    DM shirts were more like $40. They were $10 from "vendors" outside the venue.

    I like that Judas song too, but I'm sure I heard it live at some point. Martin's songs (that he sings) used to always be good, but I've noticed in the last few albums, they kinda suck. :/

    I bought the blue shirt and it's actually very nicely printed on a super-soft vintage style t-shirt..still not worth $40, but better than any other concert t-shirt I've bought recently. they run a little small.



    here's my video of "Judas"

    Are you talking about the shirt? Isnt "vintage" just another word "skinny"?! Noooooo (lol)

    Also, I was just on the DM website and this pic was just so PLUR I had to post it. Theyre so in love with each other (and look at Martins SMILE!)

    Depeche Mode
    By Craig Outhier
    published: September 03, 2009

    Details:
    With Peter, Bjorn, and John. 8 p.m. Saturday, September 5, at BankAtlantic Center, 1 Panther Parkway, Sunrise. Tickets cost $27 to $86.75.

    It'll take more than a sprained knee and a "low-grade malignant tumor" to keep Depeche Mode from spreading its time-tested brand of brooding synthpop across America this summer. Consider the band's many personal tribulations: lead singer Dave Gahan's heroin addiction, lead songwriter Martin Gore's seizures, and lead wallflower Andy Fletcher's bouts of neurosis, not to mention a decade of artistic frustration, culminating in the famously lackluster Exciter LP (2001). For a moment there, it had looked as though the Essex trio might not survive the 20th Century. Then Gahan got clean and the band released Playing the Angel (2005), featuring two career-reviving singles in the spookily lush "Precious" and the Grammy-nominated disco anthem "Suffer Well." Supporting their latest disc, Sounds of the Universe, Gahan and company appear fully reconditioned. Their new electro-roots sound fully kicks ass, and their current tour — dubbed Tour of the Universe — is their most ambitious yet, covering four continents and taking them everywhere from Peru to Tel Aviv. The wild card here is Gahan's penchant for untimely sickness and injury, which forced DM to cancel ten dates at the beginning of the tour and two more in July. Note to Dave: Eat your apples.

    Depeche Mode puts 'rock' in electronic rock

    By David Burger

    The Salt Lake Tribune
    Updated: 08/26/2009 11:00:33 AM MDT

    West Valley City Note to Depeche Mode: If you want audiences to appreciate your musicianship, showing soft-core lesbian porn on a large video screen during your rendition of "Strangelove" will have the opposite effect.

    The British electronic rock band's inexplicable miscue, one of several throughout its 20-song, nearly two-hour show at the E Center Tuesday, still didn't deaden the impact of a solid, confident band showing why it has survived, and thrived, since its creation in 1980.

    Playing to a full but not sold-out crowd that appreciated the band's string of hits more than its new material, Depeche Mode was led a charismatic, clad-in-all-black Dave Gahan. His sweaty showmanship, exemplified by treating the microphone stand like a stripper's pole and swiveling his hips like an incarnation of Elvis Presley's sexuality, illustrated that when it comes to frontmen, magnetism can't be taught or even rationally explained.

    Gahan, whose baritone showed signs of frailty and weakness at times, still managed to make up for the statuesque presence of the other two core members of the band, Martin Gore and Andy Fletcher, The band was joined by another keyboard player and a drummer.

    Early sound problems marred the set, especially when Gore put down his guitar and became the third band member playing keyboards. "It's No Good" and "Walking In My Shoes," in particular, suffered from too many layers of synths and keyboards that as the songs crested into a crescendo, became a deafening, garbled wall of sound. Luckily, by the time songs such as "I Feel You" and "Never Let Me Down Again," were played near the end, the arrangements were more restrained while never sounding dull or lifeless.

    For a band nearing 30 years together, it was fun to hear them tinker with the arrangements of songs that have been concert staples for years. "Policy of Truth" was more whimsical and lightweight than on record, lending it an air of playfulness that was a respite from the band's more serious songs. "Enjoy the Silence" benefited from a tribal rhythm, and the band's warhorse, "Personal Jesus," owed a debt to both rockabilly and garage-rock influences.

    Depeche Mode's set was a standard large video screen that often showed gritty images reminiscent of Anton Corbijn's music videos of the band in the early 1990s. Liberal uses of smoke and fog, reflected by strobe and dramatic lighting, added mystery to the stage, and most eye-catching of all was a giant spinning orb near the top of the video screen, transforming from song to song into eyes, a globe, ruby lips, and so on.

