New Wave singer Gary Numan has announced a huge UK tour which will be kicking off in Norwich this spring. 

The synth-pop pioneer has chosen to begin his tour at the UEA LCR on May 19 as he celebrates the 45th anniversary of albums The Pleasure Principle and Replicas.

The albums which were Numan’s debut solo album and final album with band Tubeway Army, respectively, both reached the top of the UK charts when they were released in 1979.

The Pleasure Principle features Numan’s famous first solo record Cars, which also shot to number one upon its release, as well as songs such as Metal and Complex. 

Numan has performed at the LCR several times in the past, with his last visit in 2022 when he toured with his most recent album Intruder. 

The tour comes ahead of a big year of music for the LCR which will see acts such as Declan McKenna, The Hives and The Last Dinner Party, who won BBC Radio 1’s Sound of 2024, grace the stage. 

Tickets will go on general sale at 9am on February 23.
