             Depeche Mode (http://depechemode.com/) tonight opened its Global Spirit Tour (http://depechemode.com/tour) with a 22-song set in Stockholm that saw the group perform five songs on their new album Spirit (https://www.amazon.com/Spirit-Depeche-Mode/dp/B01N9V6BB2/ref=tmm_acd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=), bring back “Everything Counts” after more than a decade and debut an understated cover of David Bowie’s (http://www.davidbowie.com/) “Heroes.”
The set opened with Spirit’s first track, “Going Backward,” and included many of the ’90s and ’00s songs featured in the band’s warm-up gigs (http://www.slicingupeyeballs.com/2017/03/17/depeche-mode-berlin-webcast/) over the past few months, including “Barrel of a Gun,” “World In My Eyes” and “Walking in My Shoes,” “A Pain That I’m Used To” and “Enjoy the Silence.”
The only pre-Violator (https://www.amazon.com/Violator-Depeche-Mode/dp/B06Y5Y58RH/ref=sr_1_1_twi_aud_2?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1494043922&sr=1-1&keywords=violator) songs to make the cut: the aforementioned “Everything Counts” (not played on tour since 2006), plus “Stripped,” “Somebody,” “A Question of Lust” and “Never Let Me Down Again,” which we can only assume was accompanied by some pretty intense arm-waiving.
The tour moves on to Amsterdam on Sunday, and it will keep Depeche Mode in Europe through late July. The trek then comes to North America from late August until late October (http://www.slicingupeyeballs.com/2017/02/28/depeche-mode-tour-dates-north-america/), picking up once again next March in Mexico and then South America.
