    And most of the fans want them to play there again and think it will sell out.

    I don't know why on earth you'd rather see a band in a football stadium instead of an arena, even for nostalgia's sake...but I think that if DM can play 3 nights at Staples Center, it's not that huge of a stretch to believe they could sell out the Rose Bowl. L.A. is their biggest market. Lunatics would probably travel for that too.

    It would absolutely sell out, especially if they haven't done a show on the west coast in awhile, it was the only show in California, and ESPECIALLY if they got Alan to perform with them.

    Depeche Mode’s ‘Concert For The Masses’ Rose Bowl Show, 25 Years Later

    June 18, 2013 10:45 AM


    Today marks a historic day in Depeche Mode’s career. Twenty five years ago, on June 18, 1988, the British synth-pop band played the 101st show of their Music For The Masses Tour to more than 65,000 fans at the famed Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. But this show proved to be more special than any of the 100 before it. This show would be dubbed the “Concert for the Masses,” and go down as the band’s most indelible performance.

    Thanks to Depeche Mode fan site DM TV Archives, an 18-minute short film was assembled from television news and personal footage boasting several never-before-seen and behind-the-scenes clips from the day of the Rose Bowl concert, which you can watch here.

    “This will be a very big occasion for us,” said former member Alan Wilder in a pre-concert press conference (shown in the video). “Not only being the largest but also the most prestigious concert we’ve ever played as a headline act.”

    Interviewed just prior to taking the stage, Martin Gore, the band’s chief songwriter admitted, “We’re quite nervous. It’s the biggest event… Biggest crowd we’ve ever played to.” But it is the 101st show [on the tour]. We’re quite rehearsed. We’re quite ready for it.”

    According to keyboardist Andrew Fletcher, the band’s biggest audience to date had been 40,000. The Rose Bowl audience would dwarf that number by at least 25,000. The show coincided with the 10th anniversary of KROQ, which had been a longtime Depeche Mode supporter.

    “Every other radio station in SoCal mocked us on the air saying, ‘Depeche Mode should be at the Palladium not at a stadium’ and in truth behind the scenes we were all nervous,” Richard Blade, a KROQ DJ at the time of the show, recounted to Radio.com. “I drove into the vast empty arena with Depeche Mode on an overcast February morning to announce the concert and the tickets on sale, and after the live broadcast had concluded I had breakfast with the band and Martin Gore confided in me that he was nervous and hoped they could at least sell out the floor seats – just 10,000 tickets.”

    The concert went on sale as planned and was widely considered a sellout.

    The concert also featured ’80s alt icons O.M.D., Wire and Thomas Dolby. Interviewed just minutes before they were set to go on stage, Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys of O.M.D. admitted that they were rather nervous. “This is the largest gig we’ve done in America,” Humphreys added.

    At the close of the show, the enthusiastic crowd sung the chorus to “Everything Counts” for nearly ten minutes after the band said their goodbyes.

    “I sang ‘Everything Counts’ with 65,000 other people as the concert ended, and I felt like I was part of something unique and special, something that would never happen again,” recalled actor Wil Wheaton (best known for his role on Star Trek: The Next Generation) on his blog. “Over the years, I’ve run into other people who were at the same show, and even the ones who weren’t fifteen and given to over-romanticizing things tell me that they felt the same thing.”

    “They knew this was a milestone for them and for KROQ, and for two hours they pulled out all the stops and left everything on the stage,” Blade explained. “Backstage, after their amazing performance, I chatted with [singer] Dave Gahan as he cried from pure happiness. He told me that the tears were because he didn’t know if the group could ever pull off anything this great again and for him it was the most emotional concert of his career.”

    Blade met up with Gahan a year later in Florida and reminisced about the show. “Dave said, ‘It wasn’t just an important show for D’Mode it was an important show for new music in America.’”

    A live album of Depeche Mode’s historic Rose Bowl performance, titled 101, was released in 1989 and available on iTunes. The performance was made into a concert film, also titled 101, which is now a bit hard to find but available here (or in full on YouTube, surprisingly).

    Depeche Mode is currently touring the world in support of their 13th album, Delta Machine. The band is scheduled to play 20 U.S. dates beginning with in Detroit’s DTE Energy Theatre on August 13.

    I watched a youtube vid of Martin doing Higher Love and I was pretty excited. It's not acoustic like I thought it would be.

    That being said, they've dropped a couple of the new songs from their US setlist; unfortunately, they dropped the two that I love the most (Goodbye and Secret to the End).

    I am going to be there, pit also. I get to meet them! Very excited. I have friends and family coming from out of town so it will be a group of 8 of us. Not to mention at least a dozen other people from high school etc. I know that are going. Should be a fun night.
    This is the single smallest venue on the whole tour. I assume it is because Martin lives here and they recorded the album here. I saw Crystal Castles last year at the Palladium and was not all that impressed. I do not think Alice spitting on the audience will go over that well here if people are not familiar with her style, but it should be amusing to see how it goes over with the usually super mellow SB crowd.
    2014...Pixies San Jose, Queens of the Stone Age Vegas, Flogging Molly Oakland, Beck SB Arlington, Coachella weekend 1, Dum Dum Girls Roxy, The National SB Bowl, X Roxy, X San Luis Obispo, Echo and the Bunnymen Orpheum LA, FYF Los Angeles, Weezer Paso Robles, Queens of the Stone Age MEXICO CITY and the Forum, and every single show at the Santa Barbara Bowl for the 2014 season, good, bad or indifferent
