Electricity: OMD With The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra

On June 20 2009, 80’s synth-pioneers Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark realised a 30 year dream, backed by the rich resonance of a 75 piece orchestra, the visual majesty of filmmaker Hambi, and the vision of artist Peter Saville.

Set in the opulent and historic setting of Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, OMD performed their imposing back catalogue with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, including the orchestral premiere of the stunning collaborative artwork The Energy Suite.

The hit laden set, dripping with classics such as Enola Gay and Joan of Arc, and stuffed with exclusive firsts, such as the primary live outing of Radio Prague and Native Daughters of the Golden West, is captured in all its magnificence on ‘Electricity’ OMD with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

This DVD is no longer available commercially therefore extremely rare.
