Echo Awards - March 4th

What a way to end a successful tour - with a win at the Echo Awards in Berlin. Depeche Mode clinched the title of Best International Band from U2, Razorlight and the Black Eyed Peas!

A couple of us on the team flew in to Berlin 4 days in advance of the show to take in the sights and prepare for the ceremony. Along with Martin, we check out the Holocaust memorial (very moving) and the modern art museum (fantastic). Andy flew in the day of the show after having spent just a few days back home. They were both in good spirits and excited to end a 10-month run on such a high note. The nomination itself was thrilling but when Paul Van Dyke named Depeche Mode as the winner of the award, we were all overwhelmed.

Backstage was the usual award show scene: performing artists; entourages; make up; security. But unlike other award shows, the atmosphere was quite mellow and the boys enjoyed themselves in the Wii Lounge before heading off to be seated for the show. Also, free candy. There was free candy, which is pretty much awesome.

Check out some images taken of the night, taken by Daniel Miller and Anne Haffmans.

Until next time, folks. It's been real.
