OMD The Punishment of Luxury Tour
1st November 2017 at 19:00
The event will be held in Cliffs Pavilion, Station Road, Southend-on-Sea, Essex, SS0 7RA, and is £39.99 to attend.
Signed first to Factory Records and then snapped up by Virgin, the duality inherent in OMD was plain to see from the start.
As Peter Saville’s minimalist artwork belied the warmth of Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys’ timeless songwriting. Described by The Quietus as “not just one of the best synth bands ever – they are one of the best bands ever” , OMD’s influence has become ubiquitous. The xx, the Killers and LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy have cited OMD as an inspiration, and the likes of Future Islands and Chvrches show traces of OMD’s DNA.
Now they return with their thirteenth album ‘The Punishment of Luxury’, a daring collection of stylish synth-pop and masterful song craft that sees OMD edge out of their comfort zone without compromising their integrity.
Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult and are only permitted in the seated area.
