Telekom presents Depeche Mode.

Triple premiere in Berlin: Depeche Mode will perform on the release day of their new album “Spirit” an exclusive concert for Telekom Street Gigs on march 17th at Funkhaus Berlin. Through the cooperation of the telecommunications company from Bonn with Twitter, fans across the globe can be part of this outstanding event. For the first time a concert will be broadcasted worldwide with Twitter #Live. At the same time, it is the first live stream on Twitter in Germany. This can be watched starting at 8pm at @streetgigs and streetgigs.twitter.com. Finally, yet importantly, it is the first performance of the band in a 360° live stream brought to a global audience via live.telekom-streetgigs.de.

Talking about the live stream, Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan said, “We are thrilled that we can give fans on a variety of social communities and devices the chance to watch us perform as if they were actually with us in the building.”

Milestone with Twitter

“Music is one of the most popular topics people talk about on Twitter daily,” says Thomas de Buhr, Managing Director of Twitter Germany. “Thanks to our work with the Telekom, fans around the world can watch the exclusive Street Gig in real time and talk about it. This is also a milestone for Twitter in Germany.”

And Michael Schuld, Head of Communications and Sales Marketing for Telekom Germany adds: “Twitter is an ideal partner for us. Hardly any other platform enables our brand promise ‘Erleben was verbindet’ to be implemented better. With this, the Telekom is taking a new road no one else in Germany has gone down before and impressively proves its innovation ability once again.”

New dimension: Depeche Mode live in 360 degrees

For the first time a concert of one of the most influential, beloved and best-selling musical acts of all time can be viewed in 360°. Filmed with multiple 360° cameras fans will experience the show like being in the same room. Telekom will show the performance at Funkhaus Berlin worldwide live via live.telekom-streetgigs.de.
