Depeche Mode at the Hollywood Bowl

Concert Pictures in Electronic

Depeche Mode
Venue: the Hollywood Bowl – City: Hollywood – Date: October 12th, 2017

As a long-time Depeche Mode fan – there are my favorite band along the Jesus and Mary Chain – I’ve had the chance to see Depeche Mode live whenever they were in town and this first night of 4 shows at the Hollywood Bowl featured one of their best live set lists.

Kicking off with the politically-charged “Going Backwards” from their latest album Spirit, they then followed with a flawless succession of 80’s/90’s hits intertwined with the best of their 2000+ era.  While I was particularly thrilled with moody entries such as “In Your Room”, “World in My Eyes”, “Stripped” and  “A Question of Lust”, new songs such as “So Much Love” and “Cover Me” easily found their place among classics.

Even though “Enjoy the Silence” and “Never Let Me Down Again” were undoubtedly highlights for the crowd, the band also seemed to want to prove they could still rock electronic music, which they successfully achieved closing with “I Feel You” and “Personal Jesus”.

Here’s the full set list:

So Much Love
Barrel of a Gun
A Pain That I’m Used To

In Your Room
