Depeche Mode live in Pavilhão Atlântico, in Lisbon! Year 2009

MEO Arena, Lisbon

Author: dynamosquito

Depeche Mode, in 2009, were on an extensive tour in support the album Sounds of the Universe. The concert in Lisbon took place in the Pavilhão Atlântico (Parque das Nações), on the 14th of November, 2009.

Depeche Mode began their ‘Tour of the Universe‘ on May 10th in Israel and finished the first European leg in July. Due to an injury sustained by the lead singer Dave Gahan, Depeche Mode cancelled some dates of their European tour, including the Bessa Stadium in July. With Dave Gahan recovering well, Depeche Mode reorganised their tour dates and confirm the concert in Lisbon,in November.

Originally a product of Britain’s new romantic movement, Depeche Mode went on to become the quintessential electro-pop band of the 1980s. One of the first acts to establish a musical identity based completely around the use of synthesizers, Depeche Mode began their existence as a bouncy dance-pop outfit but gradually developed a darker, more dramatic sound that ultimately positioned them as one of the most successful alternative bands of their era.
