A little bird tells me Gary is planning a February "Replicas" tour. UK, of course. *sigh*

Didn't know you were a big Gary Numan fan.

Certainly a good album if your rumour proves correct for a tour.

After last year's Telekon tour, he said he'd do a repeat tour this winter but focused on Replicas. So I've been waiting to hear when that might happen. Disappointed that it may be in Feb., but can't do everything! I'm just happy to be seeing Max Raabe & THL this year!

My favourite Numan period is probably that which is least favourite with his die-hard fans - I love the Warriors / Berserker / Fury / Strange Charm albums.
Well who's that shouting? John, ex-Moderator - all he ever gives us is pain!

Looks like the 2008 tour is a REPLICAS tour.

In addition to what ToyotaCityBoy said I noted that on Gary's website his posting regarding this tour says...

We have now confirmed all the tour dates for the 2008 UK Replicas Tour. I know some of these have been appearing in various places which has caused a little confusion but we wanted to wait until everything was confirmed before we said anything. More detail about this tour can be found on the Tour Dates page but these are the dates.
Feb 29. Bristol Academy
Mar 1. Sheffield Corporation
Mar 2. Glasgow ABC
Mar 3. Belfast Spring And Airbrake
Mar 4. Dublin Tripod
Mar 5. Nottingham Rock City
Mar 7. Newcastle Academy
Mar 8. Manchester Academy
Mar 9. Norwich UEA
Mar 10. Wolverhampton Wulfren Hall
Mar 11. Cambridge The Junction
Mar 12. Brighton The Dome
Mar 13. Oxford Academy
Mar 14. Southampton University
Mar 15. London Indigo 2

This tour is not only playing everything exclusively from the Replicas album, and the singles taken from it, but is also to mark Gary's 30th year in the music business and, on March 8 in Manchester, his 50th birthday. That could be a night to remember.

There's a good interview with Gary in this month's Mojo magazine. The re-release of Replicas gets a 4 star review too.

I guess as we've got 'Hope Bleeds' http://www.play.com/Music/MusicDVD/4-/589788/Gary-Numan-Hope-Bleeds/Product.html there is probably zero chance that my video...

http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z152/saraht1102/GaryNuman-DreamCorrosion.jpg

will be released on DVD.

Shame because the song list from this '1993 UK Tour - Hammersmith Apollo, London' I think sounds pretty good...

Intro/Titles
machine & Soul
Outland
Me, I Disconnect From You
We Are So Fragile
Respect
Shame
Films
Dream Killer
Down In The Park
My World Storm
The Manchman
Generator
Noise, Noise
Cars
Voix
You Are In My Vision
It Must Have Been Years
That's Too Bad
Remind Me To Smile
I'm An Agent
Are Friends Electric?
My Breathing
I Don't Believe
Bombers
Jo The Waiter
We Are Glass

There is also a fairly brief interview outside his dressing room at the end of the tape... nice little bonus where he says how immensely grateful he is to the fans for continuing to support him.

Gary Numan played to a near-capacity, highly enthusiastic crowd, in Dublin's stylish Tripod venue on Tuesday night. Playing his classic, breakthrough Replicas album in full plus related b-sides he performed with such charismatic energy and had the audience in a frenzy of delirious excitement from the moment that the pulsing analogue waves of the intro pumped through the PA.

The stage was reminiscent of his first tour. Chroma strip lighting flanked the keyboard players on both sides of the stage. The sound was superbly mixed and was at it's most powerful when the synth dominated tracks such as the wonderful 'We Have A Technical' showed how fresh his early material is. Gary, looking trim, and in top form was clearly taken aback at the overwhelming, positive reaction he received from an enthralled audience. He thanked the crowd several times and the joy on his face was a delight to witness.

The tracks were played in a different sequence than on the album and the crowd went mental when their faves were played. The highlight of the show for me was an absolutely sublime rendition of 'I Nearly Married a Human' - a beautiful piece of swirling, analogue synth music which is even better live than on record. Numan played keyboards on this and several other tracks and the sky-blue lighting complimented the tone of the song so well. One of the best moments in my life.

The encore provided the crowd with 'Cars' and pandemonium ensued on the ground floor. This was followed by 'Everyday I Die' from the debut album and the Andy Gray remixed version of 'A Prayer For The Unborn' closed the set.

A truly stunning performance left the crowd baying for more. It was so much better than I had hoped for and now hope that 'The Pleasure Principle' album will be performed live next year.

I hear that Gary says he'll prob never tour the US again, due to the expense. :-(

The Numan Replicas tour was fantastic!!!
If there is another nostalgia tour it will not in my opinion be for another 2 years, as he has said he is done with nostalgia tours at the moment.
He has to concentrate on getting an album of new material out next .... cant wait!

I hear Gary's tour will include a rendition of his latest US TV commercial featuring 24 crappy American cars and a battery named after a Bruce Willis film.
