Delta Machine Tour - Tour Blog

A tour as big as this, there's always a lot going on. Some days, some cities there's a lot more going on than usual. We've just had a couple of those days.

Three weeks into the tour and we're back in the UK for two back-to-back sold out shows at London's O2. For all sorts of reasons London is always special. Not least because there are so many familiar faces around. Suffice to say, I'm glad I'm not involved with allocating tickets and sorting the guest list. Backstage is crazy busy, and there's barely room to catch your breathe until the band actually takes to the stage.

I missed the support band first night, but did manage to see some of Trentemøller's set the second night. He (or they, as he's got a full band with him) will be with us for a few weeks, as we hit Germany. Definitely not to be missed!

Depeche Mode were on great form both nights. Being back to back shows, they changed a substantial portion of the songs for the second show. I think 6 or 7 songs were performed for the first time since the tour started proper. They were clearly having a lot of fun with it. I'll stick up a few pictures along with this.

After the second show, and a quick load out, the crew took to the road... next stop (lemme check)... Munich!

See you out there
