Gary Numan brings his electrifying show to 53 Degrees

Share |

'Godfather of electronic music' Gary Numan will be bringing his Splinter Tour to 53 Degrees, Preston this June.��

As a pioneer of EDM and industrial music, Gary Numan�s influence has been recognized by a diverse array of the world�s greatest artists � from Prince to Lady Gaga, Jack White to Kanye West; Beck to Queens Of The Stone Age, and The Foo Fighters to Nine Inch Nails.

Numan�s impact was crystallized some three decades ago with his now legendary performance of his worldwide hit �Cars� to an audience of 40 million people on the US TV institution that is Saturday Night Live � a performance that changed the sound of popular music forever, and which would continue to influence music throughout the 1980s and beyond, with tracks like 'Are Friends Electric' ensuring that chart pop would never be the same again.

While Numan�s unique, pioneering style continues to connect with fans from the worlds of EDM, Industrial, Hip-Hop, Metal, and Indie-rock, he remains as focussed as ever in pursuing his own singular vision. Latest album �Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind)� is evidence of this desire to never stand still. Utilizing new sounds and ideas whilst retaining the feel of a classic Numan record, the softly spoken Numan poses one of the most distinctive voices in music. His unique vocal style evokes a feeling of machinery and icy alienation whilst provoking strong emotions within the electronic noise of classic albums such as �The Pleasure Principle� and �Telekon� that connects with his loyal and ever-growing fan base: the self-proclaimed Numanoids.

With a striking stage set up, incredible video projections and, of course, jaw-dropping music, Gary Numan brings one of only a few headline dates this year to Preston, in what promises to be an electrifying show.
