I love to travel (obviously), and when I know I’ll be near a location that’s somehow related to Depeche Mode, I’ll more than likely make time to stop by and snap a shot. So I’ve started a Depeche Mode map — video locations, concert halls, and anywhere else that a Devotee (and especially a Takeoveree) might want to visit. (Tips for viewing and searching can be found below the map.)
Know of a location missing from the Depeche Mode map?
- Use the dropdown just above the map to filter the locations.
- Use the search box to the bottom-right of the map to look for a specific location. Don’t find it? Suggest a location.
- A bouncing marker indicates a location that may be of special interest to fans, either because it’s historic or very Instagrammable.
- Names in parentheses following concert dates indicate who opened. Ex: Black Celebration Tour: June 12, 1986 (Book of Love)
- You can make the map full-screen by clicking the broken square icon in the map’s upper-right corner; hit the escape key to exit full-screen mode.
- Each category has a unique map marker associated with it. Some locations belong to more than one category, so the marker may not look like those of the other locations in the same category.
- Click on the listing below the map to zoom in on that location.
- Since venues change name often, the name on the listing is that at the time of the earliest association with Depeche Mode.
- While the map works on all device types, it is recommended to use a desktop for the optimal experience.
A special thanks to the following sites, which I referred to often in compiling these lists:
