DEPECHE MODE: LIVE AT THE ROSE BOWL 1988
Genre: Music Concert
If you are a Depeche Mode fan then you already know that June 18th, 1988 was a HUGE day for new wave/alternative/electronic music. It was the day that Depeche Mode – against all the odds – sold out the legendary Rose Bowl in Pasadena. This show contains the uninterrupted Rose Bowl show, including the plaintive “Blasphemous Rumours,” the exultant drama of “Stripped,” and the dreamy “Somebody”. Originally a product of Britain’s new romantic movement, Depeche Mode ended up becoming the quintessential electro pop band of the 1980s. One of the first acts to establish a musical identity based completely around the use of synthesizers, they began their existence as a bouncy dance-pop outfit but gradually developed a darker, more dramatic sound that ultimately positioned them as one of the most successful alternative bands of their era.
