Watch: Dave Gahan (of Depeche Mode) – “Love Will Tear Us Apart” (live Joy Division cover)

Last night, the Grammys’ seventh-annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert was held at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, providing an intimate opportunity to see acts like Jane’s Addiction and Paramore, but the real draw was a solo set from Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan. Of course, tickets were like $500 or some shit, so us normal folks didn’t really have a chance to attend. But, as Slicing Up Eyeballs reports, the set featured a mix of covers and Depeche Mode classics, and even an appearance from fellow Mode-y Martin Gore. This video of Gahan covering “Love Will Tear Us Apart” is of excellent quality and is a rare chance to see one 80’s rock icon covering another one.

Check out Dave Gahan covering Joy Division below.
