Depeche Mode, who has never had a #1 hit in the states, has sold 1.27 million tickets through the first nine months of 2017, more than Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber or Bruno Mars.

I didn't realize DM never had a #1 here. I thought "Personal Jesus", "Enjoy the Silence", "Never let Me Down Again", and maybe a couple of others, had charted in the top ten and hit the very top.

 

It is amazing though, that there are quite a few bands out there who do well enough on a regular basis, with albums and individual songs, that not hitting "#1" isn't so important. Not as far to fall. :-)

Select Strat, Select Tele, Am Pro JM, LP 57 Gold, G5422DC-12, T486, ES295, PM2, EXL1

XK1c, Voyager, Prophet XL

I believe they hit #1 in Europe, but never the US. There's a really good documentary out there on them, forgot the name now, that covers their entire career from the early days on. They are truly one of those bands that grew a cult following and used their live shows to be successful.
