Gary Numan celebrates classic albums with three night residency at London's ForumIndustrial/new wave artist Gary Numan has announced that he will be taking on a three night residency at The Forum in London, UK in October. During his residency, he will be performing three of his classic albums – Replicas, The Pleasure Principle, and Telekon – on October 21, 22, and 23, respectively. “Having spent most of the last two years touring Splinter,” states Numan, “and with another hectic touring schedule being planned for the release of the new album next year, 2015 seems an ideal time to revisit the three albums that changed my life.” He goes on to say, “These three albums are now considered classics and being able to play each one in its entirety over three nights in London will be very special for me.”
In addition, Numan will also perform at the Machester Academy in honor of the venue’s 25th Anniversary celebrations on October 24. Of this performance, Numan says, “I have some songs planned for that I don’t think I’ve ever played live before. I very rarely look back at past glories, but with these shows, I intend to not only look back, but to celebrate those early days.”
Tickets for these events can be purchased via the venues’ websites.
Splinter was Numan’s twentieth studio album, released in 2013 to critical and commercial acclaim, making the #2 spot on ReGen‘s Top 20 Albums of 2013. Subsequently in 2014, Numan produced with his longtime collaborator Ade Fenton a soundtrack album to John Bergin’s animated featured From Inside.
