Depeche Mode tour 2013 : European dates surface on eve of press conference

Depeche Mode is set to hold a press conference in Paris tomorrow, where the band is expected to announce details of its next studio album, which is due out next spring, and plans for yet another massive world tour, its first since the global outing in support of 2009’s Sounds of the Universe.

Rumored dates have been floating around for a while now, but today, both Pitchfork and Under the Radar are reporting the following 34-date European itinerary as having been “announced” by the band, although it’s not likely we’ll see official confirmation until tomorrow.

North American dates are supposedly set to follow the European run, which reportedly includes arena, stadium and festival dates.

The press conference is set for 13:30 CET (7:30 a.m. Eastern in the U.S.) tomorrow and will be streamed live at

  1. There ain’t no Olympic Stadium in Prague…

  2. Is Dave in the middle of starring in Saturday Night Fever 2: Elecric Bugaloo? What a suit!

  3. While I do get that they’re not getting any younger and they can’t play everywhere, I’m quite baffled by the Germany 7, Holland 0 ratio

  4. nelieši. man bija biļete uz iepriekšējo tūri un maitas neatbrauca. un tagad nemaz nebrauks uz Rīgu.
