On November 3rd 1981 Depeche Mode played for the 2nd time in their history in Manchester at Fagins Nightclub on Oxford Street .

This is the only existing Ticket stub known to exist or at least online anyway .

The Ticket is owned by Daryl Bamonte who is a close freind of the band and still is to this present day and the image also appeared on the Album sleeve of Depeche Modes Album "The Single 81-85" .

On the same day Depeche Mode also did a Photoshoot with Tom Sheehan Manchester Photographer at the rear of the old Grosvenor Picture Palace Oxford Road which is now "The Footage Pub" fomerly "Flea & Firkin" .

It's a long time ago now but I purchased a ticket from Picadilly radio to see Depeche Mode at Fagins. There was a handful of people there and I am sure this would have been a very early gig, if not the first to promote their record release. The date on the ticket looks like 1/8/81 so is before the ticket pictured in this thread. Not sure how I can upload a scan of my ticket?

I saw Depeche Mode at Rafters supported by The Delmontes.
Is this the stub from the same gig ?

No , the Rafters gig was August 5th 1981 supported by Ludus , so was there another support band ? This is the gig reviewed by Morissey that caused a stir , i have ticket scans and posters from this gig .
