Cape Town - Iconic 80s pop group Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) is set for a one-night only performance in Cape Town.

The Electricity singers will perform at the Grandwest Casino's Grand Arena on 2 August.

The group, which has been performing together for 33 years, is best known for hits such Enola Gay, Souvenir, Joan of Arc and Pandora's Box.

The group, made up of teenage Liverpool school friends Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys, has not lost any of the appeal that saw them sell millions of records during their heyday, say concert organisers Real Concerts.

"The band's 2007 tour served as a reminder that they had never lost power or impact that they had demonstrated in the early 80s.

"With a new album on the way and live performances scheduled around the globe, OMD continue to delight and entertain audiences from a far," said Real Concerts spokesperson Kim Mari.

OMD released the album History of Modern in 2010 and have been praised by fans for keeping their original sound intact.

Tickets start at R200 and are on sale from
