2009-08-01 Borgata, Atlantic City, NJ, USA
Here is the diary entry for Depeche Mode's official tour blog:
The tour touched down for a night at the Borgata Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey last night. Having not been out to see any of the gigs since the stadiums around Europe, I was curious to see how the show would translate to what was ostensibly a large club setting, with about 2500 people. Turning around during Never Let Me Down Again, expecting to see tier upon tier of hands in the air, only to see the ceiling of Borgata's Event Center gave me a good laugh.
This was probably one of the weirdest places I've ever seen any show, really. Walking around the casino floor, you wouldn't have known Depeche Mode were about to take the stage just upstairs. Very surreal. But that's casinos for you, I suppose.
The gig was great - the show looked excellent, and the sound was fantastic. The crowd was into it, and the band seemed to be having a great time on stage.
Next up is New York City...
Peter Bjorn and John were the support act.
According to a 2008 tour list uploaded by PeterToo, this concert was initially planned to take place on 2009-08-27.
