OMD Plans North American Concert Tour

NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2011 (UPI)


The British pop group Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark says it will begin its North American concert tour in Toronto, Canada, this March.


The shows are to support its first new album in 14 years, "History of Modern," which was released on Bright Antenna Records through Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group and which has sold more than 100,000 copies.


Last autumn, the lineup of Andy McCluskey, Paul Humphreys, Martin Cooper, and Malcolm Holmes embarked on the sold-out "History of Modern" European Tour.   It was the band's first in 19 years.


"The tour is now officially heading stateside this March with North American stops including Boston, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Toronto and playing select shows at this year's SXSW (festival in Austin, Texas).  It will be the group's first U.S. outing with the original lineup since their 1988 stadium tour with Depeche Mode," said a news release announcing the tour Monday.


"After three years of critically acclaimed sold out concerts in the United Kingdom and Europe, these dates will feature the band mixing their most celebrated and classic hits -- 'Enola Gay,' 'So In Love,' 'If You Leave,' and 'Souvenir' -- with new songs, creating a distinctly contemporary live show."
