A Flock Of Seagulls with special guest Strangelove – The Depeche Mode Experience

As well-known for their bizarrely teased haircuts as their hit single “I Ran (So Far Away),” A Flock of Seagulls was one of the MTV video rotation staples of the new wave era. Growing out of the synth-heavy and ruthlessly stylish new Romantic Movement, the group benefitted considerably from MTV’s heavy rotation of the “I Ran” video in the summer of 1982. Mike Score’s outrageous hair style is forever embedded in pop culture. Hear all your favorite hits including “TELECOMMUNICATION,” "I RAN (SO FAR AWAY),” "WISHING (IF I HAD A PHOTOGRAPH OF YOU),” "SPACE AGE LOVE SONG," and more! STRANGELOVE-The Depeche Mode Experience delivers a career spanning, pitch perfect “best of” concert that transports the listener through time and touches on several key points in Depeche Mode’s 40+ year career. Songs from throughout the Depeche canon are lovingly recreated; from favorites on DM’s debut Speak and Spell to the newest fare from ‘Mode’s latest- 2017’s “Spirit”. No detail of STRANGELOVE’s presentation has been overlooked. The visual presentation with stage set pieces and in-show costume changes reflect different eras of Depeche Mode’s story.
