Depeche Mode opened the UK leg of their 'Delta Machine' world tour last night (May 28) at London’s O2 Arena.

The synth legends performed a two-hour and 20-minute set, showcasing seven tracks from their recent album of the same name in between a host of their greatest hits including 'Policy Of Truth', 'Enjoy The Silence', 'Personal Jesus', 'I Feel You', 'Just Can’t Get Enough' and 'Never Let Me Down Again'.

The band also threw in a few surprises with guitarist Martin Gore taking up vocal duties instead of frontman Dave Gahan on 'Songs Of Faith And Devotion' track 'Higher Love' and 'When The Body Speaks' from their 2001 album 'Exciter'. Both tracks are normally sang by the band's frontman. During their set, the band also took time to delve into their remix album collection performing versions of 'A Pain That I'm Used To' by Jacques Lu Cont and Goldfrapp’s version of 'Violator' classic 'Halo'.

Depeche Mode will play a second night at the O2 Arena tonight (May 29) before they return for five more dates in November.

They played:

'Welcome to My World'
'Walking In My Shoes'
'Black Celebration'
'Policy Of Truth'
'Should Be Higher'
'Barrel Of A Gun'
'Higher Love'
'When The Body Speaks'
'Soothe My Soul'
'A Pain That I'm Used To'
'A Question Of Time'
'Secret To The End'
'Enjoy The Silence'
'Personal Jesus'
'Just Can't Get Enough'
'I Feel You'
'Never Let Me Down Again'
