2001-06-30 First Union Center, Philadelphia, PA, USA


Three tracks from this concert (shot by Anton Corbijn) appeared on the Freelove single DVD: Freelove, The Dead Of Night, and Breathe. There was also a five-track in-house promotional CD containing the tracks The Dead Of Night, Dream On, Breathe, Freelove, and I Feel Loved. The FM radio broadcast downloadable below is a broadcast of those five tracks.

Here is the diary entry from DepecheMode.com:

We are now in Philly and flew straight to the venue from the airport. MTV is here to film the guys for their 20th Anniversary special as well as get an interview for MTV News. They are also going to film Personal Jesus and Dave is going to bring the camera out on stage and say a little greeting to MTV - should be interesting.


Last night's show went fairly well, though not too comparable to Madison Square Garden. Donna Vergier and Kate Whitby graced us with their presence for the Philly show which was nice. We all spent a great deal of time with Kate and Donna doing press in London last March, so we all enjoy their company greatly. Kate took care of me when I was there in London and realizing that the tour had not even started yet and I was already so exhausted! She is a great friend and I LOVE it when she comes to visit.

The MTV interviews went well, and David did indeed pull the camera out on stage and tell everyone to wish MTV a happy birthday. That is exactly what they wanted, so I think they were overjoyed.
