The show will see Numan and his band perform several songs from Intruder for the first time, as well as a selection of songs from his impressive career.

Speaking about the 2022 UK tour, Numan said: “To say I’ve missed touring would be a colossal understatement.

“It’s the life I chose when I was a teenager so not being able to tour the world has been very difficult.

“But now things are changing once again and the next UK tour has been announced and I am as excited as I was when all this started for me a lifetime ago. More so in fact.

“I can’t wait to walk out onto a stage again, to hear the roar of the crowd, the ear shattering volume of the music, to be bathed in light and soak up that emotion. It’s what I’m here for.”

Fans who order or pre-order Intruder before May 26 can access a pre-sale for the tour, which opens at 9.30am that same day.

Remaining tickets will then go on general sale from 9.30am on May 28.
