The Exotic Tour/Summer Tour'94 was a 1994 concert tour by English electronic group Depeche Mode in support of the act's eighth studio album, Songs of Faith and Devotion, released in March 1993. The tour is an extension of the Devotional Tour in 1993, which reached North America; the tour visited territories which the band had never performed in or had not toured in for some time, reaching Africa, Asia and South America. The tour commenced in South Africa in early February; as of 2016, this was the last tour the group visited Southeast Asia or South Africa. In May 1994, the group visited North America on the "Summer Tour,'94"; this was the second leg of North American dates promoting Songs of Faith and Devotion and took place in outdoor venues and amphitheatres. The tour marked a tumultuous time for the group, with keyboardist Andrew Fletcher taking leave from touring duties after two months due to "mental instability" and lead singer Dave Gahan's continuing issues with drug addiction. Fletcher was replaced by Daryl Bamonte on all dates from April to July.
This is the last tour with Alan Wilder as a member of Depeche Mode.

The 2011 Los Angeles Galaxy season was the club's 17th year of existence as well as their 16th season in Major League Soccer and their 16th consecutive year in the top-flight of American soccer. The Galaxy entered the season as the defending MLS Supporters' Shield titleholders. Most notably, the Galaxy became the third straight team to win consecutive Supporters' Shields, after D. C. United and Columbus Crew; the Galaxy clinched their fourth Shield on October 8, after Seattle Sounders FC lost 0–2 at home to Philadelphia Union. They won their third MLS Cup, defeating Houston Dynamo 1–0 in the final. Outside of league play, the Galaxy participated in the CONCACAF Champions League and the U. S. Open Cup, reaching the Quarterfinals in both competitions. Along with these competitive tournaments, the Galaxy played in the friendly-match World Football Challenge, losing to Real Madrid and drawing to Manchester City, their record in all competitions was 28–9–11, earning 95/144 points from 48 matches. The Galaxy had a busy month in January with transfers.
On January 10, club striker, Golden Boot-finalist, Edson Buddle left the Galaxy to sign with second division German club, Ingolstadt 04 through the end of the 2012–13 2. Bundesliga season. On January 9, 2010, rumors about David Beckham ending his three and a half year MLS career by signing with Tottenham Hotspur or going on loan with the Premier League club ended; the Galaxy announced that Beckham would be training with Tottenham for two weeks, before joining Los Angeles for the start of pre-season training. The news made it the first time since 2008; the Galaxy opened the MLS regular season with a 0–1 victory over the Sounders at Qwest Field in rainy Seattle on March 15. Second-year midfielder Juninho had the lone goal of the match. Although they were back home at the Home Depot Center for the second match of the season on March 20, the Galaxy once again played in the rain. A rare Southern California rainstorm made for difficult conditions in the 1–1 draw with the New England Revolution. Juninho scored the equalizer for the Galaxy, his second goal of the season – which matched his goal total from his debut 2010 season.
The toughest test of the early season came on March 26 – and the Galaxy failed. Traveling to Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah without captain Landon Donovan, the Galaxy lost 4–1 to Real Salt Lake. To be fair, Rio Tinto is a difficult venue for any visiting club, as Real hasn't lost at home in nearly two years; the only consolation was seeing Juan Pablo Ángel open his Galaxy goal account in his first start for his new club. Ángel didn't start the first two matches. The Galaxy rebounded from the loss to Real Salt Lake with a 1–0 victory over the Philadelphia Union at the Home Depot Center on April 2. Donovan Ricketts and Omar Gonzalez saw their first action of the season after recovering from minor injuries. Leonardo headed in a David Beckham free kick in the 33rd minute for the game's only goal, it was the defender's first goal in a Galaxy shirt. A 53rd minute red card for Chris Birchall meant that the Galaxy had to spend the majority of the second half protecting their narrow lead a man down. Next up was a 3-games-in-8-days cross-country road trip.
To complicate matters, the Galaxy would be without captain Landon Donovan, who did not travel with the club while he nursed a knee injury. The first match of the trip came at RFK Stadium in Washington, D. C. on April 9. Mike Magee nodded in a Beckham corner to give the Galaxy the early lead, but Charlie Davies drew a dubious penalty and converted from the spot himself in the 90th minute to save the draw for D. C. United; the squad traveled to Toronto to take on Toronto FC 4 days later. The fans at BMO Field saw a unentertaining affair resulting in a scoreless draw. Most notable from a Galaxy perspective was the sending off of Juninho in stoppage time of the 2nd half. Beckham received his 5th yellow card of the season in the 44th minute; these two events meant that the Galaxy would be without 3/4ths of their preferred midfield when they finished their trip on April 17 in Bridgeview, Illinois against the Chicago Fire. Yet it was no problem as the Galaxy won 1–2 behind goals from Chad Barrett and Gonzalez with Miguel López providing the assists on both goals.
Although there was one concerning casualty on the Toyota Park field – Leonardo picked up a right knee injury late in the match. It was revealed a couple days that he tore the ACL and LCL in the knee, he is expected to miss the remainder of the season. Heading home to LA, the Galaxy had picked up a respectable 5 points on their travels. Note: Flags indicate national team as defined under FIFA eligibility rules.
