STRANGELOVE - The Depeche Mode Experience
Los Angeles based STRANGELOVE-The Depeche Mode Experience delivers a career spanning, pitch perfect “best of” concert that transports the listener through time and touches on several key points in Depeche Mode’s illustrious career. Songs from throughout the Depeche canon are lovingly recreated; from favorites on DM’s debut Speak and Spell to the newest fare from ‘Mode’s latest- 2017’s “Spirit”. No detail of STRANGELOVE’s presentation has been overlooked. The visual presentation with stage set pieces and in-show costume changes reflect different eras of Depeche Mode’s story; which spans almost four decades!
Truly evocative of a Depeche Mode arena/stadium stage show; the scale of STRANGELOVE’s theatrical stage production is unparalleled, save for the real article. Custom-produced multimedia projection visuals delight the concertgoer’s senses and enhance the illusion that they’re witnessing an actual Depeche Mode concert.
These accomplished musicians have a reverence and devotion to Depeche Mode’s body of work that has driven them to recreate every possible detail and bring the “Music To The Masses” in a concert setting that transcends a mere tribute production and feels more like a shared communal fan club celebration of halcyon days of new wave and emerging electronica. Accuracy and authenticity is a hallmark of the project, with the band employing as many authentic vintage synthesizers and samplers as possible in recreating the classic and widely varied sounds of Depeche Mode’s discography.
With over 120 million records sold and a rabid international fan base, Depeche Mode’s status as elder statesmen of electronica is cemented. Their enormous fan base encompasses all ages and crosses every demographic. They just won a Grammy this year. Their Global Spirit tour, continuing into 2018, has set world box office records. STRANGELOVE –The Depeche Mode Experience brings a thoroughly enjoyable and staggeringly authentic DM concert to concertgoers, and connects with international audiences, wherever the group performs.

Electric Duke - Tribute to David Bowie
Los Angeles based (via London, via Leeds) David Bowie tribute artist “Electric Duke” brings Bowie classics from several eras of his storied career, presented in a somewhat electronic format that pairs nicely with Strangelove, like a vintage wine! Frontman Julian Shah-Tayler was recently featured on the cover of LA Weekly for his Bowie-exploits. He’s worked and performed with Bowie cohorts Carmine Rojas and Kevin Armstrong.
