LOS ANGELES, CA (March 11, 2013) – Depeche Mode, one of modern music’s most influential groups with album sales in excess of 100 million, will bring THE DELTA MACHINE WORLD TOUR to North America this summer. As pioneers of the post-punk era and the most popular electronic band of all-time, they continue to draw legions of loyal fans to arenas and stadiums around the world to experience their once-in-a-lifetime performances. Depeche Mode will kick off their tour on August 22nd at the DTE Energy Music Theatre in Detroit with shows scheduled through October 8th at the Desert Sky Pavilion in Phoenix, AZ. Tickets go on sale to the public on Saturday, April 6th on LiveNation.com.
“I’m really looking forward to getting out there and performing. There are so many die hard Depeche Mode fans who have been with us every step of this journey that I can’t wait to see. I also hope that we gain some new fans with the release of Delta Machine, and I look forward to exposing them to a great Depeche Mode live performance,” said Dave Gahan.
Martin Gore added, “I enjoy being in front of an audience because our songs really take on a life of their own when performed live. When we’re performing, the stage almost becomes a mirror for the people who have been there since the beginning, and we become a reflection of our audience. I’m looking forward to this tour for that very reason.”
The band will make a rare U.S. television appearance tonight on “The Late Show with David Letterman” which will be preceded by a “Live On Letterman” multi-song set webcast on CBS.com and VEVO, Monday, March 11 (8:00 PM, ET/5:00 PM, PT).
