Daryl Bamonte recalled in 2006:

"I can remember Dave coming to my flat in Basildon just before we went to the USA in March 1985 and saying that the Hollywood Palladium had sold out, so the promoter was booking an additional show "at some place called Irvine Meadows", and I couldn't believe it when we got there a few weeks later, a 15,000 capacity outdoor arena."

Dave Gahan told The Guardian:

"[T]here was a phase, and one particular venue in Los Angeles, the Palladium, where people would just throw shoes on stage. I don’t know what that was all about."

Book Of Love was the support act. The show was introduced by Ramondo and The Blade (Raymond Banister and Richard Blade) from KROQ.
