MANCHESTER ACADEMY: 25 YEARS IS JUST THE INTRO…

GARY NUMAN RETURNS TO MANCHESTER ACADEMY

FOR SPECIAL 25th ANNIVERSARY SHOW

SATURDAY 24th OCTOBER 2015

Retuning to the Manchester Academy for an exclusive 25th Anniversary show-stopper, we are overwhelmed to announce that synth pioneer and industrial mastermind: GARY NUMAN will bring his phenomenal live show to the venue for the celebrations.
Following on from his triumphant Splinter World Tour performance at the Manchester Academy, Numan will be back to dazzle audiences at the venue with an all new show taking place on Saturday 24th October 2015. With over 10 headline shows to his name in the past 16 years alone at Manchester Academy, Numan has forged a strong affinity with the venue and it’s audiences, with this unique show shaping up to be another one to remember.
As with the other shows announced for the Academy’s year long series of commemorative concerts, the night promises to feature a number of surprises and special announcements that will guarantee this Anniversary show will be like no other. Further information will follow in due course.
The esteemed innovator behind smash hits including ‘Cars’, ‘Are Friends Electric?’, ‘Music for Chameleons’ and countless others from his extensive back catalogue has been pushing boundaries in electronic and industrial music for nearly 40 years and is showing no intention of stopping soon.
Since 1977, classic albums such as ‘Replicas’, ‘The Pleasure Principle’ and ‘Telekon’ have seen the polymath’s musical output connect time and time again with a loyal and ever-growing fan base of self-proclaimed ‘Numanoids’.

 

In 2013, Numan released ‘Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind)’, which announced his return to the UK Top 20 Albums Chart and Billboard 200 for the first time in over 30 years. The subsequent Splinter World Tour took in more countries and dates than any Numan tour since 1981 and ended with his biggest headline show in over 30 years at the legendary Hammersmith Apollo in London.

Gary Numan will play Manchester Academy as part of unique year-long series of 25th Anniversary shows celebrating the iconic venue. Beginning on Saturday 10th October 2015,the shows will continue through to 2016. Full list of shows announced so far are included below.
