Depeche Mode играли прошлой ночью, мини-концерт нескольким счастливчикам которые стали победителями Sony Music. Все происходило на репетиционной площадке в Нью-Йорке "Avatar Studios". People are People:
NYC-based photographer Jen Maler has uploaded a photo on Instagram showing an invitation card to a special (and unannounced) event. The card lists Sony's NYC office, but Jen says: "just hung out with #depechemode and 25 other people at #avatarstudios while they were rehearsing for their upcoming tour"

They took our phones, we boarded a giant tour bus (behind us in this photo) & started driving to an unknown venue, still having no idea what we had won... but knowing it was BIG! A camera crew filmed the whole adventure! Then, we arrived at DEPECHE
MODE'S PRIVATE REHEARSAL SPACE! We walked into the gorgeous wood studio & they had a bar & food set up for us! Everyone was hanging out but no band. Then Athena & I went to use the bathroom and we ran into DAVE GAHAN!!!! We were all led into a separate area where the band had already begun to play! The handful of us watched them play a set of new & old classics. Dave was was about two feet away from me as they played. At the end of the set I met him. They were rehearsing for their upcoming tour so at times they would stop & discuss how the song should be played. That was the coolest part about it! We watched the creative process happen as they discussed the songs. It felt like a dream. I still can't believe it was real!
There were only 20 winners picked out of thousands (each winner brought a guest). Apparently the band picked based on our Facebook data that they gained access to when we signed up for the presale! So bazaar!"
Lola Staar also wrote: "They are going to post photos & video on the Depeche Mode Social media in the next few days!"
They played 6 old songs and 2 news songs, including an old song never played live before!
They sounded absolutely amazing!
We met up at Sony Headquarters, our phones were checked and we were whisked away on a bus (Get on Board!) to a secret location. There was a small reception room off a recording studio where the album was playing, we heard about 3 new songs plus WTR. All tracks sounded like bluesy electronic, mellow. We liked it and danced to the vibe.
We were brought into the rehearsal studio with the band right in front of us. I stood a few feet in front of Mart and Dave. We screamed and danced. Dave said a few words to greet us. It was a real rehearsal and everyone made comments to the sound guys during breaks, to raise levels etc. Martin played 4 different guitars and keyboards.
Barrel of a Gun
A Pain that I'm Used To
In Your Room (album version! Dave even said, the album version!)
World in my Eyes
New Song (we think Cover Me seemed like a Dave song)
There was a film crew filming us and asking for commentary, they may release a clip in a day or two.
PS My: "Scum" и "Cover Me" как обертка вкуснятины.
"World In My Eyes" intro - это интересно.
Thank you best friends Boeriu and Sorin.
