1981-02-06 Brady's, Liverpool, England, UK
Stevo Pearce from the Some Bizzare label had spread around some advertisements billing ten concert dates of 'Some Bizzare Evenings' in January 1981 (see photo 1 below). The advertisements list the acts/bands on the Some Bizzare compilation album, followed by: "Different bands on different nights. Check venue for details." It is said that out of these ten concerts, Depeche Mode only played at 1981-02-02 Warehouse, Leeds, England, UK and 1981-02-03 Limit Club, Sheffield, England, UK. However, a 'February Gigs ' list of club Brady's in Liverpool has appeared online, saying that for February 6th there would be a 'Some Bizarre Tour' there that night, listing: "Depesche Mode [sic], Eric Random, B-Movie, Illustration" (see photo 2 below). Yet, an article in the 1981-02-14 issue of Sounds magazine reported that right after the 1981-02-03 Limit Club, Sheffield, England, UK concert, the PA company working on this 'Some Bizzare Evenings' tour decided that they could not cope with the poor organisation of the tour, so the rest of the tour was cancelled.
