Times LIVE | 2012-06-28 13:31:32.0

Eighties superstars OMD are perform an original line up live in the Grand Arena.

With more than 33 years behind them, the British symphony pop-group has sold millions of records and is recognised by renowned music artists such as The Killers, the XX, LCD Sound System, and Glasvegas for their hugely influential style.

The unlikely name - Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark - chosen by two teenage Liverpool school friends Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys was supposed to be a one night only show, turned into a career now spanning over 33 years.

As the band name eventually shortened, OMD became more and more successful with hits such as Electricity, Enola Gay, Souvenir, Joan of Arc Locomotion, Seven Seas, Pandora’s Box and If you Leave.

OMD reformed in 2007 and have consistently toured to great critical and audience acclaim. The 2010 History of Modern album release saw the band being applauded for recapturing their old sound and energy whilst updating it with modern production values.

The band’s 2007 tour served as a reminder that they had never lost power or impact that they had demonstrated in the early 80’s. With a new album on the way and live performances scheduled around the globe, OMD continue to delight and entertain audiences from a far. 

Be part of a great new wave of synthesizer musical movements across the globe!
