Notes

Allegedly, Dave Gahan said "It's fucking cold here" at one point during the gig.

Here is the diary entry from DepecheMode.com:

The Gorge in George, Washington has got to be one of the MOST beautiful venues I have ever seen. For those of you who have not been there, it is out in the middle of nowhere, and lays upon the most beautiful scenery. Behind the stage is this huge canyon with a body of water at the bottom - it is amazing! It is hard to describe if you have not seen it, but trust me, it is a beautiful sight.

One thing different in the show that night was that there were no projections. It was a bit too windy for the screen to be up, so we decided not to have it all. It was quite odd at first, but then it was kind of cool to see just the guys performing. At times you get distracted by the screen and forget there are people on the stage. It was also cool because all you could see was the mountains behind the band - SO pretty, it almost did not look real.

After the show last night, we did a runner to San Francisco. And for a change, we had Mexican food as our feast on the plane. We are all so used to getting Indian that any sort of change is nice. The flight took about 2 hours, one of our longer ones, and we did not make it to the hotel until about 2:30 AM. So as you can assume, I am a bit tired today like everyone else seems to be. I am so very excited to be in SF until Sunday - I can finally unpack some of my things. Then again, I always say that but end up just taking out the minimum, not wanting to bother with repacking.