    All in all, the band performed a satisfying set that was complete with two two-song encores. It's just you wished the band had used nearly 30 years of experience to iron out some of the problems that threatened to derail the power of the show.

    24 HOURS AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!

    http://www.miamiherald.com/living/story/1215761.html

    Like most internationally renowned rock groups, Depeche Mode has endured its share of internal drama.

    But on its recent world tour, which makes a stop Saturday night at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, the seminal British synth-pop band has had to deal with lead singer Dave Gahan suffering from gastroenteritis, a benign bladder tumor and a freak leg injury from an accident at a gig in Spain.

    It's no wonder Andy Fletcher, founding member and keyboardist of the group that gave us the hits Personal Jesus, Blasphemous Rumours and People Are People, sounds relieved to be back on the road. He talked to The Miami Herald about what to expect from the tour, the beginning of the band and the early departure of Vince Clarke, who went on to star in the bands Yazoo and Erasure.

    Q: How's the tour going so far, and how is Dave holding up?

    A: It's been a very strange tour. We've had some of the best gigs of our career, particularly in Paris and Milan, and the Hollywood Bowl we played for the first time. But some parts have been calamitous; we've had to cancel quite a few shows. But Dave is fighting, and all the ailments he's had are not there anymore. And he's singing very well at the moment, so we're very optimistic about getting to Miami [laughs]. We missed Miami last time, though. There was a big hurricane, and we had to cancel because they didn't have enough police to do the show. This is actually the last show of the American tour, so it should be good.

    Q: What can we expect to hear?

    A: We've tried to spread the set list throughout our career. But to be honest, the set list itself is becoming a problem each time we tour, having so many songs to choose from. It's very hard not to disappoint some fans. We're playing Enjoy the Silence and Personal Jesus, but we're not playing Just Can't Get Enough, for instance, on this tour. But the set list is good. We're taking some interesting old tracks from albums, mixed in with big hits and obviously some tracks from the new album [Sounds of the Universe].

    Q: Depeche Mode has had a major influence on many of today's popular bands, from Pet Shop Boys to the Killers to Radiohead, and electronic acts such as Kruder & Dorfmeister and the Crystal Method. What influenced your sound back in 1980?

    A: I think we were very fortunate that when we were about 16, punk really exploded in England with the Sex Pistols. And there was this whole feeling that you didn't have to be a fantastic musician to make a record. So that was a quite exciting period, when independent labels starting popping up. And after that, the electronic scene started, and we were big fans of Kraftwerk, obviously, and early Human League was very influential. We started off as a guitar band but then moved toward all synthesizers, and we were able to do that because it was the first time synthesizers had come down to a normal price, about 150 bucks.

    Q: Do you remember having the feeling you were doing something groundbreaking?

    A: I think we were, because Kraftwerk were using these big computers, and these we had were like small monophonic synthesizers. So yeah, certainly when we came over to America, we felt no one had seen it before.

    Q: What do you think of Vince Clarke's work with Yaz (Yazoo in the U.K.) and Erasure?

    A: Well, obviously I'm a massive fan. I think Vince is one of the best songwriters Britain has produced in the last 30 years. It's an honor to have him as a friend and an honor to have been in a band with him. It was me and Vince who started [Depeche Mode]. Vince was the real driving force behind the band as well. He was so determined to be successful.

    Q: Would it be fair to say that his departure helped Depeche Mode to evolve toward a darker sound?

    A: Yeah, I think if Vince had stayed . . . with Erasure and Yazoo, it's all pretty much the same, isn't it, the pop music with Vince's stamp on it? Looking back, with Vince leaving, you're right. Yes, it did, because Martin [Gore] is a much different songwriter. So I was lucky to be in a group with two great songwriters.

    Q: Are you still close with Vince?

    A: We still count each other as friends. We don't come across each other very much. He lives in Maine now, believe it or not, in the real wilderness. He's always been a bit of a loner, so he probably likes that.

    Q: What do you think of Miami?

    A: It's a big city, isn't it? I had a holiday there for a few days in South Beach, and we've always stayed at this hotel. I can never remember where it is. But we've always had a great time there, and we're lucky we have quite a few friends who live in Miami, so it's always good to get there.
