Depeche Mode Rep Denies Incorrect Shout-out

LOS ANGELES – A Depeche Mode representative is disputing reports that the British pop band’s lead singer inadvertently sent a shout-out to the wrong country at a concert in Peru.

Peruvian news media buzzed with the story after a video of Tuesday’s performance was posted on Youtube. In the clip, it sounds as though frontman Dave Gahan shouts “Thank you very much, Chile!” to a sea of cheering fans. web master Daniel Barassi denied the faux pas took place via email. According to Barassi, Gahan actually said: “Thank you very much, good night!” as he customarily does at the end of a show.

    Sounds like “Good Night” to me. If that is what he says every night out, why would he change just for Peru?

    I don’t even know how this became a big debate. Dave very clearly says, “Thank you very much, goodnight!” …and anyone who has ever been to a few DM shows know that he always says that at the end of the show….he never gives a “shout out” to the City/Country he’s in. That happens near the beginning of the show. And regardless of this well known routine, all you have to do is listen to the recording! “Thank you very much, goodnight!” is crystal clear. Anyone who is hearing “goodnight” as “Chile” needs to pull the cotton out of their ears and go get a hearing test.
