Depeche Mode tonight dusted off Music For the Masses fan-favorite “I Want You Now” for the first time in nearly a quarter century, with Martin Gore opening the band’s encore in Nuremberg, Germany, with a piano-based performance of the song.
It was the first live rendition of the song by Depeche Mode since July 8, 1994, in Noblesville, Ind. — the culmination of the band’s 1993/94 tours in support of Songs Of Faith and Devotion.
Below, check out fan-shot footage of “I Want You Now.” Will update as more video surfaces.
