21:05 OMD – Architecture & Morality
Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark will bring their classic 1980s albums Architecture and Morality and Dazzle Ships to the Royal Albert Hall, both albums performed in their entirety Monday 9 May 2016.
The first half of the show will see OMD perform Dazzle Ships a completely different beast to its predecessor Architecture & Morality that came out a mere 18 months before. Over the years the album has been re-evaluated and is now seen as the more modern, if fractured, masterpiece of the two.
The second half of the show will feature Architecture and Morality’s smooth choral and melodic sound that spawned the classic singles Souvenir and Maid of Orleans and went on to sell over 4 million albums.
