Depeche Mode - Touring the Angel

by Thorendal

Yes, well this weekend involved the concert with Depeche Mode in Parken. And it was a blast.
It was amazing to see so many people - there were people all over!

Parken once again proved that it is not a really good place as a concert arena. First of all the sound level was disappointing - not at all loud enough. When I go to a concert I want to be the one who decides if it is necessary to use ear plugs. And Saturday’s sound level was just not high enough.
Secondly the biggest screen didn’t work! They tried and had to turn it off - that is just not ok what so ever! I would think that it does not take a hole team of engineers to make a monitor work - and my guess would be that they have tried it before. So what went wrong - very disappointing!

The band didn’t talk very much - maybe that was ok, but to my likings it was a little too little chat with the audience.

But when that is said it was an amazing concert. I am actually not aware of how long the concert was. Rarely it feels like long enough which was the case here as well. I had seen a playlist from one of thier concerts somewhere else on this tour, so I had a pretty good idea of what they had planned to play for us. Mainly old songs, which is definitely the ones I like the most. There are a few songs from last few albums which are “ok”, but besides those I think Depeche Mode has become fairly boring. But the old stuff rocks!

The beer queues were too long, and they have a bizarre system for their stalls. But we managed and so we had fantastic music in our ears, fantastic friends around, and lots of beer! Woohoo!

Thanks to my sister, Malene, Mette, Mette, Henriette, Niels Kristian, and Nanna for a fantastisk evening out!
