Such a boring concert! So many of us were in disbelief. New song after new song as he twirled on the stage?!?! Some people left half way through concert. The sound was off too. Im glad we stayed because the old favourites were finally played at the very end. Not worth the money -disappointing!

2.0 star rating Marc from Montreal, Quebec


They had the Bell centre on fire for the encore. I don’t understand why some bands insist in trying to renew themselves 40 years after their initial start. Play what worked for you in the past, that is what most people want to hear. Very disappointed. Unless DM announced a farewell tour playing their hits… I am done. Sorry.

I went hoping hear to people are people and instead spent most of the time at the bar to drown out the boredom!

%85 new stuff. with just about everyone that paid good money for the tickets being over 40 you think they would of played more of the older stuff.. The songs everyone loves. I think that was my last time going to see them :(

I was super disappointed in this concert. They didn't play Just Can't Get Enough, Strangelove, People are People, Master and Servant, Somebody, World in My Eyes, Policy of Truth, A Question of Lust, Blasphemous Rumours, Shake the Disease, etc.? If they don't realize they are playing to a nostalgia crowd, and think people spent $300 for a ticket to hear their new music, they are out of touch and out of luck the next time they tour. We expect to hear your hits. That is the bottom line. I saw Duran Duran and Tears for Fears recently. Awesome shows. Played all their old hits, plus a few new songs. The way it should be. BADLY DONE DM!!

I'm sorry DM but you are not a "rock band" in the traditional sense of the term, so please stop trying to gig like one. Focusing more on getting the crowd going than your own performance is shameful. The bass drowned all other instruments and everything sounded like a wash, with many songs sounding eerily similar and repetitive. I'm not saying it's time to hang up the boots, but realize where your strengths are. The synthesizer is your friend and what put you on the map. Synthpop is your genre. Dave is NOT a modern day Iggy Pop or Mick Jagger. This concert was pathetic pandering to a new generation of entitled narcissists who see nothing but reflections of themselves in the band and the music. You're better than that, guys.

As a DM fan since High school and having seen the band more than 20 times over the last 35 years we were really excited to see the band again. With such a great catalogue of Music the setlist could be and Should be exceptional. judging by the fans in my section as well as the corridors, most if not ALL of us aging 40+fans (I'm 52) were looking forward to reliving a little of our younger days. Seeing Depeche Mode and not hearing/seeing Just Cant Get Enough, Shake the Disease, Behind the Wheel, Strangelove, People are People (especially given todays political climate People are People needs to be there! The Stage setup was great, the sound was excellent, the band was energetic but the choice of material was downright BAD. no one was there to listen to a new record or download new songs. i get it, some would have been fine but the first 6 songs and then even further, the Kick Ass Tunes from the FAVORITE BAND of my younger years weren't there! based on our section my opinion was shared!
