Dave got severe gastroenteritis, food poisoning. Must have had a bad birthday dinner Poor guy. Hope he recovers quickly!!! He, of all people, needs to stay hydrated since he exerts so much energy at every show. I could see him being out at least a week.

Last I heard/read, his only vice these days is cigarettes, and that was a few years ago so he may have quit since then. Other than that, he is completely sober, into health foods and drinks, does yoga and pilates regularly . . . basically he really takes care of himself these days. And you can tell! When I saw them at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel, we were first up to the rail and let me tell you . . . that man's body is AMAZING! I've never seen such flawless, alabaster skin from a torso up. Plus, he's a good 15 years older than me and in about a million times better shape! :jealous:

Every tour he says he is going to stop smoking and it hasn't happened yet, he said it again when they were rehearsing for this tour. At least he is trying. I know he runs about 3-5 miles 5-6 days a week, perhaps not on tour, but the rest of the time. He does have some damage to some internal organs from the drug use back in the day, so he does have to be careful when he gets sick, from things like this, which is why they are doing extra testing, I am sure.

:worried:

They canceled their Polish show as well and, according to a Warsaw newspaper, the doctors have found bacteria in Dave that is usually present in patient's with colon cancer. .

Hopefully, he just has a really bad case of that gastrointestinewhatchacallit and the doctors are just being overly cautious. Apparently, just because that bacteria is present does not automatically mean there's colon cancer.

That Warsaw article is a rumor. The Polish show HAS been cancelled. No health statement or information has been public, everything has been rumor. Rumors have ranged from what has been released with gasteroenteritis to Dave is dead, the cancer thing has been floating around for the last week, too. Official info from Live Nation is as follows:

Doctors have advised that more time is needed to allow singer, Dave Gahan, to fully recover from his recent illness and ensure that the tour can resume shortly. Depeche Mode apologize to all their fans for this inconvenience and wish Dave a speedy recovery. Ticket holders above for the show are advised to hold onto their tickets, as an announcement will be made shortly with regard to whether the date will be rescheduled, or canceled altogether.

Dave's brother implied that London at O2 will be his first show back, but I guess it depends on his recovery - hoping Dave recovers quickly and well!
