Event tip: Anton Corbijn signs “Depeche Mode”

Here is all the information about the DM photographer’s book signing.

Anton Corbijn comes to Cologne to sign his photo book “Depeche Mode”. The Dutch star photographer will be in the Taschen Store in Cologne on April 4th, 2024 and will then pull out the writing stylus for everyone who buys the magnificent DM volume between 5 and 6 p.m.

Depeche Mode will perform in Cologne on April 3rd, April 5th and April 8th, at the Lanxess Arena. So that means the band intimate could be in tow with Dave Gahan, Martin Gore, Christian Eigner and Peter Gordeno. The bag store is located at Neumarkt 3, 50667 Cologne.

In the press release, the tome is advertised as follows: “The volume contains over 500 photos, some of which have not yet been published, from Corbijn’s extensive archive, including both official and more private band portraits, taken in Madrid, Hamburg, the California desert, Prague or Marrakech (many photos were taken while filming iconic videos like “Enjoy The Silence” or “Personal Jesus”); plus a multitude of spontaneous, candid pictures and breathtaking live recordings from all tours since 1988.”
