Depeche Mode's tribute to Bowie
Having opened their Spirit tour already, Depeche Mode made headlines with their cover of David Bowie's legendary track "Heroes". With lead singer Dave Gahan admitting in an interview with Rolling Stone how hard he took Bowie's death, with their kids attending the same school. Gahan was quoted as saying "One of the things I was most regrettable about was that I had never really gone up to him at any time I'd seem him in passing and said, 'You know, David, I bump into you once in a while, but I've never told you how much your music has meant to me'." Suffice to say, the covered track went down a storm in their opening show at Stockholm. With the band playing half of the new album, alongside a number of Depeche Mode classics.
Depeche Mode biography
This critically acclaimed band's humble beginnings can be traced back to 1977 when school friends Andy Fletcher and Vince Clarke set out to create music influenced by their teenage heroes The Cure. Signed to Mute Records, they struck gold when their third effort "Just Can't Get Enough" hit the UK Top Ten and wrote the band into the British music history books. Their run of success since has been almost unrivalled, with numerous number one albums, multiple Brits, Grammy nods and an influence that has touched innumerable artists, genres and musical movements.
Now considered one of the world's biggest bands, the trio has played to a combined crowd of more than 30 million over the past three decades. With new generations discovering their music every day, their tickets have never been in higher demand. Don't miss your chance to experience the band live with Depeche Mode tickets at StubHub.
