Formed in the Wirral in 1978, OMD are today considered pioneers of synth-pop. They achieved chart success and critical acclaim for tracks like 'Enola Gay', 'Souvenir', 'Talking Loud and Clear' and 'Joan of Arc'.

OMD celebrated their 40th anniversary back in 2019 with a UK-wide tour. In 2021 the band will celebrate 40 years of seminal album Architecture & Morality. The record was the third to be released by the group and was met with critical acclaim and hailed as the 'the blueprint of synth-pop' by The Morning News.

The tour will see the band perform songs from their iconic album plus many more hits from their back catalogue. Kicking off in Glasgow, the tour works its way across the UK with a stop at London's Eventim Apollo and Liverpool for a hometown show at the Liverpool Empire.

Speaking of the tour, OMD's co-founder Andy McCluskey commented: 'After purgatory without the oxygen of live performance to energise both artist and audience, what joy it is to know we will be able to share these moments again!'
