2003-06-17 New Ice Arena, St. Petersburg, Russia
Here is the diary entry from DaveGahan.com:
Doing breakfast on my own, which consists of tobacco and caffeine (I got to quit smoking, but not here), I planned my day. After dodging the psychotic Canadian (not Vince), I set off on my own to explore. This was a learning curve I didn't expect. I wound up on the "other side of the tracks" or actually the other side of the river, looking for something that did not exist. Trying to communicate is impossible and a little weird with all those pistol-toting Russians. My A 70 doesn't compete. I got to see a side of this town few outsiders have. I was relieved to get back to the hotel, psycho Canadian and all. We had a mind-blowing show. Just a sea of fans singing along to "Paper Monsters" as well as the DM classics.
Deadушки and Butch were the support acts.
