2010-02-11 Łódź Arena, Łódź, Poland
This concert was added to the tour dates list on August 1st 2009.
Here is the diary entry for Depeche Mode's official tour blog:
Woke up to find even more snow had arrived during the night - like there wasn't enough already !!
Got to the venue around 1pm, and because it's a "double nighter" there isn't a great deal for them to do today. The sound guys ran a quick line check, and parts of "Master and Servant" were played - that got me excited.
The doors opened at 5.30pm tonight, it was roughly -20 outside - and it seemed pointless keeping people waiting in the snow when everything was ready to go inside. The usual mad rush to the front was a spectacle, with people tripping over, screaming and yelling "de-peche mode" repeatedly.
Nitzer Ebb delivered a fantastic set, and are getting a great reaction from the crowd - and the guys can often be seen watching Depeche from the side of the stage.
The gig was again just perfect - the Polish crowd are the loudest I have heard, and so passionate for all things Depeche. I have seen some great shows on this tour, and the crowds have been fantastic - but seriously Lodz wins the Best Audience category for me, they blew me away.
Again for "Policy of Truth" we had around 1000 balloons appear like magic and disappear just as quickly, then there's the never ending chant of "de-peche mode" between each track, and if it's not the noise from the crowd it's the look on their faces - tears, laughter, amazement - everyone was loving the show, everyone was dancing, it felt like a huge party.
We didn't get "Master and Servant" tonight as had been hoped by last night's crowd, we got "Comeback" and "Judas", and we also got a fantastic performance from the band, the bands energy was feeding a crowd that were already at boiling point, the Lodz gigs were just fantastic.
The tour rolls on to Zagreb now - and I am heading home to the UK.
Lodz - you were amazing.
