Gary Numan at The Fonda Theatre

Why see Gary Numan?

The Electronic New Wave Pioneer Returns To The Stage

A pioneer in commercial electronic music, English-born New Wave star Numan very much still enjoys a loyal following in the new millennium. Formerly the front man and sole songwriter and producer for punk rock and early New Wave band Tubeway Army, he opted to drop the name of the band and perform under his stage name, however he maintained the rest of the group as his backing band. Famous for his hits "Are 'Friends' Electric?" and "Cars", Numan continues to record and perform live across the USA.

His seminal album The Pleasure Principle was released in 1979, which set the bar for his enviable electronic hook skills, and was a number one hit in the British music charts that year; he continues to perform music from that album to popular request.

Most Underrated Live Show!

This was my third time to see him. He was flawless, as usual. The sound, lights, and he and the bands' performance was flawless. He is a performer and 100% business. He came out and did an almost 2 hour show and did not leave anyone disappointed. He turns 64 tomorrow and will outperform bands half his age. I'm patiently waiting for the second leg of this tour. I'll see him, again! ... Read more

3rd Gary Numan Concert in a year!

About 18 of us Numanoids gathered at 4:30pm at the Fonda for the pre-show meet and greet and sound check. Dave, his road manager & leader of Nightmare Air lead us into the theatre. We had 3 minutes each but Gary is a relaxed character, posing, listening and autographing. He gave me a hug at the end of our convo and he smelled great. Also, Dave takes excellent photos. Gemma, Raven, Echo and Persia made an appearance after the rocking sound check. The concert was flawless & tight as usual. I'd seen him within a year at the Fillmore in San Francisco, Ca and the Metro Music Hall in Salt Lake CIty (we Numanoids are devoted) but the Fonda Theatre has a special, show biz vibe. Gary Numan loves what he does he's in great shape & voice and is an excellent performer dripping sweat. His band kicked ass once again. There were sing along moments: Metal and Films especially but for some reason now when I hear Here In The Black I think of the Fonda Theatre. Me: front row pink hat, ecstatic ... Read more


Electronic Ecstasy

What a SUPERB musical experience!! Gary Numan at the Queen in Delaware, Sept. 23, 2018, was a a totally amazing performance. The concert opened with the hypnotic and powerful song Everything Comes Down to This, and included major hits like Cars and My Name is Ruin, but my favorite was the updated and thrilling Are Friends Electric. Numan has a new sensual dark edge to his electronic melodies, and the creative lighting and dancing add to the wonderful spectacle. The Queen is intimate and comfortable, and the balcony offers assigned seating. Gary Numan offered a stadium level class of concert in a smaller venue, and we the lucky audience, were blessed by his musical genius. Highly recommended!! Greatly enjoyed!! ... Read more
