Depeche Mode

We got last minute tickets (the day of) to see Depeche Mode at the Hollywood Bowl. We really lucked out with great seats in the terrace section. They put on a fantastic show for a sold out crowd!!! Peter Bjorn and John opened the evening for this legendary British band. The band played many of their popular hits, such as “Personal Jesus,” "Enjoy The Silence," “Question of Time,” and “Walking in My Shoes.” David Gahan sounded great!!!

Depeche Mode also played their newer songs, with people standing and dancing to “Wrong.” Keyboardist/guitarist/songwriter Martin Gore (dressed in a flashy silver sequin suit) also sang lead on a handful of tunes, including the new song 'Jezebel' and a moving rendition of 'Somebody', which the band saved for their first encore.
The Bowl was packed and the audience sang along with every lyric, danced with every beat.
The two did a duet on the appropriately-named closer "Waiting for the Night," sending us off into the dark. Awesome show!

Cool! I was the biggest DM fan back in the day - saw them twice.
Peter Bjorn & John would be fun to see too.
