Depeche Mode’s Tour Path Across the Universe

with one comment

Depeche Mode at the O2 Arena, London

The UK new-wave / goth outfit (“Depressed Mode,” one of my favorite band nicknames) is preparing to launch its world tour, the ambitiously titled Tour of the Universe. The avalanche of awesome begins Wednesday, May 6 with a warm-up show in Luxembourg, and ends (for now) December 18 in Manchester. The group had reportedly planned to end it in Florida in September, but recently added six extra Europe and UK dates.

The schedule is below. I will be eagerly descending upon the first Hollywood Bowl show. Cheers.
