Short story:

Full article:

Laura Coroianu (Managing Partner, Emagic, Romania) : We did our first sold-out stadium show with Depeche Mode on 23 June 2006, at the old national stadium in Bucharest. It was actually the first sold-out stadium show in Romania, which of kick-started the live events industry over here.

Depeche Mode means a lot in Romania, since the 80s, when we associated them with an attitude of opposing the communist regime (dressing like them was especially infuriating to the communist censors.

I remember people crying with happiness in front of the first barrier at the 2006 concert. It’s one of my fondest memories. They couldn’t believe they were seeing them live. This feeling continued all through the 90’s and up to this year’s single, Where’s the Revolution?, which struck a chord with another young generation.
