Depeche Mode rare footage from the 101 concert video: ‘A Concert for the Masses’

Archives Special – A Concert For The Masses (June 18th, 1988) from Depeche Mode on Vimeo.

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).

“Good evening, Pasadena!”
