Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark

100% unofficial and fan-made  


Below is a typical set list for this year (there may be more beneath it depending on the tour dates).


Further down is a full list of all live recordings for this year including date, venue and tracks recorded. 


The typical set list for 1981 was only played quite late in the year due to the release date of Architecture and Morality. Prior to this, there were at least 2 visits to the USA and Canada that still featured most of the Organisation set list and was being performed as late as October 1981.
