Depeche Mode - Ludwigshafen, Germany - 1984

Not much to say on this one.  I only saw DM once during the Violator Tour in 1990 in Pensacola Florida.  Hearing them when they are 6 years younger, post MFtM (a turning point, I feel) and it's amazing that the deep dark voice of Dave is coming out of that scrawny little body.  It would have been fun to see them before they became the legends they are now.

This is a great soundboard recording, but I only have it at 128kbps.  That being said, it probably sounds more like a cassette tape than anything.  But, it's still a great show, and every song is an absolute classic.


  1. I've seen Mode several times, and every time they just get better and better. I'm actually in the 101 movie -- somewhere out there in the crowd at the Rose Bowl! The energy they have live is just amazing -- all of their shows I've been to have made me feel so energized and vibrant, and I can honestly say that they're one of THE BEST live bands I've ever had the pleasure of seeing/hearing.

    1. ^^^ saw DM at the Rose Bowl... inda movie... o.O

      Anyone else here suddenly filled with a sudden, completely irrational jealou rage? The kind that can only be satisfied by mauling an Angstytimelord? :D

      Oh, you lucky SOB... the DM concert of all DM concerts... *fumes mightily* You could buy a new car for the ticket prices I'd be willing to pay if we could jump in that TARDIS of yours and get press-row seats to that concert. Even if it meant being next to that infamous loud crying girl who's bawwling out the lyrics to Blasphemous Rumours.
