Fans have wanted a good recording of this tour for over a decade, but that has been virtually impossible to come by. While audience recording bootlegs (of fluctuating quality) have surfaced of this tour, there has never been anything of true quality that has been available to the fans.
While on a week break in England (in 2002), I (the webmaster) raided the band's office in London. Among the treasures discovered was a videotape with a very simple, hand-written label ("Dodgers 080490"). Dust covered, and sitting in the office since the end of the tour, this tape would have surely been lost and/or forgotten, if I had not "borrowed" it from the offices.
The video featured here was recorded "live to tape". All effects, camera changes, and recorded audio was recorded in a raw, "one take" mix. As such, some camera angles, and audio flaws, might pop up from time to time. For such a historic document, we don't think the occasional flaw (or "video toaster" effect) will distract from the performances.
Voted by you, the fans, as the most desired live concert in the Archives Concert Series, here are excerpts from the World Violation Tour, exclusively on depeche mode dot com.
SPECIAL NOTE: The audio for these clips is a raw, unmixed soundboard feed.
