Notes

The official start of the 2013-2014 Delta Machine Tour. According to Billboard, the attendance was 9.904 people and the gross sale was $678,141. A very good audience recording is provided below. High-resolution artwork scans are also in the torrent, and resized scans (40% of their original) can also be found in the artwork gallery below.

This date had the only full-band performance of A Question Of Lust on this tour.

According to PeterToo on this post at Home:

The band hadn't actually heard the final "backing" arrangement for Never Let Me Down Again until they were on stage in Nice. Elements were changed and added the day before the show, after they had finished the last run-through.

As became clear from footage in a long special about Anton Corbijn called 'Lido' which was broadcast on Bayerisches Fernsehen in December 2014, Depeche Mode also did not get to see Anton's creations for the screen projections until just one or two days before the concert in Nice, when Anton and DM watched the projections being displayed on the stage screen.

Anton did attend the concert but is not known if he also took photos of this concert.

F.O.X. was the support act.
