Depeche Mode cancels shows while Dave Gahan gets better – canceled & all 2009 Tour Dates

Good point: “WTF. BV still hasn’t posted anything about Dave Gahan being hospitalized and DM cancelling concerts.” [Anonymous]

Depeche Mode


Depeche Mode have been forced to cancel two shows on their ‘Sounds of the Universe’ tour, yesterday’s show in Athens (May 12) and tomorrow’s show in Istanbul (May 14), due to the illness of singer Dave Gahan.

Dave fell ill with a severe bout of gastroenteritis shortly before he was due onstage in Athens which resulted in his immediate hospitalization. At this stage, Dave’s primary concern is to return to full health and resume the tour as soon as possible.

Fans in Athens and Istanbul have been advised to hold onto their tickets as an announcement will be made shortly with regard to rescheduled dates or cancellation.
