After European and North American Tours, Depeche Mode to Return for Four Arena Shows in UK and Ireland
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., June 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Following an incredible, sold-out homecoming show on Saturday night at London Stadium, Depeche Mode are excited to announce that they will return to the UK and Ireland for four indoor shows in November of 2017. The tour of Ireland and the UK will kick off November 15 at Dublin’s 3Arena before continuing to Manchester, Birmingham and London.
Saturday night’s sold-out show in London that saw the band play to over 68,000 people served as a triumphant return to the UK following an exceptionally intimate performance in March at Glasgow’s Barrowlands Ballroom as part of the BBC’s 6Music Festival. While the London Stadium show was the only UK stop on this summer’s stadium leg of the Global Spirit Tour, these new fall dates will give the band the opportunity to play to fans elsewhere in the UK and for fans to see the tour that critics have hailed as a “sensational triumph” and the band Mixmag describes as “apocalyptically thrilling on the live stage.”
The summer European leg of the Live Nation-produced Global Spirit Tour has brought the band to sold-out stadiums across Eastern and Western Europe since the first show in Stockholm on May 5, with shows continuing through July 23. The tour will then hop across the Atlantic to North America for 30 shows in August, September and October, including a record-breaking four nights at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, before continuing to stadiums in Latin America in March 2018.
The Global Spirit Tour supports the band’s 14th studio album, Spirit, released March 17th via Columbia Records. The album’s powerful and timely first single, “Where’s The Revolution“, has been well-received by critics and fans alike, lauded as a strong “return to form” for Depeche Mode. Spirit has already garnered critical acclaim, with MOJO calling it “blow by blow…Depeche Mode’s best album in years.”

On the Global Spirit Tour, the band continue their charity partnership with Swiss watch maker Hublot, raising money and awareness for charity: water and furthering their mission of providing safe drinking water to everyone in the world.
