Gary Numan

Electronic music pioneer Gary Numan has announced his Irish return with a headline show at the Olympia Theatre, Dublin on May 24, 2022 in support of his 18th studio album ‘Intruder’.

Numan explains: “‘Intruder’ looks at climate change from the planet’s point of view. If Earth could speak, and feel things the way we do, what would it say? How would it feel? The songs, for the most part, attempt to be that voice, or at least try to express what I believe the earth must feel at the moment.”

Tickets go on sale at 9.30am on Friday, May 28 on
