Dave Gahan Explains Depeche Mode Tour
Depeche Mode have unveiled a 22-date North American tour in support of their upcoming album, Sounds of the Universe (due April 21), set to kick off July 24 in Toronto.
According to singer Dave Gahan, the tour’s staging is being co-designed by famed photographer and filmmaker Anton Corbijn, and it will be as moody as the band’s music. “Some of the drawings I’ve seen Anton and our stage crew working on, there’s going to be a lot of light and shade and mood,” he tells SPIN.com. Gahan also leaks the fact that the group is considering using Universe track ‘In Chains’ to open every show. “There’s something about that song that’s really about how the album unfolds… it’s very filmic.”
