Synth pioneer Gary Numan has expanded what was to be a very short run of West Coast dates in late summer by adding concerts in the Eastern U.S. this October leading up to a pair of opening slots in Florida on Nine Inch Nails’ fall arena tour in October. All told, Numan is now planning 13 North American shows through Oct. 31.

The tour opens Aug. 28 in Sacramento, Calif., and includes stops at the Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle and the Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit in Asheville, N.C., before wrapping up with the NIN dates in late October.

Numan, of course, has a long history with Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails, and even was tapped to perform at the band’s “final” concert in 2009.

Numan is set to release his long-in-the-works album Splinter on Oct. 14.

Below, check out the full tour dates and watch video of Numan and NIN performing “Metal.”
