Depeche Mode

“Of all the bright-eyed groups from the bushy-tailed class of 1982 British New Wavers, few would have picked Depeche Mode as the one still selling out multiple nights at Madison Square Garden 27 years down the road….

…And then there’s Gahan. Though he’s been forced to cancel some shows due to a bout with gastroenteritis and tearing a calf muscle onstage in Spain […and cancer], he sashayed and posed and spun across the stage without a care in the world. His stage performance has been tweaked, just like Depeche Mode’s music, all for the better.
Instead of picking up the mic stand and whirling like a dervish, Gahan now spins in moderation and he occasionally tangos with the stand or makes broad ballroom moves like he was training for “Dancing With the Stars.” His vocals are different as well, giving a sweeter twist to “Wrong” and a broader snarl to “I Feel You,” which opened as a blues number. He even threw some Michael Jackson-esque “hee-hee hees” into “Strangelove.”
Yes, you read that right. Who knows what Depeche Mode will think of next?” [Newsday]

Peter Bjorn and John opened the show and then played a gig at Cake Shop after midnight. They do it again at MSG tonight (8/4). More pictures from last night (8/3), and the DM setlist, below….
