Gary Numan has announced plans to undertake a short UK tour playing just material from his 1980 album "Telekon". The vintage tour is planned for fans who want to hear more of Numan's older material and will only feature songs from that album plus singles and b-sides from the same period. The four-date UK tour takes place in December and will visit the cities of Nottingham, Glasgow, Manchester and London. In a reaction on his webpage Gary Numan explains: "For quite some time I have been concerned about those fans, most of whom have been with me for many, many years, that would like to see more older songs played live. As you are aware, my own desires have been to play less older stuff as each new album comes along, especially since '94 when things got much heavier and darker. I have struggled to come up with a solution. One that enables me to continue to play predominantly newer material at the shows and yet doesn't seem to be ignoring the wishes of those people that are a, not as interested in the newer stuff or b, do like the newer stuff but would still like to hear more older songs. So this is my first attempt at trying to do something that is some kind of a solution." Check www.numan.co.uk to order your tickets.
