take on his vast repertoire but now 2024 sees Gary firmly back with his full show to commemorate the momentous anniversary of The Pleasure Principle and Replicas.
