40th Anniversary Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Shows

We are thrilled to announce the first of our 40th Anniversary celebrations!

 

We will be returning to the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic this year for a pair of concerts with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra on 6th & 7th October. These dates coincide with the anniversary of our first gig which took place at Eric’s in Liverpool in October 1978.

 

The concerts will see Andy McCluskey & Paul Humphreys accompanied by the orchestra performing some of OMD’s large scale ambient tracks such as “Stanlow”, “Sealand” and “Ghost Star”. Also featuring in the performance will be material from the recent album “The Punishment of Luxury”, rare B-sides and songs that have never been played live before, as well as some of the classic hit singles.

 

There will also be a performance of a new instrumental piece entitled “And Then She Saw The Minotaur” from an as-yet unreleased film soundtrack.

 

Tickets will be on sale from 10am on Thursday 22nd February from here. Alternatively they will be available from 9:30am on the booking like 0151 709 3789. VIP packages including the best seats in the house will also be available at this time.

Live at the Museum of Liverpool – Released today

Our new live CD/DVD "Dazzle Ships Live at the Museum of Liverpool" is released today. We are very proud of this release which documents a very special weekend at the Museum of Liverpool last year.

If you had not already ordered your copy, the store will remain open until October 2nd. After that time, we cannot guarantee that the CD/DVD will still be available for purchase, so order now to avoid disappointment.

Also available is a limited edition picture disc of the live Dazzle Ships tracks. Additionally, the live concert film is available in HD as a digital download for those who are unable to play the DVD or who would prefer an HD format.

Live at the Museum of Liverpool: Picture Disc

We’re pleased to announce the anticipated release of a 12" picture disc compiling the live recordings of the Dazzle Ships tracks performed at the Museum of Liverpool. This release follows the competition we ran asking fans to suggest items to add to our PledgeMusic campaign. Those who suggested picture discs have been contacted and have won a free copy.

Due to the expensive nature of manufacturing picture discs to the highest quality, this project will only go ahead if we have 300 pre-orders by August 17th. Any pre-orders above this number will also be manufactured, however the picture disc will never be repressed, so order now if you would like to secure your copy of this beautiful collector’s item. Please note that picture discs take a while to manufacture, so the expected delivery date will be around late November/early December.

Pre-order here.
