Depeche Mode bring flamenco dancer to stage – Music Rolling Stone

At their concert in Madrid (Tuesday, March 12th) Depeche Mode brought a flamenco dancer onto their stage. Belén López danced a few bars to “Enjoy The Silence” with the band. A paper was previously published on social media that provided information about video recordings for a concert film by the band.

Depeche Mode performed at the WiZink Center in Madrid and apparently wanted to demonstrate their love for flamenco music. According to a report from “,” the band went to dinner on Monday at “Flamenco de Leones,” a flamenco venue, where they met López. After their dance performance to “Enjoy The Silence” there were warm hugs from Dave Gahan, Martin Gore, Christian Eigner and Peter Gordeno. It’s very, very rare for Depeche Mode to invite guest stars onto their stage – when was the last time before?

The musicians’ improvisations to López’s dance are worth listening to, and Dancing Dave can keep up quite well too.

In any case, it’s hard to imagine that DeMo in Germany would bring a traditional, country-typical dancer onto the stage…
