Nigel wants to go and see Depeche Mode

Thus spake Attila the Stockbroker. Unfortunately Tim didn't get to go and see Depeche Mode.

Being in the radio biz (marginally), I sometimes get free tickets for gigs (examples: Tina Turner, The Australian Pink Floyd - who are actually very very very good), but this time I failed dismally. I also failed to get free tix for Paul McCartney. Sigh... *

Apparently the DM were very good - you can read Ashley's review and watch a clip.

It seems you can take in cameras to gigs nowadays. Maybe this is an Israeli thing. I recall the last time I went to a gig in the UK (Status Quo, if you must ask... my ex was crazy about them. Honest.) you weren't allowed to take in cameras, cassette recorders etc - presumably for fear of bootlegging. I guess these days the bands regard any free publicity as being a Good Thing.

* I also occasionally get free vouchers for Glida Frutti and Beit HaPancake (HaMekori). Not quite compensation for missing Depeche Mode or Paul McCartney, but hey...
