DEPECHE MODE - THE GLOBAL SPIRIT TOUR PROJECT



I'm sure this is me biting off more than I can chew, but what I'm wanting to do is to have a review of every gig on the Global Spirit tour up on the blog, so that we have a record of each gig.

As I'm only going to two concerts on the first leg I'll need a bit of help and that's where you come in. What I'm looking for are volunteers to write a review of the gig they were at. Assuming there's enough interest, I'll pick one person for each show and their review will be up within a couple of days of the gig taking place. It doesn't have to be an essay or a work of art - it just needs to be something talking about the gig and what you enjoyed about it.

Fancy that? If you do, contact me on the blog's Facebook page or via Twitter:

There's no pay, no medical plan and no form of reward at all other than the warm glow you'll get for angering the Black Swarm with your views on Policy Of Truth etc. You will of course get full credit (I don't want the blame for what you say!) and links to whatever of your social media you want to expose the world to.
