Depeche Mode to play Teenage Cancer Trust gig

Band set for first ever gig at Royal Albert Hall

Depeche Mode will play at the Royal Albert Hall in London next year.

The band will perform at the venue for the first time on February 17 for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The show is the first announced in the charity’s annual run of gigs, which this year will mark the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the UK’s first teenage cancer unit.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be a part of Teenage Cancer Trust,” said Depeche Mode‘s Martin Gore. “We’ve never played the Royal Albert Hall before, so we’re really looking forward to that too.”

Tickets go on sale on Friday (December 18). To check the availability of Depeche Mode tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.

To mark the show, a limited edition run of 12 watches – one for each of the band’s studio albums – have been created by watchmakers Hublot and will be sold via auction on .
