2010-01-17 Stade Couvert, Liévin, France
This concert was added to the tour dates list on June 3rd.
Here is the diary entry for Depeche Mode's official tour blog:
The guys were enormously happy with their gig in Lieven, an old mining city in northern France. To the Mode's surprise, the city offered 12,000 people who were prepared to rock out at the Stade Couvert venue in the city center. Slowly but surely, as Martin, Peter, Andy and Christian were embroiled in a bitter and, ultimately, devastating, game of foosball, thousands of supporters trickled in through the entrance of the venue, which is one of largest in France.
By 9pm, the our boys were performing the usual pre-stage round-up and hand-slap with everyone around them. I've been known to give a fist bump or two....for good luck.
The Mode were an even happier bunch post-show than they were were pre-show. As Andy and Christian explained to me in the van on the way back to our hotel, "They were just a damn good crowd!"

See you in Antwerp!
