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!

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."

Nitzer Ebb was supposed to be the support act but couldn't get a visa in time, so Voice Farm was the support act.
