Depeche Mode @ Revel - 8/30/2013
Depeche Mode @ Revel - 8/30/2013

"Frontman Dave Gahan played with his mic and shared it with the crowd on a few occasions while busting some moves. Gahan didn't remain the center of attention for the entire show though as Martin Gore, the band's principal songwriter, got up and shared vocal duties on a handful of songs. He even sang a few on his own, including a haunting version of "Higher Love." Fans exploded in applause when the band performed popular numbers like "Enjoy the Silence" and "Personal Jesus." However, the biggest highlight of the night was when they returned to the stage for an encore and played their synth-pop classic "Just Can't Enough." It was a wonderful throwback for older fans and a nice counter to the outfit's gloomier songs. In a way the band's setlist came full circle that night, some of the new with some of the old - something for everyone." [BV Chicago]
Not long after hitting Chicago, Depeche Mode brought their North American tour to Ovation Hall at Revel Casino in Atlantic City last night (in 2009 they played the Borgata). Pictures, the setlist and video from the NJ show are in this post.

Depeche Mode continue their tour this weekend in Canada before returning to the NYC-area to play both Barclays Center and Jones Beach with tour-mate Bat For Lashes who didn't play with them in Atlantic City and headlined Webster Hall in NYC the same night instead. All tour dates are listed with the rest of the AC pictures and stuff below...

New tour. Same old setlist every show with a few new tunes added. They are starting to show their age.

12:44 I agree that they should shake up their older songs they play...still a great show!

Excellent review and pics....Hubby and I were at the show at Revel and it was such a killer show. We loved it. This was my first DM concert and will not be my last.

Cheers!

Soraya ;)

DM rules.
Always will.

DM are pretty much ONLY band from the 80's that still plays and sells out arenas aside from U2.

Nice on focusing the camera equally between Dave and Martin! A little more Fletch next time, hehehe. Thanks for sharing :)
