Tour Of The Universe, Barcelona & New Remix Album
Tour Of The Universe, Barcelona
Depeche Mode ‘Tour Of The Universe, Barcelona’ will hit stores across Europe in early November. Exact dates are to be confirmed, but it looks like it will be November 7 in Germany and November 10 in most other places (incl. UK, Scandinavia and France).
The release will, according to an internal EMI email which leaked via DepMod.com forums, come in three different variations:
Standard DVD edition (1DVD, 2CD)
Deluxe DVD edition (2DVD, 2CD)
Blu-ray Edition (2Blu-ray discs)
Content details are still sketchy, but are said to, in addition to the full concert film, include a 40 minute documentary, the Anton Corbijn directed films used for the on-stage screens, footage from the band’s pre-tour rehearsals in New York, as well as the promotional videos for ‘Wrong’, ‘Peace’, ‘Fragile Tension’ and ‘Hole To Feed’.
In addition there will be a 16 page booklet included with each edition, with the deluxe edition getting a second booklet.
New Remix Album
The second release already on the books is a remix album, who existence was hinted at by a notoriously “in the know” poster on a Pet Shop Boys forum, who goes by the name Flaffer. He writes: “Depeche mode have got a new remix album out next year, remixes are currently being commissioned. Sorry cannot divulge my source as he represents one of the remixers someone who has mixed PSB in the past.”
While this should still be placed firmly in the “rumoured” column, I’d suggest you don’t bet against it being true, considering where it came from.
