OMD are to support Simple minds later this year.. More on the Motion and Heart site -->>> http://www.omd.me.uk/

Or the news page -->>  md-support-simple-minds&catid=1:latest-news&Itemid=50">http://www.omd.me.uk/index.php.....t-news&Itemid=50



I think that this will be the first ever OMD tour that I will not take part in   I am not a big fan of Simple Minds, and aint going to fork out money, just for a support band... Kinda reminds me of Gary Numan supporting OMD, his fans all straight to the front, for a Numanoid sort of moment, but after it, all left....

But for value for money, for the 40 something brigade, that are wanting to do a bit of a dream, this will be popular, no doubt.

Neil, I'm not a fan of Simple Minds and so we won't be going either   If it had been OMD supported BY simple minds, then we would deffo have tried for/got some tickets

I don't mind Simple Minds (I work with enough of 'em!), but don't want to fork out a fortune. If I had a load of spare dosh I would definitely go. But I don't. So I won't. Bah.  




I am all the things I regret

Not for me. Going in June to the Philharmonic one, but never liked Simple Minds.

I'm not going either.

1. its in Manchester (travel/car park costs)
2. only like a few SM singles
3. probably similar OMD setlist as last tours
4. hopefully something new next year to wait for

But i will go (at least i hope so. If i won't be among those 4000 teachers, who 'll lose their jobs here in summer).
I won't go to the June gig (cos here aren't direct flights Riga-L-pool on those days). Was so unhapy about it, even cried, so the news about this tour cheered me up till the sky.
Of course, i'd love to see OMD as the main band, but, if it isn't possible, then one hour certainly is better than nothing.
So, i'll go. I'm so in love. I'm too in love. And i'll be in the HEAVEN. At least for an hour.

HEAVEN IS OMD!!!

BTW, i used to like SM in 90s, even had a couple of their cassettes, but bartered them for OMD.


How many times have feelings vanished in your head?
How many times must they be lost before they're said?
