On Just Missing Gary Numan

You know how there are artists from your youth that, for one reason or another, you just haven't seen live? Gary Numan is one such artist.

I played his records to death in my bedroom as a kid. He released a live box set called Living Ornaments '79 and '80 that I played over and over and over. I still listen to it, albeit on Spotify these days, in fact it's in my top five most listened to albums.

Because I live in a cave I didn't really pay attention to his 2024 tour schedule that closely. I think I saw he was playing with Ministry and there was some talk of separate break away solo shows? Or something.

Last week I REALLY paid attention because I saw he was playing at the Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix in April. That's next month, but really, how popular could he be in Phoenix eh? Could it be after all these years?

No. No it couldn't. For the show is completely sold out. Snooze you most certainly lose. I just have to hope that 2024 is not the year he retires. Boo.

    That sucks the AZ show is sold out. Well not sucks for Gary. He is quite popular still. He is one of the artists I loved listening to for years. Even beyond the hit single "Cars". His latest album was so good. He is playing here in SLC on 04/03/2024. I am tempted to go
