Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark Announce Fall 2024 North American Tour Dates

Synth-pop, post-punk, and new wave pioneers Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) are poised to captivate North American audiences with their much-anticipated fall tour, starting in September 2024. The announcement follows their standout performance at the Darker Waves Festival in Huntington Beach last November, setting the stage for a series of shows that will highlight their legendary live performance prowess. This tour marks a pivotal moment for OMD, offering a stage to showcase their latest work alongside their timeless classics.

OMD’s musical journey, rooted in the post-punk era and quickly evolving to embrace new-wave, has set them apart as innovators. Their 1979 debut single “Electricity,” released on the iconic Factory Records and produced by the legendary Martin Hannett, was a bold introduction to their unique sound. Inspired by Kraftwerk’s “Radioactivity,” “Electricity” was a nod to their electronic music predecessors, setting the foundation for OMD’s pioneering role in the electronic music scene.

The band’s recent European tour, which included their largest-ever headline show at London’s O2 Arena, signals a creative resurgence. Their latest album, “Bauhaus Staircase,” released via White Noise, has been celebrated as a high point in their career, blending their signature sound with incisive political commentary. Andy McCluskey, the band’s co-founder, expressed his contentment with the album, potentially positioning it as the band’s final statement. “I’m comfortable if this is OMD’s last statement,” McCluskey said, emphasizing the album’s significance.

The North American tour will feature a mix of new tracks and fan favorites, with McCluskey revealing the band’s excitement about integrating “Bauhaus Staircase” into their live set. “We are so excited to be able to tour again with a brand new album to showcase,” McCluskey says. “It’s been six years since we learned new songs for live performances. The songs from ‘Bauhaus Staircase’ will fit beautifully into our setlist – we just have to choose which five to play, as we have to treat people to the hits as well!”

Walt Disco, set to support OMD throughout the North American leg, adds to the tour’s anticipation. The involvement of such a dynamic supporting act promises a varied and engaging concert experience for attendees.

Tickets for OMD’s North American tour will be on sale this Friday, February 23, with further information available on their official website. Fans are encouraged to secure their tickets promptly to experience the band’s return to the North American stage.
