Gary said: “To say I’ve missed touring would be a colossal understatement. It’s the life I chose when I was a teenager so not being able to tour the world has been very difficult.

"But now things are changing once again and the next UK tour has been announced and I am as excited as I was when all this started for me a lifetime ago. More so in fact.

"I can’t wait to walk out on to a stage again, to hear the roar of the crowd, the ear-shattering volume of the music, to be bathed in light and soak up that emotion. It’s what I’m here for.”

The star, who is famous for his pale-faced robotic looks and sound, had his first hit with his band Tubeway Army back in 1979 with Are Friends Electric, followed by Cars, We Are Glass and I Die You Die. The first two songs were on his hit third album, The Pleasure Principle.

Intruder is his 19th solo studio album.

News of the tour follows the recent announcement of the global streaming live event Intruder: The Worldwide Concert Premiere, which will be hosted by live performance platform Stabal on June 17.

The show will see Gary and his band perform several songs from Intruder for the first time as well as a selection of songs from his impressive career. Tickets are available from https://stabal.com/stabal_media/gary-numan/.
