Across 2017/2018 Depeche Mode embarked on their Global Spirit Tour, in which they performed to more than 3 million fans at 115 shows across the globe. This new visually-striking film, directed by award-winning filmmaker and longtime artistic collaborator Anton Corbijn, captures the energy and spectacle of the band's performance from the tour along with a deeper look into how their music and shows have been woven into the fabric of their fans' lives.

The scene with the fans camped outside the venue was a last minute idea pitched by the fan being interviewed (Daniel) that the crew decided to carry ahead after finishing early during one of the days filming in Berlin. See more »
An amazing and emotional experience for every Depeche Mode fan
I was a bit skeptical about the fan stories at the beginning, but I had to realize it made the movie much more special than just a concert film .
All the stories were unique and different from each other , some of them were really emotional, the others were inspiring.
The concert itself was obviously brilliant, Dave made an outstanding performance as always and so are the others. I really loved the entire build up of the movie, showing a bit of the fans, then showing a bit of the concert back and forth during the entire movie.
It's a must see to every Depeche Mode fan, wherever you're a hardcore fan or someone who just go into their music, because this movie will make you appreciate their music much better.
