Anton Corbijn shot a part of his live film Devotional here.

Dave Gahan invites a female fan on stage towards the end of Fly On The Windscreen and sings "kiss me" instead of "touch me". There were problems with Dave's microphone during I Feel You and Rush.

During In Your Room, Dave stagedived. Here is Daryl Bamonte's entry for the famous Devotional Tour Diary, published in Bong magazine in 1994:

It was 1978, and he was a young punk who had sneaked onto the stage and was dancing around in his bondage trousers, next to Joe Strummer. As the roadies rushed to get him, he ran full speed and as he flew into the crowd, he floated for a second, half hero, half angel. When he landed he realised it wasn’t 1978, it was 1993, and he was the singer of Depeche Mode and 12,000 Germans were trying to rip his trousers off.

Marxmen were the support act, who played a shorter set than usual.

  • Source 1 is a decent audience recording; it has distorted bass and is echoey sounding. It's sourced from a DVD of one of the audience video recordings. Everything Counts is missing two-thirds of the song.
