Depeche Mode unveil 2013 U.S. tour dates -- St. Paul in August
One of the blackest celebrations around just began with the announcement of Depeche Mode's new world tour. The shows are in support of DM's Delta Machine -- familiar initials, eh? The album, coming later this month, is the synth-pop superstars' first since 2009's Sounds of the Universe.
Running August 22 through October 8, the trek takes upon a down-home flavor upon its visit to the Twin Cities. Yes, as improbable as it might seem, Depeche Mode will perform at the 2013 Minnesota State Fair. Goths who love deep-fried candy bars and 1919 Root Beer, let's see a show of hands! The entire itinerary is below.
Depeche Mode will release Delta Machine on Tuesday, March 26. Here's the first single/video from the album, "Heaven."
And for the folks who need their gratification long before the funnel cakes start cooking, Depeche Mode will perform on Late Show With David Letterman tonight (Monday, March 11)!
