Band cancel Athens performance

Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan was rushed to the hospital in Athens today (May 12) after reportedly falling ill just before a concert scheduled to take place there.

The band were forced to cancel tonight’s performance in the Greek capital as a result.

“We regret today’s performance has to be canceled… David Gahan fell ill in his dressing room,” a concert organiser told the audience of about 20,000, reports Reuters.

The frontman was suffering from suspected gastroenteritis, with the band’s spokesperson saying that the illness is likely to be short-lived and shouldn’t affect further tour dates.

The band kicked off their world tour last week (May 6) in Luxembourg.
