Direct from London – the legendary eVOID are back for a double-city support tour for synth pioneers Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD) Greatest Hits South Africa Tour this April in Cape Town and Joburg.

The Taximan’, ‘Shadows’ and ‘ I Am a Fadget‘ hitmakers formed in 1977 on the East Rand of South Africa. The group consisted of Lucien Windrich (guitar and vocals), Erik Windrich (keyboards and lead vocals), Danny de Wet (drums) and Terry Andalis (bass).
 
The first single “Shadows” peaked at number 3 on the national charts and remains a staple of South African rock and pop oriented radio stations. In Feb 1984 they released the catchy “Taximan” which got to number 6 on the charts. Later that year, the self-deprecating “I am a Fadget” became the band’s third single, consolidating their white African punk inspired sound and striking New Romantic ‘boy band’ image.
 
By September 1984 the first album was riding high at the top of the charts, followed by the release of a 12 inch maxi single, “Kwela Walk” that received rave reviews. On Saturday 12 January 1985, eVOID performed before an estimated 100,000 people at the Concert in the Park in support of ‘Operation Hunger’ along with many other top South African bands.Get ready to junk jive in the aisles because eVOID are back this April!

After an announcement last year, of their forthcoming new studio album, synth pioneers Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD) reveal details of their return to the stage, with the band taking to the globe this year with South Africa tour dates in toe. In April this year, the band confirmed South Africa tour dates for Cape Town and Joburg as part of the ‘Greatest Hits Tour’.
 
OMD frontman Andy McCluskey says of the South African leg of the tour: “It’s been far too long since we played live in South Africa!, so we are really excited to be coming to do concerts in April 2024!
 
OMD have sold an astonishing 25 million singles and 15 million albums, which has established them as electronic synthesiser pioneers and one of Britain’s best-loved pop groups. Their 13 albums include reissued ‘Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark’ (1980), ‘Organisation’ (1980), ‘Architecture & Morality’ (1981) and ‘Dazzle Ships’ (1983).
 
By rights, OMD should be in semi-retirement, performing classics like Enola Gay and Maid Of Orleans on the nostalgia festival circuit like so many peers. Instead, they’ve created a landmark album worthy of their finest work. If real life meant OMD were happy to get help, ‘Bauhaus Staircase’ remains unmistakably the work of a duo who are still perfectly in sync 45 years after their first gig at legendary Liverpool club Eric’s.
