LOS ANGELES (AP) - October 15, 2009 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.
