80’s New Wave Icon , Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD)  To Perform “If You Leave” and Other Big Hits Live in Manila! 

Summary:  80s New Wave Hitmaker all set for their one night concert in Manila

“If You Leave” was one of the anthemic monster hits of the 80’s decade.  Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark  a.k.a. OMD, lorded over radio charts worldwide, and their hits pervaded over the playlists of disco-mobile parties.  “Secret”, “So In Love”, “Dreaming”, “Enola Gay”, and a whole lot more, solidified their iconic status in the age of synth-pop and new wave music.

The original frontmen of OMD –Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys, and their original band members Martin Cooper and Malcolm Holmes, are set to hit Manila for a one-night only concert on March 12, 2012, 8:00pm at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.  Billed as the “History of Modern” concert tour,  OMD is raring to hit the live concert stage and dish out their classic and influential hit songs to delight their Filipino fans and create a big dance party to celebrate a decade marked by hairspray, hair gels, shoulder pads, neon colors, strobe lights, and above all, great music!

OMD’s ‘History of the Modern’ tour marks the release of their 11th studio album, raved by critics and selling briskly in Europe, reaching #28 in the UK album charts.   OMD regrouped way back in 2007 and started touring the world and played successful sold-out concerts.  Since then, they’ve been recording and touring non-stop.  Their first US tour in March 2011, which took place 23 years after their last US gig in 1988, was a rousing success thus, they pursued on embarking on this Asian leg.

OMD’s music and career now spans 33 years, yet their music simply refuses to fade.  Their influence can be strongly felt in the style and sound of modern bands like The Killers, The XX, The LCD Sound System, and Glasvegas.  The brooding vocals, the heavy synths, are obvious stark references to OMD’s synthpop-new wave signature sound.

“If You Leave”, “Secret”, “Enola Gay”, “So In Love”, “Dreaming”  — classic songs that are all worth hearing and experiencing live!  They not only bring back great 80’s memories, it’s a generation celebrating the joys of youth  and a passion for life.
