#16 - Summer 2016 USA support tour

Posted on February 6, 2016 at 8:20 AM

OMD have announced a huge tour of North America supporting Barenaked Ladies across June and July. Howard Jones is also on the bill for all dates and tickets are on sale now.

In my opinion this is a sensible move (as long as it doesn't delay the new album!!) as it will mean huge exposure to a large section of the US but at a much smaller cost than a full headlining tour of their own. A peerfect chance to mention to the ...

#15 - Royal Albert Hall in 2016!

Posted on November 26, 2015 at 4:00 PM

Well, who saw this coming?!?

On 9th May 2016 OMD will perform Architecture & Morality and Dazzle Ships in full at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Standard and VIP tickets are on sale next week. There is sure to be strong demand for this and I am crossing my fingers that I will be there too!

Andy and Paul wrote 'Of All The Things We've Made' the night before the A+M tour started back in 1981, belie...

Hi all

Seems a bit late for Merry Christmas and Happy New Year :lol:

I've finally updated the site to include some 2011 gigs and added a page for 2012! In case you weren't aware, OMD are playing 2 Asian shows in March, 1 in Singapore and 1 in the Phillipines. It's their first-ever venture there so I hope all goes well.

Hi all

Apologies again for another long quiet period but technical issues have now been resolved and the site is fully up to date (well, as of today anyway!) with all remaining tour dates for 2011. 

For those who were lucky enough to be at Eric's on 10th September I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! Fingers crossed for an end of year one-off UK show...

#8 OMD to tour the USA - again!

Posted on July 11, 2011 at 5:24 PM

Hi all

Sorry for the long silence but I've been having access issues. There are a lot of updates I need to take care of so please bear with me. Dave Smith is very kindly beginning to add some of the shows listed here on Dime so keep any eye out; there are plenty to get through! Long term, the plan is to have them all available for sharing. 20 years of trading and plent of costs incurred but what the hey :lol:

#7 OMD to tour the USA !

Posted on January 9, 2011 at 4:07 PM

13 dates for the USA and Canada have been announced for March this year. I think this is excellent news for all OMD fans over the water as it's been a long time coming for an OMD headlining tour - nearly 25 years in fact, December 1986 was the last time.

I am tempted but I think my wallet will have to rule my heart on this one but you never know...:/
