OMD aka Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark’s 40th Anniversary Tour is coming to the Olympia Theatre this October.

The British synth legends were responsible for some of the ’80s biggest hits including Enola Gray, selling 25million single and 15 million albums to date.

“Electronic music is our language,” Andy McCluskey says. “It’s how we talk.”

“We’re at our best when we’re in a room together, working,” Paul Humphreys adds. “That’s when the sparks and ideas happen. It’s the same now as it ever was.”
