Here is the diary entry from DepecheMode.com:

Vegas baby! After driving from L.A. with my "plus one" Lee (his sisters, and friend Octavio) in the pimp rental Caddy, we all headed towards the Hard Rock. When I got to the hotel / venue (around 4 pm), there was already a line. This was impressive, considering the oppressive heat.

To the important part - the show. Of the shows I've seen, this was the best (along with Shoreline). Even without the projection screens (the venue was too small), the boys still rocked. The crowd was singing along as well, which was surprising considering the high number of record label employees scattered throughout the crowd. Martin's acoustic number of the night was "Surrender".

After the show, I gambled a bit (I won enough money to buy the special DM Hard Rock $5 and $25 poker chips), and then we drove back to L.A. (yes, that's a lot of driving - I refuse to fly), watching the video I shot of the show (which the images on the Pictures page come from).
