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.

The Definitive Rock Show!
11 July 2005 | by SpuzzlightyearSee all my reviews

Screw Woodstock! That's what I say! I have no idea if I would enjoy Depeche Mode 101 as much if I didn't love the group as much as I do. But mind you, I've seen a lot of rock docs that I've really liked, yet I wasn't crazy about the artist (Jimi in Monterey for example), so I would imagine I would like this. But since I like the band to begin with, that's a mute point isn't it? DM101 profiles Depeche Mode and their grandiose final concert, their 101st, when they were supporting their amazing album 'Music For The Masses. The concert was at the Pasadena Bowl, and this covers all about the logistics of putting a concert of that size there, profiles some VERY scary 80's kids who win a concert to travel to a couple of concerts performed by the band, and their travels across America! Oh and as for the concerts themselves, the songs are great, and they're shot by D.A. Pennebaker for pete's sakes, so you're going to get the best bang for your buck here!
