For the 101st show of the Music For The Masses Tour, the band played a special stadium show at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. Coinciding with the 10th anniversary of KROQ FM (a long time supporter of the band), the all-day concert featured Wire, Thomas Dolby and O.M.D. as the opening acts.
The Depeche Mode portion of this legendary show was recorded, both audio (the "101" album) and video (the D.A. Pennebaker directed "101" documentary film).
Today 25 years ago, a legendary Depeche Mode concert heppened. This is a quote from Depeche Mode website:

These shirts aren't mine, my favorite is the one in the middle which is from "Different Light" era. I'd pick the tye dye one if I were to attend summer festivals tho ;) And the one on the right is the white version of their "Everything" tour tee.
There's more to (the) Bangles than "Eternal Flame". That song isn't my cup of tea, but it's a hit and become my friends' "must-song / guilty pleasure" at karaoke sessions, ha! The rest of their songs are better, they deliver great power pop / paisley underground tunes.
