Notes

Update from DM's official BONG magazine, issue #3:

Phoenix, Arizona holds two DM tour records... for being both the coldest and hottest dates on the same tour! The first time Depeche Mode played there, on December 8th '87 it was FREEZING! The next time, June 15th '88, the temperature was 110 degrees. This led to two keyboards actually 'frying' in the heat! Just like the Scouts, the DM road crew have the motto "Be Prepared" and carry spare keyboards "just in case". The concert went well and none of the crowd seemed any the wiser!

This moment can be seen in DM's movie '101': Andy Franks and Martin Gore check out the electricity below the stage and Martin talks about doing an acoustic set (in case the power goes out). Luckily they fix the problem and go on stage without delays.

Martin Gore also says in the commentary track of the '101' DVD: "We played this place twice on this tour. The first time we played there, it was too cold that nothing would work, and the second time it was so hot and nothing would work."

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark was the support act.
