Would welcome the majority of the top two lines from 2006.
They could easily do 2 weeks in a row, and toss in an LA show in between.
^...Saturday/Sunday night with an appearance at....the Music Box? Perhaps a special acoustic set at Hollywood Forever? I'm not too sure of many small venues that could handle their fanbase + deliver sound. A Hollywood Bowl appearance would have to negate a Coachella appearance
Palladium/Wiltern shows is more what i'm thinking (unrealistically).
If they don't play we can always just have a Depeche Mode party in LA, expect some goths though.
They attracted 10,000 fans to Kimmel. DM would have to do Hollywood Bowl, and they would quickly sell out at that.
Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan: 20 songs demoed for new album, tour planned for 2013
May 2, 2012 7:33 am
Last week, Depeche Mode offered up a sneak peak of its recording studio being set up, and now frontman Dave Gahan reveals the band already has demoed about 20 new songs for its as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2009′s Sounds of the Universe — and already is making plans to take the new songs on the road next year.
In a short interview with Spin, Gahan reports that DM has reconvened with Ben Hillier, who produced Sounds of the Universe and 2005′s Playing the Angel, and also has enlisted the help of producer Christoffer Berg (Fever Ray, The Knife).
“We’ve probably got 20 songs demoed,” Gahan told Spin. “Some of the songs are in really good shape, some need some work, but we’re definitely on track. We have a deadline of the end of November, and there’s no reason we why we won’t meet that at the rate we’re going.”
As for the addition of Berg to the DM studio team, Gahan said, “He’s a great musician and has a lot of fantastic ideas. He’s not afraid to stand up and say, ‘I got an idea.’ I like that. It’s quite intimidating working with a band like ours because you have certain expectations of how it is. A lot are true and some aren’t. Martin and I are open to other people’s ideas.”
Martin Gore previously has promised that the new album will be out “no later than early 2013,” and Gahan confirms that its release will coincide with a new Depeche Mode tour: ”There are already plans in place to be touring next year.”
Ah, the soundtrack to my high school life is very Depeche Mode heavy. Never seen them live. I would love to see them at Coachella! You guys really think they could headline though?
Now that gives me some (minor) hope.
DM is my all time old school favorite fun, in 2009 he cancelled our shoreline show day of and did not reschedule! I was depressed and could not listen to it for a long time. My favorite tour was the Hits tour in 98. )) I would love to see them 2013!!!! YES
I finally got around to adding Depeche Mode to my Spotify. There's got to be around 500 tracks on there (some are redundant, and there are a shit ton of remixes).
it's summer, baby.
