Gary Numan to tour US for 30th anniversary of "The Pleasure Principle"

Gary Numan's The Pleasure Principle turns 30 this year—and to celebrate, the New Wave icon will tour North America this fall. He'll be performing tracks from the classic album, including Cars (duh!), but his publicist says "the shows will feature material spanning across Numan's career, including tracks from his forthcoming album Splinter which he's currently working on in the U.K."
