1. The technical team?
aa ,   Israel   (08.01.06)
When you say "what WE are going through", who are you talking about? us, the Israelis, you the English, or Depeche Mode?
2. The "Technical Team" is another word for Yellow!
David ,   Karmiel   (08.01.06)
No doubt the technical team is not made up the backbone and strength of character that Londoners had during the Blitz/ Hitler would have been in residence in Buckingham Palace if he had fought Depeche Mode's technical fraidly cats or are they Hezbollah supporters in disguise as most Britz appear to be? Her Majesty's subjects seem to have forgotten the 52 dead victims of Islamic terror a year ago and the Brits who have had their heads chopped off.
3. Anti-Semites of the world rear their ugly head once again
Jenny   (08.01.06)
4. Oh Shit, there goes the 80's!
Tom ,   USA   (08.01.06)
Maybe Devo could resurrect the concert industry.
5. What about Depeche mode?
We've heard the band's manager, shuki and who not, but what about a statement from Dave, Martin and Flentch????
6. appropriate
myr   (08.01.06)
i guess that even the concertgoers now will have something to mourn about this tisha b'av
7. Good: Thursday Night Is The 10th Of Av
Yishai Kohen ,   YeShA, Israel   (08.01.06)
And even though the Beit HaMikdash was begun to be destroyed on the 9th, it burned through the 10th. This is basic Jewish history- and Judaism, and the concert organizers should have been aware. Allah works in mysterious ways to prevent what shouldn`t have been at all.
David P ,   Santa Cruz. USA   (08.01.06)
happy birthday to me
9. Thank goodness!
Nachash Tsefah ,   Tel Aviv   (08.01.06)
Holding a concert motzei Tisha b'Av, and in the current state of war which threatens a repeat of the original 9 Av events (G-d forbid!) was totally insensitive and anti-Jewish. This is a period of mourning and introspection in the Jewish calendar, not one of celebration and entertainment. Proceeds from the sale of tickets should be donated to communities in need in the north and south (or at least the organisers should offer this as an option). That way the concert-goers will be doing something productive and in the interests of healing this mourning and wounded nation. A nation that spits on the mitzvot and denigrates its own history has no right to be in this land, and our enemies are all too ready to teach us that lesson.
10. #7 Dear Yishai
Logic ,   Israel   (08.01.06)
I usually respect your talkbacks, but this one irks me. What do you care if some non-religious people want to enjoy a concert far away from your house? I say live and let live.
11. GOOD! Serves you right
Gaby ,   Beirut Lebanon   (08.01.06)
I'm glad your summer is ruined too. Bastrards!
12. Depeche Mode
J   (08.01.06)
What a great band. Hope they come back when things calm down.
13. ummmm who cares?
80swerelame1stime ,   washington d.c.   (08.01.06)
is depeche that big in israel? they sure aren't in the US anymore. except for a few old people stuck in the 80's.
14. Good for the Technical Team~~~
Dave ,   USA   (08.01.06)
~~"When you say 'what WE are going through', who are you talking about? us, the Israelis, you the English, or Depeche Mode?~~ Well, since it's always about YOU.. Perhaps what you are puting the world through... Want to defend YOURSELVES? Fine! Then send the Americans their money back!!!!!
15. #1(aa) pretty funny
Brian ,   Atlanta, USA   (08.01.06)
Is this story even news worthy at this point?
16. nothing wrong with klezmer
mike ,   usa   (08.01.06)
I like folk better than despatch commode anyway. What an out of date crew moreover, who listens to these slackers any more? Almost all rock bands in the US are ultra-progressive and would probably be happy playing for Nasrallah's birthday party.
17. Depeche Mode
Maddog ,   USA   (08.01.06)
Who cares.....
18. They were great in Anaheim.
Bob ,   Anaheim, CA   (08.01.06)
It's too bad that the fans in Israel won't be able to see the show. Another impact of the terrorists not leaving Israel alone.
19. let them play fro hiz-bull-ah
illinois payson ,   brooklyn ny   (08.01.06)
hmmm, it truly is an upsidedown world. G-d should bless israel and the usa with a complete and thorough victory over these dark forces and the fools that support them.
20. depeche
sunny ,   good ol usa   (08.01.06)
21. DM protesting the Qana attack. what technical team refusal?
aa, ,   London   (08.01.06)
according to the english newspapers the reason why DM cancelled the concert is what happened in Qana and how the british public reacted against it. Nothing to do with the technical team. It's the band members who protest Israel over Qana attack.
22. depeche mode still rock
viktor ,   union city - usa   (08.01.06)
to all the people pretending not to like depeche mode, they still make music and sell albums after 20+ years.. all your new bands suck and die out and serve me coffee on my way to work..
23. Poor Gaby
Phill Collins ,   Los Angels, CA   (08.01.06)
24. I don't beleive it !!
Nathen ,   New York   (08.01.06)
I was appauled that there was a concert scheduled for Tishah B'Av in the very Land of Israel. Can't we all just stop one day to reflect the destruction of the Bais Ha'Mikdosh?
25. To "um, who cares"
YoYo ,   NYC NY   (08.01.06)
...actually Depeche Mode are huge in America, they usually always either play stadiums or two night stands at arenas. That's a lot more people than just "a few old people who are stuck in the 80's." Get your facts straight and go listen to your Green Day albums, kiddie.
26. The technical team?
Bob ,   Georiga, USA   (08.01.06)
I would be somewhere in Great Britain you could find someone else to operate the sound and lights. Might even find some of those people in Israel.
27. What is the Depeche mode?
Alfonz ,   Hinesville, GA, USA   (08.01.06)
Hiding under a bed.
28. Before Critizing DM...Do you have the guts to go?
Sharon D. ,   Corona, CA   (08.01.06)
All of those claiming that DM are Anti-Semites or Yellow...are just fools. Who in there right mind would visit a war zone anyway. Your probably the type that would visit Israel then complain that our government isn't reacting fast enough to get you out.
29. To #10
Eli ,   NY NY   (08.01.06)
As Jewish people we care about all Jews in the world wherever they are. When non - relgious jews act in ways that are so painful to us - such as a rock concert on Motzei Tisha B'av - we are all saddened and certainly have a right to care. Thank G-d they have cancelled.
30. Don't bash the 80s!!! Bash the terrorists instead!!!!
AngryAmerican ,   Chicago, IL USA   (08.01.06)
The 80's bands were awesome!! I saw DM in 1988 and I would do it again... I did not even know they were still performing..... I think we should give Israel all the weapons they need to finish the job! Kick the terrorists all the way to Tehran and teach Iran and Syria a lesson they will NEVER forget!
