Depeche Mode belongs to a select premiere league of super groups who have survived from the early 1980s with their ideals, creative vision and core members intact. Formed in 1981, Depeche Mode - Martin Gore, Dave Gahan and Andy 'Fletch' Fletcher - continue to win critical and commercial acclaim across the world both in the studio and on the road. All of the band’s 11 studio albums have reached the Top Ten in not only the UK and USA but 20 plus countries around the world including Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, and Belgium. Since their inception, Depeche Mode’s live shows continue to be a must-see attraction, with the group playing to 2.8 million people across 31 countries on their last tour alone.
Neil Tennant (55), and Chris Lowe (49) took me for a ride of 28 years of unique English-Electronic-Synthpop music in unmatchable gothlike attire. 10:30 pm, and the steps of the Constitution Hall, crowded with these 40+ worshipers of the anti-rock British duo made me think: Did I just wake up in Berlin? Yes, I had just experienced the most visually enticing concert of the Summer... my all time favorite "Pet Shop Boys".
El concierto de Pet Shop Boys ( al cual fui, una vez mas, invitado dos horas antes de que comenzara...sorpresa total) ha sido una experiencia visual , cúbica, casi sublime. Bailamos, cantamos, brincamos y quedamos afónicos de tanto aclamar a este dúo británico excepcional, que ha sido uno de mis favoritos desde que salieron a principio de los '80s. Lo cantaron todo...casi dos horas de éxitos: unos mezclados, otros en remix, y los mán importantes fueron interpretados con fidelidad.
A ratos me sentía en 1989, a ratos me sentía en Londres...The West End.
