Peru? Chile? Depeche Mode rep disputes

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.

Depechemode.com 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.

The South American neighbors are historic rivals who fought a 19th century war and still argue over everything from their border to which country is the originator of pisco, a potent grape brandy.
