No 1 magazine reported:

Modey's world tour started with a secret gig in Oxford last week. Whispers was most amused to find the band hiding behind the stage door watching girls in the crowd screaming and going: "Tee hee, let's wait a few minutes until they're really worked up haw haw." Meanwhile Modey's support band Hula were in their dressing room smashing chairs and swinging from the chandeliers - so delighted were they to be in the presence of the perfect pop group we call Depeche...

Andy Fletcher reported in the September 1986 issue of DM's Official Info Service Newsletter:

"The atmosphere backstage was slightly tense but when we arrived on stage the reception we received easily calmed any nerves we had. The gig went well with only a few hitches, the main one being when I tripped over on stage during the encore, injuring myself and nearly putting the whole tour in jeopardy. People still remind me of this incident much to my embarrassment."
