Alan Wilder Reunites With Depeche Mode

Some fifteen years after leaving the band, Depeche Mode’s erstwhile keyboardist (and perhaps most underrated member) Alan Wilder rejoined the band live on stage in London’s Royal Albert Hall last night during a special one-off concert for the Teenage Cancer Trust. You can view some of the performance (shakily) here.

Wilder made his re-appearance during the opening encore, playing piano on “Somebody”. He originally quite the band via a tersely worded statement in 1995, citing “increasing dissatisfaction with the internal relations and working practices of the group”.
