Here is the diary entry for Depeche Mode's official tour blog:

"Look, there's the castle."

Castle? As we were on the plane to Carcassonne from Barcelona, while gearing up to land, we noticed what looked like a castle that only an imagination can conjure - well, my imagination, at least. But it was indeed real. The "castle" is in actuality the fortified city of Carcassonne and tonight, we played the Espalanade Gambetta, a town square. It was a unique venue and refreshing from the usual stadium fare. Needles to say, we were all pretty excited to be a part of such a seemingly magical place.

We had a late time slot - 9:30pm stage - so to kill time, a few of us became embroiled in a vicious game of.....foosball. Bodyguards vs. Band. Who won? Just look at Martin's expression and I think you'll be able to figure it out.

See you in Valladolid!
