Gary Numan announces major 2022 European tour, including Glasgow show.


merging to a wealth of critical acclaim, Gary Numans new album Intruder is out this Friday, and looks set to make a similar impact to 2017s Savage (Songs From A Broken World) which entered the charts at #2. Now Gary Numan can confirm details of his first European tour in support of the album, which commences in April 2022.

Opening with eighteen-dates in the UK and Ireland, the tour includes Gary Numans first show at The SSE Arena, Wembley since he played three sold-out farewell concerts at the venue back in 1981. His return to the venue also represents the joint largest headline show that he has ever played in the UK - a phenomenal and unusual achievement for an artist whose career spans over 40 years.

Fans who order or pre-order Intruder here before Wednesday, May 26th can access a pre-sale for the tour, which opens at 9.30am BST / 10.30am CET that same day. Remaining tickets will then go on general sale here from 9.30am BST / 10:30am CET on Friday, May 28th.

Gary Numan commented, "To say Ive missed touring would be a colossal understatement. Its the life I chose when I was a teenager so not being able to tour the world has been very difficult. But now things are changing once again and the next UK tour has been announced and I am as excited as I was when all this started for me a lifetime ago. More so in fact. I cant wait to walk out onto a stage again, to hear the roar of the crowd, the ear shattering volume of the music, to be bathed in light and soak up that emotion. Its what Im here for."

News of the tour follows the recent announcement of the global streaming live event Intruder: The Worldwide Concert Premiere, which will be hosted by the leading on-demand live performance platform Stabal on June 17th. The show will see Gary Numan and his band perform several songs from Intruder for the first time as well as a selection of songs from his impressive career. Tickets are available here.
