DM update

Update: Here's the NPR show (including the Come Back outtake) in MP3. (Thanks Pussycat)

Depeche Mode were on NPR's World Cafe today, and you can listen to the show here. Also, the band have had to cancel the final two shows of their European tour, due to a leg injury suffered by Dave. Get well soon (again), Dave!
The tour now takes a brief break, then hits North America, starting in Toronto on July 24th.

Reminder: Live in Paris 08 on French tv & dvd?

The Cure Live in Paris 08 (90 minute version) will air on Virgin 17 (French tv) on Saturday (July 11th) at 10pm. (Thanks Scarlett)
For those of us not in France, Moloch and his brother will be recording the show, and hopefully uploading the show very soon.

Don't Hate the 80's. (Thanks Kate)
Brief interview with Sean from Fascination Street, Sounds of the 80s that still resonate, and mention of a Grinding Halt cover on Manikin's new album. (Thanks Heron)

"This is a bit weak, but ESPN chose two Cure songs to accompany the 80 greatest sports moments of the 80's. "Why Can't I be You" accompanies great moment #12 (Michael Jordan's title winning shot for UNC) and they chose "Boys Don't Cry" for #80 (Mike Schmidt's retirement announcement). " (Thanks Jared)

Review: "I hope this film gets very very soon on dvd and in my dvd-player. It's absolutely fantastic. The dvd was very professionally made. Nice effects, nice camera shots. On the big videowall it was like being in Paris. Nice effects on alt.end and end of the world. a fantastic highlight was on play for today, very much camera moves within the crowd, looks nice on a 270m2 bigscreen. sound was wonderful. Nice on prayers for rain, it was raining :-) There had been some curefans, maybe 10 at all with t-shirts, and many "normal"." (Thanks Jörg)
