Here is Daryl Bamonte's entry for the famous Devotional Tour Diary, published in Bong magazine in 1994:

April 3rd, SAO PAULO: We just did our first run through as a “band”, which I thought went very well but in the “only perfection will do” world of these fascists, it obviously never. Just because I took too long fading the bass out on “Stripped” – Martin’s looking at me as if it’s all been a big mistake but fortunately Dave laughed and Alan remained quietly confident.

April 4th: SAO PAULO: This is just SO not funny. There’s loads of people screaming and they’re all going to be looking at me, waiting for a mistake so they can laugh and cheer and point and hold up banners saying “Bamonte’s a Wanker” in Portugese but I’ll understand it anyway… I wish I’d never agreed to this and I wish I could stand still.

In March 2018, Depeche Mode were asked what they remembered from this trip, and Martin Gore replied, "I remember the endless sea of ​​buildings seen from the plane when we were arriving," while Dave Gahan simply replied "Only good things."
