Depeche Mode announce a full European tour

Depeche Mode announce a full European tour.

During a long press conference held in Paris 23rd October Depeche Mode released the dates of their forthcoming European tour, this happened to a video backdrop which contained clips of the bands first new material – the video has now been made available online.

The new tour will come on the heels of their 13th studio album, the first since ‘Sounds of the Universe’ back in 2009 – The album title and release date have yet to be unveiled. The dates should see the band play to some 1.5 million European fans before heading to North America.

And the long running rumour that the band would also announce their split – no, didn’t happen, so for now it remains a rumour.

Below are the tour dates: A single UK date has been announced – seems unlikely that this will remain so; Sunday 30th June is free which would allow a headline appearance at Glastonbury, in addition the Isle Of Wight Festival takes place 13-16th June which would also fit in…Tickets are on sale now

Phil Newall is from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
