1984-11-02 Hammersmith Odeon, London, England, UK
Depeche Mode's second out of four nights at the Hammersmith Odeon during their 1984-1985 Some Great Reward Tour. A pre-FM recording, an FM broadcast master tape, and a raw soundboard tape of this concert are available below.
All three sources of this audio are confirmed to be from this date and not 1984-11-03 as was commonly thought for a very long time. The BBC Radio International catalog search page confirmed the date of the In Concert 345 pre-FM vinyl as being from November 2, 1984; see below for a screenshot.
Portion Control was the support act.

- Source 1 is sourced from a promotional BBC pre-FM vinyl containing 12 tracks. Sound is flawless.
- Source 2 is sourced from a 17.5-track reference tape made for the band, with a very raw sounding mix. See You is only about 20 seconds long, and Shout and Just Can't Get Enough are entirely missing.
- Source 3 is an FM broadcast master tape and contains Blasphemous Rumours not found on the pre-FM vinyl.
