Depeche Mode has long been one of my most loved bands. If you didn’t already know I won a contest and went on tour with DM which ended up as the movie Depeche Mode 101. You can see me in it as a young mohawked 17 year old. I personally feel there best work was when Alan Wilder was in the band so it was so very nice to see he took the stage this yesterday with his old mates.
Former Depeche Mode keyboardist Alan Wilder appeared on stage with the British synth pop band for the first time in 16 years…. Wilder appeared with the band during the encore to help perform “Somebody,” which appears on 1984’s Some Great Reward. “Dave contacted me a few weeks back and asked if I’d be willing to join them on-stage,” Wilder wrote on his website on Thursday (Feb. 18). “He assured me that everyone in the band was into the idea. I was very happy to accept, especially as it was all in a good cause and we were long overdue some kind of reunion of this sort. “It was great to see everyone again and catch up a bit, and it was also the first time I have actually ‘seen’ Depeche Mode perform!” – chartattack.com
