This wiki offers streams and downloads for all circulating recordings of Depeche Mode's extensive live career. Tour and concert information is also provided.
All circulating recordings are slowly being added, usually in batches of an entire tour. All circulating recordings from the 1980 Tour up to and including the 1990 World Violation Tour are currently streamable in your web browser and have lossless copies downloadable via torrent. In addition, all circulating recordings from the 1997 Ultra Parties and 2003 "A Night With Martin L. Gore" tours are available. There are over 460 recordings currently available.
None of these recordings contain officially or commercially released tracks. Only recordings of independent origin or recordings which had analog or digital broadcasts are available for streaming and download here. This site does not host downloads of any recordings directly, and hosts only torrent metadata files for the recordings. If you are unfamiliar with usage of torrents, please the guide here: How to download torrents.
There is also an extensive interview section featuring full transcripts and audio streams where available, as well as background information regarding each interview. There are over 410 interviews currently available.
Set lists for most tour dates are provided as well, though information is lacking for many extremely early tour dates. Other media such as ticket scans, set list sheet photos, and pro-shot news snippets are also provided, where available. There is a list of dates with unconfirmed set lists, so if you can confirm the set list of a concert, please help out by filling it in!
Do you have any audio cassette tapes, 8mm/Hi8 video tapes, or VHS tapes containing live recordings or interviews? Please contact us - see Contributing.
