DEPECHE MODE CONCERT: Tampa, FL

depeche modeTonight, Depeche Mode will be performing live at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheater. This is their second appearance in the Tampa Bay area in the last four years. Perhaps the greatest Synth-pop group of all-time will be performing their greatest hits along with selected cuts from their new CD, Delta Machine. The backdrop stage features black-and-white Anton Corbijn films on screens behind the band, keyed to the songs’ emotions. Midway through the set, Dave Gahan slows things down with a solo acoustic break featuring versions of “Home” and “But Not Tonight” accompanied only by a keyboard and a spotlight.

depecheYou can’t turn on a Classic Rock radio station and not be bombarded with iconic 80’s songs including Personal Jesus, Enjoy The Silence, Just Can’t Get Enough, and The Policy Of Truth. But younger listeners have gravitated to their new material. “Heaven” conjures up images of the Beatles and “Soothe My Soul” features a soulful, sexy groove that should keep the momentum flowing. Here is the setlist from their September 12th show in Atlanta, GA.
