On September 23, Depeche Mode announced plans to release a DVD and Blu-Ray recorded over two sold-out nights in Barcelona on their Tour of the Universe. The release date is November 8 in Europe (November 9 in North America).
The DVD, Tour of the Universe - Live in Barcelona, contains 21 tracks recorded from the shows promoting their 12th album, Sounds of the Universe. Packed with classics such as "Precious," "Fly on the Windscreen," and "Behind the Wheel," the DVD was filmed on November 20 and 21, 2009, at Barcelona's Palau Sant Jordi.
The release is set to come in three formats, including a deluxe version containing two audio CDs of the concerts, four promotional videos, and a tour documentary featuring montages and scenes from tour rehearsals.
During the band's Tour of the Universe, which began in Israel in May 2009, Depeche Mode played across 32 countries to more than 2.3 million people. Considered one of the most successful electronic bands ever, Depeche Mode has had 48 songs in the UK Singles Chart and number one albums in the UK, the US, and Europe.
