Gary Numan will perform the final show of his recent U.S. tour at San Francisco’s iconic Fillmore this Sunday, April 6, following a successful run of shows in support of his latest album Splinter (Songs from a Broken Mind) featuring career-spanning songs as well as tracks from the new album which included collaborations with members of Nine Inch Nails and Battles. The album (his twentieth) released last year and was his first album in three decades to crack the Billboard Top 200. The man most famous for the songs “Cars” and “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?” isn’t afraid to still bust out the hits at his live shows, but don’t expect the same song and dance. His recent tour has featured an active, animated Numan bringing high energy to his live act after all these years yet still connecting personally with each song.
Gary Numan inspired a generation of songwriters when he initially burst on the scene in the late ’70s and has maintained his relevancy over the years. He helped define contemporary electronic music and his new music still pushes the boundaries of the very genre he helped create. For a 56-year-old dude coming around one more time it’s certainly not a show to miss. San Francisco is a consistent final stop on a lot of bands’ tours and it marks the end for Numan’s current one before he zips off to Australia.
