CURATE THE ULTIMATE DEPECHE MODE SETLIST


A favourite blog of mine, and one that should be a favourite of yours, Halo - The Violator Book has come up with a clever idea ahead of Depeche Mode's much anticipated London Stadium gig on June 3rd. What 20 Depeche Mode songs would you want to hear live? What would be your ultimate setlist? Well, here's your chance to make that decision. Do you want to hear a set filled with classics? Perhaps you want The Great Outdoors to kick things off, leading neatly into A Photograph Of You before turning up the heat with Hole To Feed? (Seriously - if that is you, please don't vote). Let us know, either via the contact details in the Halo blog below, or by leaving a comment here or via Twitter - @almostprdalmosthttps://twitter.com/almostprdalmost

Thanks to Kevin May at Halo for setting this up. Good luck counting the votes!

By their own admission, Depeche Mode have a thorough and reasonably democratic process that they go through to create a tour set list.

And, yet, as the catalogue gets bigger with each new album, this mechanism presumably gets harder every time.

But fear not, gents.

In conjunction with the London Stadium, where the band play on Saturday 3 June, we thought instead it would be fun (and intriguing!) to get the fanbase to help out the boys with their dilemma instead.

Obviously, the Global Spirit Tour is already underway and the set list locked down – but ahead of what will be a landmark gig in the UK for Depeche, let’s find out what the masses would love to hear if the band had a clean slate again… just for the homecoming show.

Here on the HALO website and elsewhere, such as the Almost Predictable. Almost blog, we’ll be collecting the TWENTY songs you want to hear.

The full Depeche Mode catalogue is listed below for reference 

Remember, this isn’t necessarily a list of your own favourite songs (though it may well be), but the TWENTY songs that you think should be on the ultimate Depeche Mode set list – tracks that would help create the best gig ever.

You can leave your list of TWENTY in the comments below, on the HALO Facebook page or via email.

The results will be posted on the London Stadium website and other participating sites in the days before the gig.

With many thanks in advance for your suggestions 

The full discography is listed below.
