I’m unlikely to be able to go to these shows but if I was in the UK I definitely would be.
I have seen OMD several times in a live setting and they are one of those acts that can win over neutrals with their live show. If you know a few of their hits and you sort of like those, then this show is for you. As the show progresses you will recognise other songs, perhaps not realising that they did that one too.
Sealing the deal is the inspired coupling of Scritti Politti. I have never seen them live but I am told that Green’s voice is a thing of wonder when witnessed live. I expect we will get a one hour set and seeing them is probably well worth the entry fee in itself.
I know what you’re thinking – is it really going to happen what with COVID and whatnot? I think the time has come to get optimistic, the cases are going down, the vaccines are kicking in – and as long as we wash our hands with kindness and stop snogging everything that moves, we’re going to be fine.
