BONG magazine editor Michaela Olexova recollected in Bong issue 38:

"The Czech Republic was still struggling with the communist regime [in 1988] and Depeche Mode were one of the very first bands from the western part of the World to come and perform in our country. I remember the interest in this concert was overwhelming and there were thousands of people coming from abroad. The capacity of the venue was 16,000 but there were about 90,000 plus requests for the tickets!!! I also recall that the atmosphere on the night was amazing, although there were many state police officers to calm the crowd down, in order to prevent possible riots!?! To remember this special day, the DM fans started to gather on the date of the show in front of the venue for their black celebrations..."

There was no support act.
