FINALLY! DM's Devotional to DVD! Oh HELL yes!

Depeche Mode Release "Devotional" DVD
Released September 20th on Mute Records

Depeche Mode release for the first time on DVD, their acclaimed performance film, "Devotional", recorded on the band's 1993 sold out world tour. Directed by the innovative photographer and director and longterm Depeche Mode visual collaborator, Anton Corbijn, this hugely impressive and visually stunning film perfectly captures the essence of one of Britain's most pioneering acts at the height of their powers. On its release in 1993, "Devotional" was nominated for a Grammy award for Best Long Form Music Video.

The "Devotional" 2 disc DVD is a compilation of the band's live performances recorded in Frankfurt and Barcelona on the band's "Devotional" world tour. Extras, exclusive to DVD, include a Depeche Mode rockumentary, an interview with Anton Corbijn and six remastered promo videos, including "Walking In My Shoes". The DVD also features a series of eight back projections that were used on the second half of the tour.

The performance includes renditions of Depeche Mode classics, "Personal Jesus", "Walking In My Shoes" and "Enjoy The Silence", "Never Let Me Down Again" with exclusive bonus tracks, "Halo" and "Policy of Truth.

"Devotional" is a beautifully filmed document of one of the band's most lavish and ambitious shows ever. With an epic and innovative stage design and unique visuals, all produced by Anton Corbjin, "Devotional" is more than just a live DVD - it is a journey not to be forgotten.

Sweet! I can replace my VHS copy. I know that I'm in the minority, but Songs of Faith and Devotion is one of my favorite DM albums.

Thanks for the info.

Cool. I had the VHS before my VCR ate it, oh man I think I cried that day.

Loved the opening sequence to Walking in my Shoes where those people with the masks come out one by one and how it just builds. Underrated album for sure.

The world felt a little more 'right' when I awoke this morning. This was most likely the cause.

I worked at a movie theater with the guy who did the rear projections on this tour. His name (Philip Smoot) is in the end credits on the laserdisc. He was a weird old guy who ended up killing himself by running his car with the garage door closed.

Kudos to their webmaster for keeping the fans up to date. I wore out my VHS copy of this a long time ago.

I just picked this up today at Fry's for $19.99 has anyone found it for less? I watched only the concert footage and it sounds amazing the picture quality is a little grainy but that is to be expected coming from Anton "King of Grain" Corbijn, DM fans shouldn't be surprised by this.

I can say time sure does fly, it's been over ten years since I saw this tour at the Forum in Los Angeles. This DVD sure brings back the memories. Now if DM would only release their earlier videos 81-85. I know those videos can be pretty cheesy by today's standards but DM can't deny their own history or can they?

Watched this the other night with my 5.1 amp on.
Beautiful!
This has got to be one of the best concert DVDs ever ( much better then the NIN one, but I have high hopes for their new one).
And yes, the remix album is out in a couple of weeks time, I have pre-ordered the limited edition 3 disc version.
