Håkan Tendell reports after concert: Depeche Mode, Scandinavium, Göteborg 2010

Not many bands in the world would dare to begin a concert with a slowie. Depeche Mode does it with ”In Chains”, knowing/guessing that at the end of the day they will leave the arena with thousands of enthusiastic people screaming and shouting anyway.

During ”In Chains” Dave Gahan is dancing as if he has an iPod and listens to James Brown. It looks really strange, but it’s a good sign, though. You can tell that this will be a night to remember. Before the second song ”Wrong”, Dave throws his jacket off.

Fourth song: ”Walking in my shoes”. Huge sing-along.

Fifth song: ”It’s No Good”. A lot of people who has seats stand up and begin to dance.

Nr 6: ”A Question of Time”. The arena explodes and Dave sets a new unofficial world record in spin-arounds.

Later in the concert, as a second solo performance, Martin L. Gore does ”Home”. It’s a version, both strong and fragile, and together with the audience it creates an electric atmosphere. You can really feel his heart when he sings ”… finally I’ve found that I belong, feels like home …”

More songs follow and the first part of the show ends with ”Never Let Me Down Again” and its compulsory waving and chanting among the masses.

The encore part begins with ”Dressed in Black”. Then there is either ”Behind the Wheel” or ”Stripped”. I can’t recall in which order. I was so excited. You know, at the intro of ”Stripped” I thought I was in Heaven, not just because of the nice woman, Linda from Värmland, who stood right next to me, but because the intro of ”Stripped” is such a perfectly arranged intro. There can never be a better way to begin a song. I love it.

Last song: ”Personal Jesus”. During the song the whole arena is wild. Totally. Wild.

Then, Andy Fletcher and the other guys leave the stage. Dave Gahan returns quickly for a last good-bye. Then he walks. I see his back passing through lights and shadow, lights and shadow. He walks off the stage at some stairs and disappears from my eyes.

There is screaming and shouting for minutes.

Well … Depeche Mode are pretty good at what they do.

The following clips that I’ve found from the concert in Scandinavium shows ”A Question of Time”, ”Enjoy the Silence” and ”Never Let Me Down Again”:

If only YouTube had been available during the last six thousands years of human history. How much we would know about what really took place …

History can be written down at the same time as things happens. Very good.

History can be written down a couple of hours later. Rather good.

History can be written down the next day. Good.

Or many decades later, based on rumours of what happened. It’s no good.

  12. Today, I attended the beachfront with my personal kids. I observed a ocean shell as well as gave that to our 4 12 months old child and said You are able to hear your ocean if you put this in your ear. She placed the shell to your ex ear and screamed. There ended up being a hermit crab inside and it pinched the woman’s ear. She in no way wants to return! LoL I understand this is completely off theme but I had created to tell someone!
