A quick request. If you plan on downloading this and putting it on your YouTube channel or your own bootleg page - I don't mind. But a credit to this website where you found it and a link back to this page would be really appreciated. It helps me gauge which artists are popular - ie more chance of other restorations coming. Don't just steal it, cut out the intro and outro and take the credit. Thanks.
Gary Numan followed up his debut national tour of the UK in the Autumn of 1979 by taking the Touring Principle tour into Europe and then across the world. By early 1980 he was touring the USA and Canada. This set features some changes from the UK tour, including an early version of Remind Me To Smile, which featured on the Telekon album released 8 months later.
What Was Done
This (I'm pretty sure) was originally a a soundboard - sounds to me like a soundboard as its quite flat (or it was before I EQ'ed it) but its not the complete gig either, which is unusual (but not unknown) for soundboards. It's also mono - which soundboards often were at that time. Anyway, I EQ'ed and remastered it and its a great addition to any Numan collection with some raw sounding synthing all the way through!
UPDATE: While preparing this old show as separate files for a donator to the site, I found I could now improve the sound quality further, over what I’d originally done to the recording back in 2012. Once I did that, I also expanded the sound a bit so it sounds more stereo than mono; this is an all new version, really.

Supporting The Site
If you want to support the work I do on these recordings, and the site, and (if you wish to) obtain separate, fully tagged 320kbps MP3s of this restoration for less than the price of a coffee in return, lossless FLACs or even a lossless copy on CDR, head on over to the Rewards For Donations tab to see how you can obtain these for a very small donation towards the site costs. There is no obligation to do so of course - you can take the file on this page absolutely for free - but every single donation does go towards this site and domain/storage costs, and helps the site stay open, and helps me do more shows. Either way, enjoy the show.
