Depeche Mode – Tour Of The Universe: Barcelona 20/21.11.09

Rating: NNNN


Judging by their ecstatic fans, a Depeche Mode concert is more of a religious experience than your average stadium event. Sure, the English new wave purveyors are looking a little rough after 30 years, but they’ve mastered the dying art of rock and roll sainthood.

Captured by director Russell Thomas on the Barcelona stop of their Tour Of The Universe, the band earn deity status with this double CD/DVD, 259 minutes of non-stop synth-pop splendour. Newer tracks like Wrong sit comfortably between three decades’ worth of hits, all delivered with relentless energy.

Bonus features include films by Anton Corbijn, who’s maintained a faithful working relationship with DM since the 80s.
