2009-09-01 Lakewood Amphitheater, Atlanta, GA, USA
Here is the diary entry for Depeche Mode's official tour blog:
As we were touching ground in Atlanta, Georgia, gearing up for another spectacular stop on our US leg, all I could think was, "How far are the Coca Cola headquarters from the venue?" Dreams of a life-time supply of Diet Coke took over my imagination.
We played Aaron's Amphitheatre at Lakewood in downtown Atlanta, Georgia, to a crowd of nearly 10,000 - intimate by this tour's standards, which is why it was one of the more memorable gigs I've seen. I can't even begin to describe the exuberant Southern crowd that fervently welcomed the Mode last night; I think the intimacy of the show was more influenced by the intimacy of the people. Southern hospitality and charm, turns out, is not a myth. A lot of bright smiles and enthusiastic cheers characterized the audience, making for one very endearing evening.
Charming? Endearing? Not exactly the sort of words to describe a rock show but what can I say? This SoCal girl was utterly enamored.
Check out some photos from the gig until we see you in Tampa!
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 2009-08-24.
