Depeche Mode cancel three more shows

Dave Gahan under orders to rest

Depeche Mode have cancelled three further gigs in order to allow frontman Dave Gahan to recover from illness.

The frontman was recently hit by a bout of severe gastroenteritis, forcing the cancellation of a series of European shows earlier this month.

To allow his recovery three further shows, at the Warsaw Gwardia Stadium (May 23), Riga Skonto Stadium (25) and Vilnius Zalgiris Stadium (27), have also been cancelled.

A message on Depeche Mode‘s official website, Depechemode.com, advised fans to retain their tickets and wait for news about whether the gigs would be rescheduled or cancelled outright.

The message explained that, “Doctors have advised that more time is needed to allow singer, Dave Gahan, to fully recover from his recent illness and ensure that the tour can resume shortly.

Depeche Mode apologise to all their fans for this inconvenience and wish Dave a speedy recovery.”
