2010-02-08 Palace of Sports, Kiev, Ukraine
This concert was added to the tour dates list on September 9th.
Here is the diary entry for Depeche Mode's official tour blog:
February 8th marked the first time Depeche Mode played a concert in Kiev so the expectations, mixed with the excitement that comes with being in a new place, were high. And the fans in Ukraine certainly met those expectations - 10,000 adorned the Palace of Sports this week to give the Mode one of the best reactions to date.
Our boys are always happy to see new faces and places; their eagerness was quite obvious when we landed in Kiev and they greeted the fans who had been waiting outside of the airport for hours, just to catch a glimpse of them on their first official visit to the country. On the ride to the airport, Andy and Kerry were discussing the wonders of Chicken Kiev. Is it a traditional dish? We debated about it but they all agreed that it was delicious and had to be tried while there. Luckily, it was on the menu a couple of nights later in Poland and it was every bit as good as the boys said it would be. We also discovered that the dish did not originate in Kiev and while people are unsure as to its true origin, some historians say it was created in Moscow! Looks like Andy won that argument. What can I say? He's a history buff and he's usually right!
Check out some photos from another amazing night.
Nitzer Ebb was the support act.
