This concert was added to the tour dates list on April 29th 2009. According to Billboard, the attendance was 25,468 out of 35,000 people and they grossed $1,809,877. Go here for a radio interview with Andy Fletcher before the show.

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

Our last gig of the Latin American tour. I had been waiting anxiously to get to Buenos Aires. Well, I should point out that many of our Latin American stops were foreign and new to a number of people on the tour - including myself. San Diego is about as far south of Los Angeles (my hometown) as I've been. Making Mexico a Spring Break destination when in college was never a big interest of mine. I'm glad that I waited patiently because my experiences in Mexico with Depeche Mode - as well as Central and South America - have made for some incredibly fond memories.

With that said, however, Buenos Aires was a home away from home. I felt familiar with the city despite never having been. And the crowd at Club Ciudad? 32,000 devotees showed us some real Latin love - no better way to end another successful leg.

Check out the photos and live vicariously...

See you in Europe!

  • Source 1 is a good sounding, complete soundboard recording - unfortunately, it's lossy.
  • Source 2 is a 5-track, lossless soundboard recording from the same source as Source 1. Probably a "teaser" released by whomever recorded the soundboard.
  • Source 3 is an 18-track "Radio Metro" FM broadcast recording.
  • Source 4 is a webstream of the first 6 tracks of the concert. It is a fairly low-resolution and mediocre quality video.
