Gary Numan announces ‘Machine Music’ retrospective DVD, 12-date U.K. tour

Groundbreaking synthman Gary Numan today announced the release of a retrospective DVD entitled “Machine Music: The Best of Gary Numan” that will collect his music videos and some TV appearances from throughout his career — and which will be accompanied by a 12-date tour of the U.K. and Ireland late this spring.

The limited-edition DVD initially will be available on Numan’s tour, and then will be widely released June 11. According to Numan’s website, it will include “the pioneering videos made for tracks such as ‘We Are Glass’ and ‘I Die: You Die,’ right up to more recent promos ‘The Fall’ (from the 2011 Dead Son Rising album) and the Battles collaboration ‘My Machines.’

The tour opens May 22 in Leicester and runs through June 3 in Brighton (see full dates below), and will feature “a one-off set,  based around Gary Numan’s singles over the last 33 years, and material from the recent Dead Son Rising album.”

Numan also is asking fans to help create on-stage visuals for six tracks to be performed on the tour (“This Wreckage,” “Bombers,” “Berserker,” “Call Out The Dogs,” “Warriors” and “Dominion Day”). The artist’s team is looking for ideas (“however abstract,” but “please, no images of Gary Numan”) that can be submitted in 16:19 widescreen format and in HD via YouTube or Vimeo link via this contact form.
