LIVERPOOL.- Music legends Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark are to play an exclusive concert at the Museum of Liverpool.

OMD have just celebrated 35 years in music and will mark the occasion with the intimate gig in their home city.

The special show will take place on Saturday 1 November in the Museum’s 550-capacity Atrium. The set will include greatest hits, tracks from the band’s 1983 Dazzle Ships album and one song which has never ever been performed live.

This is the first time the Museum of Liverpool has hosted a gig by a major music act. On the night OMD will consist of Andy McCluskey, Paul Humphreys and Martin Cooper.

OMD's iconic and influential fourth album Dazzle Ships was inspired by the painting Dazzle Ships in dry dock at Liverpool by Edward Wadsworth. Now that there is once again a Dazzle Ship in a dry dock in front of the Museum of Liverpool, it is appropriate that the band commemorate the event with a concert.

Tickets for the performance will also allow fans to hear the missing parts I, IV, V & VI of OMD's Dazzle Ships musique concrète composition from 1983.

As an added bonus, a unique music artefact which is usually on display in the Museum’s Wondrous Place gallery, will be involved in the show. The special reel-to-reel tape recorder known as ‘Winston’ - used by OMD during their very early gigging days - will grace the stage again for the first time in three decades.

OMD frontman Andy McCluskey said: “We can’t wait to play at the Museum. The space for the concert is fantastic and very intimate. The museums and galleries in this city have had a major influence on me so it’s nice to come back and do a unique concert at the Museum of Liverpool.”

All proceeds from the gig are going back into supporting National Museums Liverpool.

Janet Dugdale, Director of the Museum of Liverpool, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be hosting a concert by OMD, a major Liverpool group who have gone on to have success around the globe. The Museum of Liverpool tells the story of the city’s rich and fantastic music heritage. To bring that story to life with a concert by OMD should be very special indeed.”
