Depeche Mode cancel second show due to Dave Gahan hospitalisation

Singer became ill with gastroenteritis earlier this week

Depeche Mode have been forced to cancel a second show in reaction to Dave Gahan being hospitalised earlier this week (May 12).

The star was rushed to hospital before the band took the stage for their Athens show, after being struck with a severe bout of gastroenteritis. As a result, tonight’s (May 14) gig at the Santral venue in Istanbul has now been cancelled.

A statement posted on the band’s official website, Depechemode.com, advises fans to hold on to their tickets.

The statement read: “Dave fell ill with a severe bout of gastroenteritis shortly before he was due onstage in Athens which resulted in his immediate hospitalisation. At this stage, Dave‘s primary concern is to return to full health and resume the tour as soon as possible.

“Fans in Athens and Istanbul have been advised to hold onto their tickets as an announcement will be made shortly with regard to rescheduled dates or cancellation.”
