Gary Numan will play in Preston Tuesday 1 July as a warm up for his appearance at Sonisphere.
The very first synthesizer electro superstar and Godfather of New Romantic music will feature alongside Iron Maiden, Metallica and the Prodigy at Knebworth Park in July.
Just returned from the US and his successful ‘Splinter’ tour, Numan has picked 53 Degrees for one of his handful of UK gigs in 2014.
Numan’s unique style connects with fans from the worlds of HipHop, Electro, Industrial, Indie and Metal, whilst he remains as focussed in pursuing his own singular vision.
His critically acclaimed new album ‘Splinter Songs From a Broken Mind)’ is available now on CD and vinyl, as well as digital download on Amazon and iTunes.
2014 marks the 35th anniversary of two other albums in Gary’s musical career, ‘Replicas’ and ‘The Pleasure Principle’. This year also marks the 30th anniversary of ‘Berserker’.
Still held in high regard by the music scene David Bowie said of him: ‘Gary Numan has written a couple of the finest things in British pop.’
Liam Howlett, from The Prodigy also said: ‘Gary is the only electronic artist I thought was cool when I was a kid. He represents this whole weird, abstract element of music.’
Numan first visited Preston back in September 1980 as part of his ‘Teletour ’80’.
