Gary Numan Live At The Hammer Smith Eventim Apollo November 28th 2014

Gary Numan is pleased to announce an exclusive show for 2014 at The Hammersmith Eventim Apollo.
 
The date follows in the wake of Gary's fantastic 2013 - a year which culminated in critical acclaim and a return to the UK Top 20 albums chart after 30 years for his album 'Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind)', plus a rapturous response to his sold-out national headline tour.
 
This triumphant live return to London also has special historical significance for Gary, as he released his first (and now classic) full-length live album 'The Touring Princple 1979' (which was  recorded at a sold out Hammersmith Apollo) 35 years ago this year.
 
2014 also marks the 35th anniversary of the release of 'The Pleasure Principle', plus the gig will be Gary's biggest London headline show in over 20 years, so fans can expect a celebratory show, which promises to reach an all time incendiary and inspired high.
 
2014 will no doubt see Gary's star continue to rise, alongside his widespread recognition as a hugely-influential pioneer and a vital, current artist enjoying a new creative peak.
 
Tickets go on sale Monday 20th January at 9am, priced at 35 pounds Standing, 37.50 premium seats

Mortal Records presents 'Splinter' (Songs From A Broken Mind), the inspired new album by innovator, chart-topper and influential artist Gary Numan. 'Splinter' features guitarist Robin Finck (Nine Inch Nails, Guns N Roses) and is produced by long-standing collaborator Ade Fenton. The album finds Gary on fine dark electronic form; sounding both cutting-edge and classic Numan, it marks his best work since the late 70s, early 80s heyday.
 
'Splinter''s opening gambit 'I Am Dust' is a statement of intent, combining heavy grind with his archetypal anthemic pop skills. The unsettling whispered verses, crunchy guitars and Hans Zimmer-esque strings on 'Here In The Black' create a sense of menace and drama, whilst more orchestral work adorns the cinematic 'The Calling'.
 
Slower-burning ballads 'Lost', 'Where I Can Never Be' and 'My Last Day', highlight the album's broad palate, adding elements of subtlety and even beauty in contrast to the album's more aggressive moments.
