Formed in 1980, the band released their debut album, ‘Speak & Spell’, in 1981, with Vince Clarke, before he left the band.

Depeche Mode really know how to pull off a tour! Another excellent show, great setlist and fantastic visuals on the big screens. Singer Dave Gahan is a gifted showman, he danced, strutted and jumped around the stage with the energy of someone half his age! The played some material from 'atest album Delta Machine, a great album, but also rolled out the classics such as I Feel You, Enjoy the Silence, I Just Can't Get Enough and Personal Jesus , which really raised the roof. Well worth the price of the ticket!
Many acts tend to fade as they get older but Depeche Mode just seem to have gotten better. I was completely blown away at how good they still are. Gahan's energy and enthusiasm is fantastic, he was on top form, amazing vocals and the solos. If you are in two minds whether to see them, just do it, you will not be disappointed. The stage show, visuals, sound, venue and the mixture of new and old DP hits was genius. I can definitely recommend seeing them live!
