Regarding how much audio is played live during a Depeche Mode concert, Alan Wilder has stated on the Shunt Q&A that it was approximately 50%, and that the band played as much as was manageable without bringing in lots of extra musicians. The 50% figure is presumably accurate only for tours spanning the 1982 See You Tour to the 1994 Exotic Tour, during which Alan was a member of the band and would be able to report directly based on first-hand experience. This tends to correspond with the available snippets and excerpts of backing tapes which are available to listen to below on their respective tours' pages.

What percentage of music was in fact played 'live' during a DM concert?

Approximately 50%

Don't you think that DM could have played much more "live" during a gig than 50%? I've always had the impression that especially Martin was somewhat underemployed (let alone Andy but that seems to be a different matter.)

Our policy was to always play as much as we could manage (without bringing in lots of extra musicians).
