Trivia

The Depeche Mode fan tradition of the audience waving their arms in unison during the song "Never Let Me Down Again" started with the Pasadena performance shown in "101". In 2006, on the "Music For The Masses" documentary DVD, Martin Gore said: "Dave [Gahan] often says that he doesn't know how he came up with the idea, when we were playing at the Rose Bowl. But he just, like, started waving his arms in the air; and, uh, you know, the whole crowd, just...in unison, started doing it back." See more »

'a definite must-see'
21 January 2000 | by (New Orleans, United States of America) – See all my reviews

I've watched my copy of 'Depeche Mode 101' so many times I've had to replace my videotape at least twice. All of the band members look their rip-rocking best, but if any of the members could give David Gahan a sizable competition for 'Best-Looking Musician In A Band,' that title would have to go to their former keyboardist Alan Wilder since he's the most striking mixture of rock-and-roll decadence and postmodern beauty I've ever seen on screen and in concert. Incidentally, I've seen Depeche Mode in concert three times and I still try to outvoice their lead singer! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend '101' or any of their other concert videos. And one more thing: check out how sexy Alan looks in that leather bomber jacket and jeans and put him side by side with David and see which one you think looks the better in your opinion. And as for the tour bus double-bed scene, that is one of the funniest outtakes of the movie.
