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 »

Quotes

Alan Wilder: [imitating Dave's voice] Hello Pasadena!
David Gahan: I don't think I should say "Pasadena". I've been thinking about it for days, it's been playing on my mind.
Alan Wilder: [puts his hand on Dave's shoulder] Dave, I wouldn't let it play on your mind.
David Gahan: [chuckles] I bet I should say, "Good evening... everybody." No, that sounds terrible.

good evening PASADENA!!!

I got this DVD about a year ago and the CD about three years ago....WOW.

DM fans will not be disappointed . This concert is the only one live music show where I thought this is ahead of its time. The music is performed amazingly (probably because there was no drug influence in the band at that time), and the atmosphere in the crowds of thousands can be felt even through the cameras!

The best songs performed by far in this concert are probably 'Stripped','Never let me down' and the famous 'Just can't get enough', performed in the way it should be with crowd involvement and full on synth with the simple drum beat!

This is Depeche Mode's at the time at very best!
