«Touring The Angel»

On September 25th, 2006 Depeche Mode will release «Touring The Angel», special edition 3-disc set, featuring the full-length live show and a host of exclusive extras on two DVDs and a live audio CD.

Directed by Blue Leach, who has previously worked with R.E.M, it was recorded at Milan's Fila Forum on February 18th and 19th, 2006 and sees the band at their live best with a pulsing sound, electric stage presence and ecstatic audience.

The DVD1 features over 20 stunning live songs, including the recent hit singles «Precious», «A Pain That I'm Used To», «Suffer Well» and «John The Revelator» plus the definitive «Just Can't Get Enough», «I Feel You», «Enjoy The Silence» and many more.

DVD2 features a range of exclusive extras, including: two bonus live songs - 1986's smash-hit «A Question of Lust» and «Damaged People» from «Playing The Angel», plus a 20-minute documentary featuring Anton Corbijn, who directed the video for «Suffer Well» and created the tour's 6 stage screens, which also appear here.

Additionally, the DVD boasts the official tour announcement from Germany, Summer 2005, and the previously unreleased «Playing The Angel EPK». Meanwhile, the audio CD features over 30 minutes of stunning live tracks from the concert.

The European leg of the world tour followed 24 American dates and featured four UK shows - including two at London's Wembley Arena. It sold-out 69 arena dates throughout 30 countries, with 800,000 tickets sold in Europe alone, and was their first since 2001's «Exciter», where they played to nearly 2 million people. In total, Depeche Mode played to 2.5 million people across 31 countries this year.
