One of my dreams in life is to see Depeche Mode live and it’s looking like that dream may have a chance of coming true next year! The band has posted several European tour dates on their Facebook. The tour will actually kick off in Asia, with a show in Tel Aviv, Israel on May 7th before heading into Europe for a full tour that lasts until July 29th. Afterwards, the band says that they will be bringing the tour to N. America.

Per their Facebook, “Dave Gahan, Martin Gore and Andy Fletcher will play 34 must-see shows in 25 European countries to an audience of more than 1.5 million fans, before taking the tour to North America.” You can see the full touring schedule below.

Playing The Angel is one of my all-time favorite albums. It’s one of those discs that I pop in, hit ‘Play’ and just let it go the whole way through.
