101 is a live album and documentary by Depeche Mode released in 1989 chronicling the final leg of the band's Music for the Masses Tour and the final show at the Pasadena Rose Bowl. Group member Alan Wilder is credited with coming up with the name; the performance was the 101st and final performance of the tour (and coincidentally also a famous highway in the area). The film was directed and produced by D.A. Pennebaker.

  • i was there in the 7th row at the Rose Bowl when this was recorded. it was an EPIC day. my second time seeing them live (first was at the Forum in 1986). it was a surreal, beautiful experience. even got to touch Fletch's hand that day... :) it really was the most epic concert ever (and i've been to many) with the sunny day turning suddenly to rain, just as Dave sang Blasphemous Rumours. talk about chill-inducing... i've heard they never again played that song live after that moment.. i stayed in line at ticketmaster overnight to score the tickets at face value... i was first in line. it was an all day event, and at the end of the concert, we all sang along for ages, at Dave's urging... the band was very moved, as was the entire stadium. it was many, many years before i could even listen to 101, as the day was so powerful.
  • Flawless setlist.
  • for sure in the top 5 of all live records
  • Most influential album of my life...
  • My most favorite live album
