Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD) continue their 40th anniversary celebrations with the announcement of a special world tour, joined by both Martin Cooper and Stuart Kershaw.

"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."

The band were formed in 1978 by teenage friends Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys. They quickly became electro-pioneers with a string of hit albums released throughout the 1980’s, eventually selling over 25 million singles and 15 million albums across their career to date, establishing them as electronic synthesiser pioneers and one of Britain’s best-loved pop groups.

Last year OMD also played two acclaimed concerts at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in October. Both shows sold out and featured orchestral arrangements of many of OMD’s biggest hits, with The Times’ four star review describing the arrangements as "working perfectly with the orchestra and demonstrating how uncompromising OMD have been." It also went on to say that the band "rejected every rock’n’roll cliche going and made the Philharmonic Hall seem like their spiritual home." The shows coincided with the anniversary of OMD’s first ever gig which took place at legendary Liverpool club Eric’s in October 1978.
