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 »

Depeche Mode at their height.
18 March 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was one of the screaming fans on that awesome day at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena back in 1988. As a high school student, your life revolves around music, movies and school. So when Depeche Mode, along with OMD, Thomas Dolby, and Wire, came to town, my friend and I immediately got ourselves tickets. As it turned out, the concert was a blast, with strong performances by all, especially OMD and Depeche Mode.

101 captures pretty much the atmosphere and energy of the concert that day in true form. It really transports me back to that day. I also like the extraneous stuff like backstage interviews and such contained in the videos. Cool.
