2009-12-06 Hallenstadion, Zurich, Switzerland
Here is the diary entry for Depeche Mode's official tour blog:
I may have found heaven on earth. Such a picturesque city. Beautiful mountainside. Fresh snow. Lovely brisk cold air.
Depeche Mode rocked 2 consecutive gigs at the Hallenstadion to sold-out crowds of 14,000 people a night! The venue is actually an older one - opened in 1939 - but was redesigned in 2005. A host of legendary musicians and bands have played here, including Jimi Hendrix, Queen, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, The Rolling Stones and - one of my personal favorites - The Who.
I was hoping that we could do something different for this blog entry and, if everyone enjoys it, we can try it again for future shows. There were a number of fans in the crowd, from first row to back, who tirelessly took photos of both the Zurich gigs. Our main man Barassi asked all of you through Facebook, MySpace and Twitter to help add concert images to tonight's entry and many of you responded with some incredible pictures. Let's check out the shots that have made the cut!
Thanks for your participation and see you soon in Dublin!
