The Depeche Mode concert in Santa Barbara had a twist to it.

A few minutes in, there was a power outage on the stage for unknown reasons.  It was out for about 10-15 minutes.

When the show got going again, the big screen behind the band was turned off but all the instruments and overhead lights worked fine.

The bowl has a 10 pm cut off for all of the bands, but because of the power glitch, they got to play another 10 minutes and did two encore songs.

It's nice to see that a band I first started liking back in the late 80s is still going strong and playing great venues as well. Thanks to a friend for these great photos from the show.
