Depeche Mode My Spirited Tour of Italy: The emotional climax...

12/08/2017 - 22:30
My Spirited Tour of Italy: The emotional climax of the concert that we all have waited for, "Never Let Me Down Again". And all 60,000 of us at the Stadio Olimpico waved our arms in unison with Dave and Martin and Fletch. We are one in this glorious shared transcendent moment. It was an incredible journey and being a part of the world community of Depeche Mode while in the Eternal City are memories that I will cherish forever. Thank everyone, and hope you enjoyed my day.

Depeche Mode What is your biggest experience related to the band?

In 2013 on Delta Machine Tour, I was able to fulfill one of my dreams, and live an unforgettable experience. I traveled thousands of kilometers from Argentina to Italy only for the concerts in Milan and Rome, with my Argentine flag signed by hundreds of fans of my country and many others from different parts of the world that I met during those shows. In front of the stage in the first row, and this photo taken from the cover of the official website of the band.

Depeche Mode What song got you hooked?

For me, the first song I recall hearing was Policy of Truth. I was instantly intrigued with the sound and went on to listen to a scattered variety of their hits. Soon, I had listened to their entire discography. Depeche Mode quickly became my favorite band, and the rich variety has allowed for endless enjoyment. It is this diversity in sounds, styles, and moods that has allowed me to hook many of my friends onto the band’s music because there is a Depeche Mode for everyone! Pictured is part of my ever-growing vinyl collection.

Depeche Mode If you had asked me when I was a kid if I thought I was going to get a tattoo, I would have sharply answered “no”. But it didn’t take long for those plans to change. Pictured is me, freshly inked on the day I got my first tattoo. I wanted something that represented my love for Depeche Mode in a unique, fresh way and this fusion of the Violator & Music For The Masses cover art along with mention of perhaps my favorite hit, Enjoy the Silence, hit the mark. The beauty of Depeche Mode’s associated artwork made it incredibly easy to create something meaningful.

Depeche Mode Seeing my heroes on stage:
I’ve read quite a bit about the band, as well as spent my fair share of time watching live recordings… and rightly got the impression that DM puts on a great show! After following the rumors of a new album & tour for months, and waiting with tickets for even longer, my dreams came true when I finally got my opportunity to see them during this tour in Vancouver. Save for being pulled backstage to meet the band, all of my hopes for the show were met and exceeded. The band was awesome live, and seeing my heroes on stage for the first time was a great experience!

Depeche Mode How amazing of a coincidence it was that the day after I saw Depeche Mode for my first time, I received notice of my selection for this takeover event. My name is Cain Towers, and I’m honored to speak here today. Depeche Mode’s music has become a huge part of my life, serving as a soundtrack for my daily living, and has influenced my own art and person immensely… being there anytime for celebration or to lift me out of slumps. I hope to use today to tell more of my story while speaking about why DM is so unique!

Depeche Mode Hello DM Followers,
 
Here is Norman from Berlin, a 33-year old lifelong Depeche Mode fan living in Berlin. DM are my earliest musical memory and manage to remain the only band I stuck with ever since I was 4/5  years old. They had a crucial impact on my musical socialization, love for music and partly also the perspective on how I see things in general. I'm a passionate music lover that's also running a little digital music zine called Nothing But Hope And Passion. Expect a few personal stories about me and the music that gave me and us so much.

Depeche Mode And what about the concert (Budapest, May, 2017)? There was a big show with excellent music! It was good to see my sons enjoying the concert and the music. At the end of the concert, my son said: "There is a problem: the end of the concert. We would like to listen more and more and more DM. No problem, Dad. We enjoy the silence!" :-)

Depeche Mode My two sons gave me the biggest surprise for my 46th Birthday. With the help of my partner, they actually performed a 1-hour Depeche Mode concert in my home. It was a great show, and there I was, watching, listening and smiling, trying to hold my tears back. After that, it was our turn to give them a surprise: they attended the concert along with us in Budapest in May 2017 and we had the experience of dancing and enjoying the show fully together.

