Depeche Mode release, for the first time on DVD, their acclaimed performance film, “Devotional,” recorded on the band’s 1993 sold out world tour. Directed by the innovative photographer and director and long-term Depeche Mode visual collaborator, Anton Corbijn, this hugely impressive and visually stunning film perfectly captures the essence of one of Britain’s most pioneering acts at the height of their powers. On its release in 1993, “Devotional” was nominated for a Grammy award for Best Long Form Music Video.

The “Devotional” 2 disk DVD is a compilation of the band’s live performances recorded in Frankfurt and Barcelona on the band’s “Devotional”, world tour. Extras, exclusive to DVD, include a Depeche Mode rockumentary, an interview with Anton Corbijn and six remastered promo videos, including ‘Walking In My Shoes’.

The performance includes renditions of Depeche Mode classics, ‘Personal Jesus,’ ‘Walking In My Shoes,’ ‘Enjoy The Silence’ and ‘Never Let Me Down’ with exclusive bonus tracks, ‘Halo’ and ‘Policy of Truth.’

“Devotional” is a beautifully filmed document of one of the band’s most lavish and ambitious shows ever. With an epic and innovative stage design and unique visuals, all produced by Anton Corbjin, “Devotional” is more than just a live DVD — it is a journey not to be forgotten.
