Published Mar 05, 2013This spring and summer, one of Canada's hottest electro-pop acts will team up with one of the genre's pioneers when Diamond Rings hits the road as Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark's opening act.
OMD's previously announced North American tour is split between two legs, first in April and then in July. Diamond Rings is on the bill for both of these legs, with stops in a number of U.S. cities, plus a gig in Vancouver and two shows in Toronto.
Beyond this, Diamond Rings' schedule features a smattering of shows without OMD including a selection of Canadian dates. See his full itinerary below.
