Hot… Hot… Hot…
Reviewing the show, Joe Gross wrote at austin360.com:
From the moment Depeche Mode walks out on stage Friday night at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, a co-headliner with Muse, who is playing at the other end of the park, you are reminded that the three core musicians have been a stadium act, since the Reagan administration.
Baritone singer/self-described stripper Dave Gahan, guitarist/songwriter/tenor singer Martin Gore and guy-who-hangs-out-behind-a-synth-but-is-actually-their-business-manager Andrew Fletcher have been a recording band for more than 33 years…
Gahan is in terrific physical shape, maybe the best of his career, still preening and spinning with the mic stand and shaking his tail like the stripper he claims to be. Guyliner on his eyes, no shirt on his back, that dude absolutely owns the stage. And neither has lost his voice; Gahan’s baritone is still rich and vibrant. Gore’s torchy tenor still sounds like he should be singing in a cabaret…
Gore played guitar for most of the set; the music sometimes veered into straight-ahead rock (“A Pain…”) while “Personal Jesus” got a smart, slow-blues intro. Encoring with their 1980(!) bubble-pop smash “Just Can’t Get Enough,” the 1993 semi-grunge hit “I Feel You,” and the 1987 is-this-song-about-gay-guys-or-what classic “Never Let Me Down Again” made for a near-perfect festival set. Total pros, total pop stars, total strippers.
Thanks to ligushka for recording and sharing the tracks at Dime.
