okay guys... so you all know how much i love the depeche mode, right?
i can die happy now.
it was so amazing, you don't even understand.
here's how it went down:
we got to superpages between 6 and 6:30.
peter bjorn and john (or pb&j as we like to call them) started at 7:45.
they played for about 30-45 minutes and then people started setting the stage for depeche mode.
at like 8:50 or so, the lights
came on for depeche mode.
at 9:10 depeche mode finally came out!
they opened with "in chains
", and "hole to feed
" and then went into "walking in my shoes
."SIDENOTE: their screens are AMAZING. unlike anything i've ever seen.
the screen for "in chains
" had a young boy and an old man and over the course of the song, they switched places. and in the globe there was a woman powerwalking in place and she shed her business suit down to workout clothes and then went the opposite way.
" didn't really have anything special, just the band on screen in a contrasting fashion.
"hole to feed
" had the band on screen like 300 times.
"walking in my shoes
" had a crow in the desert flying and walking around and a lizard eye in the globe looking around and blinking. at the end of the song, the crow flew away.
they then played "it's no good
" followed by "a question of time
"it's no good
" was just the band on screen again, and i think "a question of time
" was too.
i recorded part of "precious
" but i just couldn't hold the camera up anymore.
" was something being typed on a typewriter and the globe was the ball with the letters on it.
then they played "fly on the windscreen
" followed by martin singing "jezebel
" alone on the stage.
"fly on the windscreen
" had each band member in a circle and some other random circles.
" had two angles of martin on screen and the globe was like a half-moon kind of thing...
then... you guys... you don't even know... martin started playing "judas
" and i started CRYING because i didn't know they were gonna play it.
i tried to record it but you can hear me loudly sobbing in the 32 seconds i actually got of it.
i honestly can't remember what the screen was for "judas
"... i remember it was red.
then dave came back and they played "miles away/the truth is
" and then "POLICY OF TRUTH
" FUCK YEAH.
for "miles away
", the globe was... a globe and the screen was like space... with stars and stuff.
"policy of truth
" was one of the best... the globe was filled with balls and they'd drop and bounce all over the screen.
"in your room
" and "i feel you
" from the most sexual album everrrrr were next.
i can't remember the screens for those either.
then they closed with a 6 minute rendition of "enjoy the silence
" followed by the omnipresent "never let me down again
" and i was sooooo excited i finally got to do the arm-wave thing!!!
"enjoy the silence
" had the band in spacesuits (obviously awesome) and they would switch places and one person's head would be in the globe.
then they left...
then they came back...
martin sang "somebody
" and it was beautiful.
i think the screen was just martin being a bamf.
then dave came out and THEY SANG "STRIPPED
" OMG and i actually didn't cry like i thought i was going to because i was videoing it and it's impossible to hold the camera steady and cry at the same time.
" was just the band on the screen again.
then they played "behind the wheel
" and left again.
i don't remember this either but i think it was just the band. i remember everything special, so this must've just been normal.
and they came back again and had an AMAZING performance of "personal jesus
" and it was great.
" was AWESOME and alternated between the band members jamming (martin headbanging, david raising his arms and dancing, fletch being fletch) and some chick in a shiny black sequin skirt dancing (i would die to be that chick).
and they finally closed the show with "waiting for the night
" and it was stripped down and beautiful and the globe on the screen was a disco ball spinning around and it was sooo pretty and i did NOT want it to be over...photos/videos: http://stefny.tumblr.com/
