Depeche Mode's Martin Gore Arrested in Colorado
On the night of November 4, 1993, Depeche Mode performed at McNichols Arena in Denver, Colorado as part of the band's Devotional Tour.
However, following the concert, guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Martin Gore had a bit of a rude awakening courtesy of Denver's finest.
According to Gore, a loud party had taken place in his hotel room at the Westin Hotel the night before the concert with roughly 50 people in attendance, much to the chagrin of the hotel guests and employees.
The following night, Gore and a friend were allegedly listening to music at a reasonable volume and received multiple complaints about the noise, eventually turning the music completely off.
However, that didn't stop the police from paying the musician a visit who, after answering a knock at the door, was allegedly thrown onto the hotel bed, handcuffed, and taken to jail.
Gore spent the next 18 hours in a cell before being released and charged with disorderly conduct, a charge to which he pleaded guilty, and paid a fine of $50.
