I was just completely speculating.  I have nothing to back it up other than their choice of covering Heroes.  I mean think about it - when have DM ever done a cover of *anything*, especially live?  Of course there was Route 66, but other than that, I'm at a loss.  I think we'd have to go back to '82 or '83 tour with I Like It to find another DM cover.  (Edit: I do seem to recall DM did perform Never Turn Your Back on Mother Earth once or twice around '88 but that was highly unusual).

To my mind, covering Heroes is their way of paying tribute to an artist that greatly influenced them.  So then I have to wonder *why* they decided to do it now, after all these years??

I think they decided to do it now as a tribute to Bowie who recently died, and Dave is passionate about Bowie.  

I would also bet they do more world tours, or at least one more.

I don't know if I've gotten old and grumpy but I will say DM does absolutely nothing for me in one bit. I had a chance to goand see this Tour and simply was not motivated to go. One thing for me is I know you can never go back to the glory DM days but I have never liked the post Violator evolution both musically and tour. except for one brief moment when they did the awesome Singles Tour in 98. For that brief period it was like the early days all over again.

^ I liked it too! It started out a little slow but gradually became more exciting and inspiring...

It's also odd that OMD just did a over of Heros for BBC radio

Depeche Mode is nominated this year for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  If they get in, does that mean Vince gets in?  I should think so...

Found the answer--he is listed on the ballot page as a member, so yes.

I'm sure he'd show up. Would Alan, though?

Considering he joined them for that charity performance at The Royal Albert Hall a couple of years ago, I'd say probably yes.

Nobody has pointed out yet that the Hall Of Fame is a PUBLIC VOTE!

Closing date is 5th December 2015.

There are 19 nominees, and Depeche are up against the likes of Dire Straits, Bon Jovi, Moody Blues, Radiohead and Nina Simone to name a few, so I'm not too confident they're in for a win.

Anyway, we can vote here:

Thanks for the link kwerty.  I voted

I wish though that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame would change its name to "Modern Music" Hall of Fame, or something like that.  Too many inductees and nominees are not really "rock & roll", Depeche Mode included, and it just seems out of date with the current times.