Depeche Mode When it’s not Halloween, I do different crafts and find inspiration through DM's lyrics. I’m currently embroidering lyrics from “So Much Love." I’ve been working on it for 2 months - I estimate it won't be done until February, but this is what I have so far.

There is so much love in me - for lots of things, but in this case, Halloween and Depeche Mode - and I cannot thank you enough for this opportunity to share some of it with you.

Depeche Mode There’s not too much Halloween decor inspiration you can get from Depeche Mode, though their fondness for the colors black, red, and purple nicely go with the Halloween aesthetic.

Since pumpkins can be carved however you wish, they are perfect for expressing your love for DM. This is the pumpkin I carved this year.

Are there any other DM pumpkins out there?

Depeche Mode Need a Halloween costume idea? 
If you want something obscure like “Touring the Angel Martin Gore,” you could always look for inspiration from Depeche Mode’s music videos, especially those where the band is dressed up in something out of the ordinary. Here are some of my favorite costume-worthy outfits - "Enjoy the Silence," "Halo," "Barrel of a Gun," "Suffer Well," and "It's No Good."  What’s your favorite? Is there a DM music video you’ve found fashion/costume inspiration from?

Depeche Mode Have you ever dressed up as one of the boys?

My first experience seeing a Depeche Mode concert was through the Touring the Angel DVD. I woke up early on weekdays so I could watch some of it before I left for school, over and over. I have a habit of making elaborate Halloween costumes. In 2012, I decided I wanted to be Martin Gore, specifically from that tour. 
 
I already had all of the black clothing on hand, I bought the wings, knitted the hat, painted my nails black, put on makeup and glitter, and ta-da! I became Martin. It's one of my favorite costumes.

Depeche Mode Hi there! I’m Sam. I became a Depeche Mode fan around 2001 at the age of 12 and been obsessed ever since! My favorite song/album is “Black Celebration,” and I have seen them twice in Chicago - in 2013 and 2017. I listen to them daily and they inspire me to create wonderful things.

I also happen to love Halloween. That’s one of the reasons DM’s music appeals to me - it’s dark, beautiful, and sometimes downright haunting. It just makes sense to combine my love of DM with my love for Halloween, and I’m so happy to share that with you today.

Depeche Mode The experience from different concerts and tours is always unique. Every song has a new expression in every tour. In Your Room was best in -93. I Feel You was best in -05. Never let me Down again was best in Berlin -09 with 70,000 waving hands. Hope you enjoy these photos I took from the Exciter Tour in Stockholm 2001. Depeche Mode is visual in a way that make the photographers work easy. Which tours have been special for you?

Depeche Mode Do you remember your first gig?
The first time I went to a Depeche Mode concert was in Gothenburg 1998 with my friend Åsa. During the first three songs I was photographing in the pit right next to the stage. I had a "professional mode" focusing on getting great photos but when they started the fourth song, It's No Good, and I was leaving the pit the "fan mode" just struck me.

Depeche Mode What was your first DM concert like?
As a new fan the first and only show I attended so far took place in Warsaw, Poland on July 21, 2017. I went there with my cousin Damian who is also my godfather (the biggest DM fan in the world btw) and his daughter Julia. There we are on the photo, standing in the first row! Incredible. It was the best gig in my life so far and I doubt any other can beat that experience. Over 50 thousand people singing and clapping hands together, no words can describe that. The quality of sound beat my expectations, I was speechless. I have never heard better live music. Fantastic!

Depeche Mode Why do you love DM music?
I love the mystery in music, darkness as well. There is nothing better than meaningful and deep music that is also very catchy and easy to listen for everybody. The rough and simple but very addictive guitar riffs, the genius electronic music mixed with rock. This band has some of the wisest and most beautiful lyrics ever written, even the biggest hit Enjoy The Silence. That's the secret of Depeche Mode's success, they have something for everyone. This music connects many types of people. There are not many bands in the history that could achieve it.
