On March 8, 2011, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark aka OMD played their first show in New York in 23 years at Terminal 5.  As this was my first opportunity to ever see them live, there was not a chance that I wouldn’t meet Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys, two men whose gift of song has made my life so much better!  I am delighted to report that both Andy and Paul were so nice!  They were so happy to talk to fans, many of whom had every album cover from OMD’s career.  I can’t spill the beans entirely, but when I spoke with OMD and be them to please not make us wait another 23 years to see them live again, they mentioned that “they’ll be back sooner than we think.”  Very exciting news!

Thanks again to Paul and Andy for not just making such great music, but for being really cool guys who are definitely appreciative of the positions they are in.
