Depeche Mode’s ‘101’ To Be Reissued In Deluxe Limited Edition Box Set

Depeche Mode will release on December 3 a deluxe limited edition box set of their 1989 documentary concert film 101.

The release will come with three previously unseen bonus performances of “A Question of Lust,” “Sacred,” and “Something to Do.” The official promotional video for “Everything Counts” is also included in the expanded edition.

The film is named after the band’s 1988 performance during the Music For The Masses world tour at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

It was Depeche Mode’s 101st show on the tour, captured for the group’s 1989 live release, 101.

A groundbreaking collaborative documentary, 101 was co-directed by the acclaimed husband-and-wife film-making team of D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus.

“DM 101’s parallel realities following the historic tour of this pioneering British band as they storm across America bringing an exciting new sound to the masses, along with an intimate view of a busload of ardent young fans on an unforgettable road trip to the Rose Bowl made this documentary a groundbreaking influence on the reality genre,” said Hegedus.

“It’s incredible to be able to see D.A. Pennebaker’s film and this period of our career presented in this new high-definition light,” Depeche Mode said in a press release.

The Depeche Mode 101 box set includes a 48-page behind-the-scenes story of the day photo book, a replica of the original U.S. theatrical release movie poster, a 16-page Anton Corbijn Photo Mode book as featured in the original album release, a Double CD of the original 20 track 101 concert release, a download card providing access to 4K downloads of the film, concert and bonus performances plus 24-bit audio files of the 101 concert release.

The two DVDs in the set contain the original extras from the 2003 DVD release of Depeche Mode – 101.
