Contest: Win tickets to Back To The Phuture with Gary Numan, John Foxx in London

Back to the Phuture

This one’s for our British friends: The promoters of the Gary Numan-headlined Back To The Phuture concerts taking place this April in the U.K. are offering up a pair of free tickets to the London event — also featuring John Foxx and a DJ set by Daniel Miller — for one lucky Slicing Up Eyeballs reader.

The April 2 show at London’s Troxy will feature sets by Numan, Foxx, Miller, the bands Motor and Mirrors, and DJ Mark Jones (an April 1 gig at the Manchester Academy features Numan, Motor and Recoil, aka former Depeche Mode member Alan Wilder).

To enter, just leave a comment, any comment, really, at the bottom of this post by Friday, March 11 — and use a legit e-mail address, of course, because that’s how the winner ultimately will be contacted. One winner will be drawn at random sometime after that point, and will be given two guest-list spots for the London gig.

You can also win tickets to either show via the Back To The Phuture Remix Competition, which lets fans remix Numan’s “Scanner” or Foxx’s “Shatterproof” (details here). Or, if you’re inclined to just buy tickets to the gigs, you can do that right here.
