Gary Numan & The Skaparis Orchestra
Saturday 17th November 2018- The Bridgewater Hall
Gary Numan has just finished Part 2 of his UK Tour to promote his current album ‘Savage: Songs From A Broken World’. The album was released in September last year through BMG and earned the best reviews of Gary’s career. He entered the UK charts at No.2, a fantastic achievement for the iconic and highly influential artist.
The British electro pioneer was also awarded the Inspiration Award for songwriting and composition at the Ivor Novellos last year and has been receiving outstanding live reviews proving that he is on fine form. Now, the tour will take a surprisingly elegant turn when Gary Numan and his band are joined by The Skaparis Orchestra for 6 exclusive shows.
With orchestral concerts taking place in Cardiff, Birmingham, Newcastle, Manchester, London and Glasgow, the shows will feature songs drawn not only from his highly successful ‘Savage’ album, but also key songs from his vast back catalogue. .
Gary Numan’s music has always had a filmic quality but with The Skaparis Orchestra joining his regular band, that mix of hard electronic and soaring cinematic atmosphere will finally come fully to life. Gary will also be showcasing the most extravagant light show he’s taken on the road for over three decades, designed specifically for these special orchestral performances.
While Numan was writing the record, Donald Trump was elected President of the United States. It made sense to make him and his climate decisions the catalyst for the apocalypse theme of the album.
