Strangelove–The DEPECHE MODE Experience
Internationally-touring pohenom Strangelove–The DEPECHE MODE Experience delivers a career spanning, pitch perfect “best of” concert that transports the listener through time and touches on several key points in Depeche Mode’s 40+ year career. Songs from throughout the Depeche canon are lovingly recreated; from favorites on DM’s debut Speak and Spell to the newest fare from ‘Mode’s latest- 2023’s “Memento Mori”. No detail of STRANGELOVE’s presentation has been overlooked. The visual presentation with stage set pieces and in-show costume changes reflect different eras of Depeche Mode’s story.
DEPECHE MODE’S MARTIN GORE ON STRANGELOVE-THE DEPECHE MODE EXPERIENCE: “They do it to such fine detail that’s it’s scary. They play to very big crowds. They have videos that they’ve made, screens behind them, it’s like a full on production.”
Temptation – a tribute to New Order
New Order was born from the remains of post-punk pioneers Joy Division following the suicide of their frontman Ian Curtis. Combining rock with electronica, the Manchester band would go on to become one of the most influential bands of all time. They’re hit ‘Blue Monday’ still remains the top selling 12” single of all time and a club favorite.
Temptation has performed internationally and captures the sound of New Order and brings an energy to the live performance that keeps clubs packed and people dancing. Every effort has been taken to ensure that the sound and legacy of the band is treated with the upmost respect and accuracy. So tell me…how do you feel?
Electric Duke (tribute to David Bowie from UK)
UK-born Electric Duke frontman, Julian Shah-Tayler, has collaborated with several of David Bowie’s band musicians (on his Grammy-nominated original music albums, as well as Bowie material) and effortlessly channels the voice, look, mannerisms and zeitgeist of the Thin White Duke.
