The tour opens Aug. 28 in Sacramento, then hits Eugene, Ore., Bumbershoot, Portland, Ore., Oakland, Calif., and Santa Ana, Calif.

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

A previously announced U.K. tour in support of the album follows in November.

Sept. 3: Metro Opera House, Oakland, CA

    He is now living in California, so he’s not really “returning” to U.S. shores.

    Gary Numan MOVED TO LA in late 2012 from the UK. He has a documentary coming out about it to be released near his new cd release. the documentary is called an “Android in LALALAND”…….FYI

  3. I LOVE Gary Numan, but I’ll probably won’t go see him again unless he does an “album” show. I checked is most recent setlist (December, 2012), it it was 70% newer material that I don’t recognize.

  4. If you LOVE Gary Numan, why do you not recognize his material??? O_o

    “Android in La La Land” will not be released at the same time as ‘Splinter.’ They will be filming more material for it during his UK tour in November.
