Depeche Mode touring in the fall

Seems like EVERYONE is touring this year!! I've already been to quite a few U2 shows this year and have tickets for Coldplay, Oasis, White Stripes and more U2 in the fall. Now it looks like I'll be seeing Depeche Mode this year, too. With my luck DM will be playing in Phoenix while I'm off seeing U2 elsewhere.


Depeche Mode plots return with new album, world tour

Depeche Mode is eyeing an autumn release for its first new album in four years, and is laying the groundwork for a world tour behind the set.
The trio plans to launch its global assault with a North American outing slated for October, November and December. A preliminary list of cities that the band plans to hit is included below; specific dates and venues have not yet been announced.

A subsequent run through Europe is planned for early next year, and a number of shows for that leg of the tour have been confirmed. Details are available at Depeche Mode's website.

Before hitting the road, the group is expected to issue its follow-up to 2001's "Exciter." The band--singer David Gahan, chief songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Martin Gore and keyboardist Andrew Fletcher--is still working on the as-yet-untitled set in New York City.

Released in June of 2001, the gold-certified "Exciter" debuted at No. 8 on The Billboard 200 album chart. After completing a tour behind the set, Gore and Gahan each issued albums, with Gore's first full-length, "Counterfeit2," surfacing in late April of 2003, and Gahan's solo debut, "Paper Monsters," following about a month later.

Formed in England in the 1980s, Depeche Mode gained mainstream success with its 1990 album, "Violator." The triple-platinum set--which spawned the hits "Enjoy the Silence," "Policy of Truth" and "Personal Jesus"--remains the group's most commercially successful release.

Weird.. The European itinerary for next year's Depeche Mode tour is already set and tickets for some of the shows went on sale yesterday. No US dates have been set though.

Phoenix is a winner! Mofo, I'll have my people get in touch with your people. Between PHX and SLC, we should be able to cut a deal.

I wasn't a huge fan of Exciter, but I saw them back in 2001 (three days or so after U2) and it was great. (Dave Gahan is one sexy beast, too. )

Dave Gahan was great on stage.....the last time I saw them was in 2001, I'm sorry to say that the magic wasn't there anymore.

Alan Wilder, the 4th member of Depeche Mode, left the group in 1995, after the "Songs of Faith & Devotion" Tour of 93/94. Since then, DM has been the trio of Gore, Gahan, and Fletcher. I really like 1990's Violator, of course, but follow-up Songs of Faith, as well as 1997's Ultra, have some terrific later tunes as well.

I saw them on their 1998 Greatest Hits tour, terrific in concert. Unfortunately, 2001's Exiter was a non-starter with me and most everyone else.
