Here is the diary entry by Jez Webb from Bong magazine issue #40:

This large, faceless, hangar like building looks as if it might be more at home housing the German Sausage Convention than a rock show. Today is Sunday and the wonders of satellite TV and our excellent tour caterers mean it is like a home from home. After Yorkshire puddings with all the trimmings, we huddle into the back lounge of the bus to watch Arsenal beat Man Utd 3-0. Martin left grinning again by his team and a little bit of England is created in a German car park.

And here is the diary entry by Jody:

DM performed two shows back to back in Waldbuhne, a fantastic venue in Berlin. The shows were incredible, and there are some pictures to prove it. Sold out over the two nights with 21,000 people each night. We then traveled to Erfurt on Sunday for another show, which again was great and here are even more pictures to prove it.

After a day off (for most) in Berlin we are flying to Brussels tomorrow and then back to Germany for a gig in Stuttgart.

Purity was the support act. Tim Simenon DJed before and after Purity's set.
