In 1998, KROQ FM in Los Angeles succeeded in doing something they had not been able to do for many years. They got Depeche Mode to headline their "Acoustic Christmas" concert.
This show was a shorter version of their "Singles Tour" set. Among the highlights are a stripped down rendition of "Enjoy The Silence", and Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins doing guest guitar and vocal work on "Never Let Me Down Again".
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. Because of the nature of soundboard recordings, the crowd is sometimes not audible when you would expect them to be. For such a historic document, we don't think the occasional flaw (or "video toaster" effect) will distract from the performances.
SPECIAL NOTE: The audio for these clips is taken from a raw, unmixed soundboard feed.
