OMD finally returning for U.S. tour




Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark is returning to Canada and the United States this March for the first time in 1988. Just how big is that?

The band announced this week that its History of Modern tour will include stops in Boston, New York, San Francisco, Toronto and a slew of other big cities -- sadly none in Florida, but there are other dates in the Southeast and Southwest. (I'm leaning toward Atlanta or Houston myself because there is absolutely NO WAY I'm missing them this time around.)

According to the band's official website, there will be VIP and Gold packages available for die-hard fans. The VIP package will include a chance to meet the band. Tickets, which are all general admission, go on sale Friday. Here is the full list of dates:
