Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to Dusseldorf we go!

A friend of mine had some extra tickets for Dusseldorf, and another friend offered to let me stay at their home, so Tara and I are off to Dusseldorf! Crazy. I’ve spent the last few days in a state of disbelief as mentally I had already been thinking of “next time” in the terms of three or four years. I’d made peace with Dallas being my last show. But this is really a stroke of fortune I couldn’t refuse. It means a lot to me, as the Dusseldorf shows are two of my four cancelled shows. I’ll be blogging our adventures, better supported by the upgrade of an iPhone 3GS I got last summer. Wish us luck!


Amanda is an enthusiastic, globe-trotting Mode fan who discovered the band in late 1998. Although she often feels like she got a late start in the Depeche Mode's career, she's survived nearly 20 years of the fandom, five new albums and multiple meetings with her love for the band intact (and stronger than ever). Amanda is a life-long creative, a classically trained graphic designer, working professionally as a User Experience Designer for one of the world's largest technology companies. When not at work or traveling for Depeche, she enjoys character illustration, comics, movies and Japanese Culture. And cats. Lots of Cats.
