Enjoy the Silence

How was your weekend? It rained, no, it POURED all weekend here in the T.dot. Really, it was miserable. The highlight of my weekend was when I saw Depeche Mode Friday night. Knowing that I've never seen DM live before, the BF got me two tickets to see them. Unfortunately, the BF was not in town to see them with me but fortunately, my friend Erin was! She's LOVES, and I mean LOVES Dave Gahan. Erin had been practicing her DM dance moves for a week straight. Well, Dave did not disappoint.

"Tour of the Universe" supports the band's 12th studio album, Sounds of the Universe. I first got into Depeche Mode when I was 10 or so as my aunt, who is only 9 years older than me, was a huge fan. I remember her playing Music for the Masses non-stop and parking herself in front of the TV to catch DM's music videos. And since I wanted to be cool like my aunt, I listened and watched along with her. I can't believe it took me this long to see DM live. They lived up to all my expectations. Dave Gahan is the ultimate showman and for someone who is approaching 50, he is in incredible shape. I was tired after dancing two hours straight!! I couldn't imagine doing that nearly every night! Anyways, here are some pics I took with my point and shoot. Check out Martin Gore's rockin' outfit.

Which artist have you been a long-time fan of but still haven't seen live?

Looks like fun!

And it did not pour in Kingston. Weird, eh? Well, it poured overnight on Saturday night, but we had hot weather on Saturday during the day and Sunday during the day.

FUN! I love concerts.
I've always been a little in love with Ben Folds, but have still never seen him in concert. Or Ben Folds Five.

Love DM! And the 1st and only time I saw them was with Erin too! Must be a trend.

I have yet to get out to see Etta James. And she's still kickin' it out there. Although I think the last time she was in T.O. was back in '06. Other artists I'm a huge fan of are no longer of this earth : (
