Strangelove - The Depeche Mode Experience
Plus special guest The Joshua Tree - A Tribute to U2
Los Angeles based Strangelove - The Depeche Mode Experience will perform at City National Grove of Anaheim on Saturday, August 11 with special guest The Joshua Tree – U2 Tribute Band
Strangelove 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 illustrious career. Songs from throughout the Depeche canon are lovingly recreated; from favorites on DM’s debut Speak & Spell to the newest fare from ‘Mode’s latest album, Spirit. No detail of Strangelove’s presentation has been overlooked.
Truly evocative of a Depeche Mode arena/stadium stage show; the scale of Strangelove’s theatrical stage production is unparalleled, save for the real article. Custom-produced multimedia projection visuals delight the concertgoer’s senses and enhance the illusion that they’re witnessing an actual Depeche Mode concert.
"I've been waiting two years to play on this stage with these guys." It was July 21, 2012, and Xiren was addressing a packed house from the Hangar stage at the Orange County Fair. It was a breathtakingly humble statement from a man who, before he had joined The Joshua Tree, was already a successful recording artist in his own right, his music having been heard on television and major radio markets. But it had indeed been two years since he had come to see The Joshua Tree play to a similarly packed house on this same Hangar stage, shortly after auditioning and being accepted as Joshua Tree's new singer. He was coming to a band with years of experience under their belt, having started in 2003 by guitarist Chas Alm, who back then had a deep love of U2 and a few effects pedals. Times had certainly changed since their first small show in a church, 14 years ago. All 4 band members strive to bring an authentic "U2 experience" to every show, including sound, gear, and wardrobe.
The Joshua Tree has played community events, corporate events, private events and more, and has delighted fans from here in Southern California, to as far away as Alaska, Mexico and Pennsylvania. They hope to see you at a show soon, and share their love of U2 with you!
