Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD) continue their 40th anniversary celebrations with the announcement of a special world tour. Starting in October in Portugal, stretching through to February 2020 finishing in Paris, the band will be joined by both Martin Cooper and Stuart Kershaw.
The band perform at York Barbican on Sunday 27th October, Hull Arena on Monday 28th October, and Sheffield City Hall on Sunday 3rd November.
This announcement comes as part of another exciting installment of the band’s 40th anniversary celebrations which first saw the reissue of their first four classic albums on 180g vinyl, mastered at half speed by Miles Showell at Abbey Road and housed in their original iconic die cut sleeves designed by the legendary Peter Saville.
The celebrations also spawned a must-read special 40th anniversary book which tells the story of OMD from the garage beginnings right through to the latest sell out tours. Featuring memories from band members, other musical artists that they have influenced, famous admirers and loyal fans.
As part of their world tour, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark will also join The B-52’s and Tom Tom Club for a run of US dates in the August & September. They are also set to release a definitive singles collection later this year. More info is set to follow.
