A Concert For The Masses
June 18th, 1988
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).
Pulled from some very rare audio and video sources, we present a small look back at the day of June 18th, 1988.
“Good evening, Pasadena!”
Thanks to our friends at the DM TV Archives for letting us use some of their clips.
