British synth-pop legends OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark) have announced a 15-date UK arena tour scheduled throughout November next year – and it includes a visit to Edinburgh’s Usher Hall.
The tour – which will see the band perform songs from their iconic album Architecture & Morality, plus many more hits from their legendary back catalogue – will also stop off at Glasgow’s 02 Academy.
OMD’s Andy McCluskey said: “After purgatory without the oxygen of live performance to energise both artist and audience, what joy it is to know we will be able to share these moments again!”
The UK tour adds to what is an already exciting schedule of activity for fans and band alike.
OMD recently announced a 40th anniversary limited edition 12” coloured vinyl release of legendary anti-war hit single Enola Gay – out November 27, and an extremely special live streamed show from London’s Indigo at The O2 on March 27, 2021 – postponed from its original date of October 24 due to Covid travelling restrictions and Andy’s ongoing symptoms.
The show is set to raise money and awareness for their crew, whose livelihoods have been so affected in the wake of the global Covid-19 pandemic.
Purchased tickets for this streamed show also give fans a 48 hour window to getting VIP access to the best seats in the house for the November arena tour.
The band will play the following UK arena headline shows in November 2021:
