Gary Numan is still touring...

Gary Numan, born 1958 as Gary Webb, has had more than a 20 year career
during which he has released over 20 albums. His most well known hit is 'Cars'
from the 1979 "Pleasure Principle" LP. It went to number 1 in the UK and helped
him into the US charts.
His stage was an elaborate collection of pyramids, robots and fluorescent light
that captured the audience.

By 1981 Numan announced his retirement to pursue his life-long interest in flying,
becoming a professional pilot and taking off on a trip around the world.
Numan's retirement was short lived, as he both returned to the studio and embarked
on a new tour in 1982.

Numan has continued to record, although his work haven't been selling as good as it
did in his glory days in the late 70s and early 80s.
