To celebrate the recent re-issue and 30th anniversary of his classic album The Pleasure Principle, new wave rocker Gary Numan has announced he will come to North America this fall on tour. Blessed be! On the Pleasure Principle 2010 Tour, Numan will perform the Pleasure Principle album in its entirety, including the hit single, "Cars." The shows will also feature material spanning the artist's career, including tracks from his forthcoming album Splinter which he's currently working on in the U.K.
Hey, wasn't Pleasure Principle also the name of a Janet Jackson song? Yes, it was.
It's been a while since we last saw Numan, who last toured America in 2006 in support of his Jagged album. He was actually set to appear at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival this past April, but had to cancel due to the volcanic eruptions in Iceland blocking air traffic. That damn volcano sure screwed up a lot of people's lives.
