Depeche Mode kicked off their North American leg of the Delta Machine tour last night in Detroit at DTE. The setlist was almost identical to the shows in Europe, and much to the delight of fans, Depeche Mode included the Black Celebration favorite "But Not Tonight," which has never been performed in Detroit before. Fans seemed pretty elated overall and the only criticisms seemed to be personal disappointment that a particular favorite song didn't get played (come on, there's no way to play 'em all).  The overwhelming response seemed to be Depeche Mode's performance and sound was top notch, and fans left pretty satisfied. The Detroit News' review of the show ended with the following comment, which seems to sum things up nicely:

"Depeche Mode finds itself in the same boat as the Cure, ’80s acts that honor the past but continue to feel vital today. The band’s new tour furthers that notion, and shows they’re not ready to hit the oldies circuit anytime soon."

Read other reviews from the show:  Billboard and the Oakland Press (both reviews written by Gary Graff).  The MLive review posted here also includes a collection of fan pictures. The setlist from last night's show is posted below. The Delta Machine tour resumes tomorrow in Chicago.
