In 1990 Depeche Mode released Violator, the album that definitively consecrated them to international success. The record contained some of the group’s most celebrated songs, such as World In My Eyes, Policy Of Truth, Personal Jesus and Enjoy The Silence.
The latter was used as the second single of the album and the clip was given to Dutch director Anton Corbijn, who immediately proposed his vision on how to transport Enjoy The Silence on video. The idea was to film Dave Gahan dressed as a Little Prince, with crown and cloak, as he passes through desolate landscapes, dragging a deckchair behind him.
Tamino is a Belgian songwriter of Egyptian descent causing a stir in Europe and the Middle East alike. His luscious dark melodies have drawn comparisons to Jeff Buckley, Tom Waits and Dave Gahan and drawn the attention of superstar musicians such as Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood, who became a fan first, then a collaborator adding bass to Indigo Nights from Tamino’s debut album ‘Amir’, before eventually becoming a member of Tamino’s live band.
The British trio of Dave Gahan, Martin Gore and Andy Fletcher, a classic of synth pop since their debut in the early 1980s, are in Barcelona with their The Global Spirit Tour, in support of their 14th album, ‘Spirit’ (2017), which follows 2013’s, ‘Delta Machine’. If you missed the a few years ago, now’s your chance to see what all your friends were raving about, and hopefully dance around like mad to Depeche Mode favourites like ‘Enjoy the Silence’, ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ and ‘Personal Jesus’. There’s a reason they’ve sold more than 100 million albums throughout their illustrious career. Tonight at Palau Sant Jordi.
