OMD / Peter Saville at FACT – March 2008


I don’t know much about the current line-up of Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark but this sounds pretty exciting.
OMD also play at the Empire on May 16 2007, tickets on sale Jan 26.

On Monday 30th April 2007 Virgin/EMI will release a special deluxe double pack CD and DVD of a digitally re-mastered Architecture and Morality plus a live DVD of OMD performing at Drury Lane Theatre in 1981.

Meanwhile, a brief update on the plans for the OMD/Peter Saville installation: The work will be premiered at FACT in Liverpool in March 2008 as part of the Capital of Culture celebrations. The installation has a working title of The Energy Suite and is based on five power stations.

OMD are also currently working with The London Philharmonic Orchestra for a unique tour in Autumn 2008. The series of concerts that will tour Europe and the States will see the LPO playing The Energy Suite from the OMD/Peter Savile Installation with giant screens carrying projections of the power station images as well as the band and Orchestra interpreting many of OMD’s classic back catalogue songs.
