DM Tour of the Universe hits North America

Depeche Mode's Tour of the Universe: Earth - North America starts tonight in Toronto. Good luck to Martin, Dave, Fletch, Peter, and Christian, and here's hoping for no more troubles on this leg of the tour. For those of you heading to the Toronto and Montreal shows, I hope you have safe trips and a fantastic time at the shows!
Update: Looks like a great show and successful kickoff to the NA tour. And they made a change in the setlist. Minor, but for DM, that's huge. : )

Side-line has a new interview with Roger, and Twentyfourbit offers their take on it. (Thanks Monghi and Kate)

Come on, Roger, you know you're just dying to "goth out". : P

Update: Side-line also catches up with the news about the possible split with Universal, the Live in Paris broadcast, and the JLH digital 45. (Thanks Mad Bob)


A bit about the Reeves Gabrels/Robert collaborations at Wicked Local, and a mention in a Brandon Flowers (Killers) interview with The Guardian. (Thanks Heron)

"There were Cure references(the moon singing lovecats during end credits and a reference to Goth Juice, made from the tears of Robert Smith) during The Mighty Boosh tonight." (Thanks April)

"BBC1's new panel quiz show "As seen on TV" played a bit of BDC over footage of contestants crying on the Joseph talent contest before a bunch of questions! A bit of a sad use of the classic methinks!" (Thanks Robert but not THE Robert)
