1986-08-11 Esplanade du Stade, Royan, France
This concert was cancelled due to torrential rain on the day of the concert. According to a comment made by Nicki Jones in the Facebook group Depeche Mode Classic Photos and Videos (membership required; quoted below):
Royan was cancelled due to torrential rain. It rained in Annecy and water leaked through the stage roof. Dangerous when u consider all the electrical equipment! Anyway the band had to leave the stage early. They did come back on to finish the concert when the rain stopped and it was safe to do so. Everyone travelled to Royan and it was cancelled last minute due to continuing bad weather. I've sent Andy a scan of the pass I had. Maybe not many tickets around as they probably had to be returned for refunds??
