Depeche Mode was the most popular synth/electro-pop band of the '80s. They reigned as kings of the club/dance scene throughout the decade and on into the '90s. The band's live show has always been the preferred method for experiencing the raw emotion and well-produced sound that is Depeche Mode. Tickets have always sold out to their shows and still do today, so you'll want to consider getting them here and now.
Lead singer David Gahan, Vince Clarke, Andrew Fletcher and Martin Gore make up the band that became Depeche Mode in the early 1980s. Their first album, Speak and Spell, in 1981 was considered part of the New Wave movement in music. Depeche Mode has been a big part of the MTV scene throughout their career, making artfully complex and emotionally driven music videos to convey the deep and evocative message in the songs that were their subject matter.
Songs like 'Policy of Truth,' 'Personal Jesus' and 'People Are People' became the anthems of a generation and spawned many Depeche Mode-influenced bands that still pop up all over the world. Their 1990 record Violator is considered one of the finest works by an electro-pop band even today. Songs of Faith and Devotion, 1993, made it to number one on the Billboard charts as did a compilation of Depeche Mode songs called Remixes 81-04.
The fact that they made number one hits is dwarfed by the fact that their live performance lends so much emotion and heart to songs like 'Enjoy the Silence' which on paper are already deep and brooding. Going to a Depeche Mode concert is a satisfying activity if only because you really get a sense of what an art form their music really is through the energy and sophistication they exhibit on stage.
