About Depeche Mode
Pioneering English band Depeche Mode took the underground electronic club sounds of the early '80s and expanded them to stadium-sized levels within a decade, becoming one of the best-selling international groups in the process. One of the first acts to establish a musical identity based completely around the use of synthesizers, they debuted with a bouncy electro-pop spirit which gradually developed into a darker, more dramatic synth-rock style that ultimately positioned them as one of the most quintessential alternative bands of their era. Earning a modest European following with early releases like 1981's Speak & Spell and 1983's Construction Time Again, they made their U.S. breakthrough in 1984 with their platinum-certified fourth LP, Some Great Reward. From there, Depeche Mode remained a fixture on the international Top Ten with hit '90s albums such as the classic Violator and their first U.S./U.K. number one, the grunge-influenced Songs of Faith and Devotion. While internal drama and struggles with substance abuse threatened to derail them by the late '90s, their ever-evolving sound adapted with the times, whether diving into moody trip-hop on 1997's Ultra or digitizing with experimental electronic on 2001's Exciter. By the late 2000s, the trio experienced a popular resurgence and renewed drive with the chart-topping electro-rock Playing the Angel, which kicked off a new era that poised Depeche Mode as elder statesmen of the genre, dominating sales with each subsequent release and even embarking on their longest tour to date, in support of their 14th album, 2017's politically charged Spirit. Major changes carried them into the 2020s: after they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame during the COVID-19 pandemic, they were reduced to a duo following the death of founding member Andy "Fletch" Fletcher in 2022. The next year, they processed the years of losses on the contemplative Memento Mori. Originally a product of Britain's new romantic movement, Depeche Mode got their start in 1976, when Basildon, England-based keyboardists and Fletcher first teamed to form the group No Romance in China. The band proved short-lived, and by 1979 had formed French Look, another duo featuring guitarist/keyboardist ; Fletcher soon signed on, and the group rechristened themselves Composition of Sound. Initially, handled vocal chores, but in 1980 singer was brought in to complete the lineup. After one final name change to Depeche Mode, the quartet jettisoned all instruments excluding their synthesizers, honing a slick, techno-based sound to showcase 's catchy melodies. After building a following on the London club scene, Depeche Mode made their debut in 1980 with "Photographic," a track included on the Some Bizzare Album label compilation. After signing to , they issued "Dreaming of Me" in early 1981; while neither the single nor its follow-up, "New Life," caused much of a stir, their third effort, "Just Can't Get Enough," became a Top Ten U.K. hit, and their 1981 debut LP, Speak and Spell, was also a success. Just as Depeche Mode appeared poised for a major commercial breakthrough, however, principal songwriter abruptly exited to form with singer , leaving the group's future in grave doubt. As grabbed the band's songwriting reins, the remaining trio recruited keyboardist Alan Wilder to fill the technological void created by 's departure. While 1982's A Broken Frame deviated only slightly from Depeche Mode's earlier work, 's ominous songs grew more assured and sophisticated by the time of 1983's Construction Time Again. Some Great Reward, issued the following year, was their artistic and commercial breakthrough, as 's dark, kinky preoccupations with spiritual doubt ("Blasphemous Rumours") and psychosexual manipulation ("Master and Servant") came to the fore; the egalitarian single "People Are People" was a major hit on both sides of the Atlantic and typified the music's turn toward more industrial textures. Released in 1986, the atmospheric Black Celebration continued the trend toward grim melancholy and further established the group as a commercial force; it eventually sold over 500,000 copies in the U.S., which earned it gold status. Released in 1987, Music for the Masses, featuring three Hot 100 singles in "Strangelove," "Never Let Me Down Again," and "Behind the Wheel," propelled the group into the mainstream. The album would sell over a million copies in the U.S. alone. A subsequent sold-out tour yielded the 1989 double-live set 101. Recorded at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, it was accompanied by a concert film directed by the legendary D.A. Pennebaker. With the alternative music boom of the early '90s, Depeche Mode emerged as one of the world's most popular acts. The triple-platinum Violator, released in 1990, was a Top Ten smash that spawned the hits "Personal Jesus" (a number eight single), "Enjoy the Silence," "Policy of Truth," and "World in My Eyes." Riding the success of Violator, their 1993 LP Songs of Faith and Devotion -- featuring a significant change in its heavy use of electric guitars -- became the band's first to enter the charts at number one in the U.K. and U.S. Influenced by the burgeoning grunge sounds of and , the Flood-produced effort featured the singles "I Feel You" and "Walking in My Shoes." However, at the peak of its success, the group began to unravel, beginning with Wilder's 1995 exit. attempted to take his own life and later entered a drug rehabilitation clinic to battle an addiction to heroin. After a four-year hiatus, Depeche Mode continued onward as a trio and released 1997's Ultra, which featured the Tim Simenon-produced hits "Barrel of a Gun" and "It's No Good." A year later, the band embarked on a tour in support of their newly released hits album, The Singles 86>98. Depeche Mode played 64 shows in 18 countries for over one million fans. Each member took considerable time off after the tour's completion, and Depeche Mode would not regroup for another three years. Exciter, the band's follow-up to Ultra, was released in 2001. With 's Mark Bell at the helm, the set featured a more experimental and minimalist electronic feel, heard on singles such as "Dream On" and "I Feel Loved." Two years later, issued his debut solo album, the dark and sultry Paper Monsters. also followed suit by issuing the all-covers Counterfeit², a full-length sequel to his similarly themed 1989 EP. After supporting their solo work with respective tours of the U.S. and Europe, the bandmembers soon regrouped to record another album. Kicking off a revived late era, their 11th album, Playing the Angel, was a Top Ten hit upon its release in October 2005. Produced by Ben Hillier (, , , ) and studded with singles like "Precious" and "John the Revelator," it topped the album charts in 18 countries and went multi-platinum and/or gold in 20 markets. Depeche Mode went on to play for more than two-and-a-half-million fans worldwide, and the 2006 video release Touring the Angel: Live in Milan captured one of the band's greatest shows. After another solo effort (2007's Hourglass), the trio returned to the studio with Hillier to cap the decade with 2009's Sounds of the Universe. Depeche Mode ushered in the 2010s with their 13th studio effort, Delta Machine, which completed a trilogy of Hillier-produced albums. Mixed by longtime Depeche associate Flood, Delta Machine debuted at number two in the U.K. and peaked at number six on the U.S. Billboard 200. The concert film and album Live in Berlin (directed by Anton Corbijn from a late-2013 show) followed in November 2014. The band returned in early 2017 with their 14th studio effort, Spirit. The album's material was largely inspired by the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential election and was produced by 's James Ford (, ). Buoyed by the single "Where's the Revolution," Spirit debuted at number five on the Billboard 200. They promoted the album with a massive international tour -- their longest trek to date -- that kept them on the road until 2018. A commemorative tour documentary film, the Corbijn-helmed Spirits in the Forest, debuted onscreen in November 2019 and was later released alongside the concert album LiVE SPiRiTS. In 2020, at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns, Depeche Mode were honored as inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside , , and others. A week after that news was announced, they released a massive career retrospective box set, MODE, that collected all 14 studio albums (complete with redesigned artwork) as well as four discs' worth of non-album singles, B-sides, and bonus tracks. The minimalist package also contained a 228-page lyric and photo book. As the pandemic continued, the band got to work on their next album, the death- and mortality-focused Memento Mori. Before they could enter the studio to record, Fletcher unexpectedly passed away in May 2022 at the age of 60. Rather than disbanding, the now-duo of and carried on, releasing the bittersweet single "Ghosts Again" in February 2023. The full album arrived that March, once again with Ford as co-producer, alongside Marta Salogni (), and with () as co-writer on a handful of tracks. ~ Neil Z. Yeung & Andy Kellman, Rovi

