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

Oh, Phoenix. Just when we thought we escaped the Vegas heat. More interesting desert weather to come.

We played the US Airways Center In Phoenix, Arizona, home to the Phoenix Suns. Naturally, the majority of car conversation revolved around sports; Football versus American football; American baseball versus Cricket. I chimed in with a bit of my limited sports knowledge (I played dodge ball in elementary school, if that counts for anything) but fell short of getting into a serious debate on Chelsea versus InterMilan and the intricacies of the American sports draft system. All I could think about was playing Phoenix that night, another place I had never visited!

The gig was great and the crowd was truly energetic. Check out some photos!
