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 on Nine Inch Nails’ fall arena tour in October. All told, Numan is now planning 13 North American shows through Oct. 31.
Gary Numan will return to U.S. shores late this summer for a very short run of concerts on the West Coast, performing at the Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle in late August and, while he’s here, playing shows in California and Oregon as well. The tour opens Aug. 28 in Sacramento.