So F’ing fiiiiire !!!! So so good. I follow them since 1984 saw 13 DM concerts in total and this one was one of the epic one. This time again, DM didn’t fail to blast their devotees to music heaven. « Never want to get down, never want to bring my feet back down on the ground »!

Absolutely amazing. I’ve seen them before a few times, but this time the emotions and the crowd were phenomenal! Really, it was fantastic to see so many happy people just for being there. Great! I can only hope that next time it will be at Wembley, as access to and from Twickenham is a nightmare.

Great show, even if Dave Gahan started with evident limits in the use of his voice. After 3/4 songs the voice went a lot better. The rythm of the show was a little discontinuous, the most recent works sounded sad and slow, probably reflecting an inner state... Great sound and lights, Gahan holds completely his audience

Après 6 ans d'absence et le décès imprévisible d'Andy Fletcher, DM revient en force avec un album épique et le Memento Mori Tour qui compte à ce jour plus de 110 dates à la tournée. J'y étais en avril, j'y retourne en novembre! There's only one way to soothe my soul!

The second-best concert of my life so far. The first was at the exhibition bandstand in Toronto in the 80s with Depeche Mode. Scotiabank Arena was the perfect spot for the concert. Maybe next time, go bigger and have it at the Rogers Centre.

Amazing as ever live even after all these years. Even while promoting a new album, Gahan and Gore know what songs their diehard fans came to hear. Plenty of their classic songs were played. The visuals and onstage antics didn’t disappoint. 5 stars!
