Depeche Mode pull Portugese show

They claim that suppliers have not been paid

Depeche Mode pull Portugese show
Depeche Mode have called off a massive show in Portugal after a dispute with promoters.

The electronica veterans’ world tour was due to call at the Alvalade Stadium in Lisbon on Friday (July 28).

But the band have now pulled the show amid claims that the promoter, Brand New Day did not pay supplier’s bills, making it impossible for them to play.

Their spokesperson told BBC News that companies involved in the production “had not received any money and logistically the show couldn’t happen”.

Rebuffing rumours of poor tickets sales, she added that 75 percent of tickets for the show had been sold, adding: “I don’t know where all the ticket money went.”

Depeche Mode themselves have issued a statement apologising to disappointed fans, and advising them to seek a refund from the point of purchase.
