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.

Royal Albert Hall – Live album to be recorded

By popular demand we are happy to announce that we will record the Royal Albert Hall Dazzle Ships/Architecture and Morality show and release it immediately as a 2CD package after the show. It will be available to purchase on the night for collection after the show has finished. Alternatively it can be pre-ordered online and will be dispatched the morning after the show (so that those who are unable to make the show are also able to purchase). Please note that all online pre-orders will be shipped the following morning – in order to collect after the show you must buy it at the venue.

There will also be a download option (which will be available the day after the show) and a triple vinyl set (which will ship in mid-June). A bundle of the 2CD package and the vinyl is also available – the CD will ship on the morning after the show and the vinyl will ship once it is ready.

Unlike last year’s live CD/DVD release which was lovingly mixed and mastered by Paul Humphreys, this recording will be taken straight from the sound board on the night. In this way it will capture an instant snapshot of the energy of the live show and will be available to fans the moment the gig is finished.

Preorder here.
