Deutsche Telekom Partners With Depeche Mode On 2013 Summer European Tour
Deutsche Telekom will be partnering with Depeche Mode for a series of 16 dates across nine countries as part of their European Summer Tour 2013. You can get tickets through www.telekom-streetgigs.de and also enter a competition to win a meet and greet with the band.
There will also be the chance for you, the fans, to get involved. Followers of the band are called to participate in a unique exhibition by contributing personal memorabilia and artwork. A virtual show will then be curated on here at Electronic Beats, while selected cities such as Berlin, Warsaw, Budapest, Zagreb or Prague will each host an exhibition of the greatest items. The Twitter, Instagram and Google+ hashtag for all events and updates is #DEMB13.
Wolfgang Kampbartold, Vice President of International Marketing Communications & Sponsoring by Deutsche Telekom, speaking on the partnership had this to say, “Our tagline ‘Life is for sharing’ is at the heart of our activities when supporting music events. Depeche Mode are global music icons, famous for their incredibly loyal and communicative fans and of course for their fantastic gigs. We are pleased the band backs our vision and be working with Deutsche Telekom as tour partner. Together with the Depeche Mode community we want to create a unique fan experience using our technology, products and services.”
Dave Gahan echoes Kampbartold’s views: “It’s always been important for us to harness innovative technology to make each tour bigger and better than the last. With the support of Deutsche Telekom we’ll be able to allow more people than ever before to share and take part in our upcoming European tour, no matter where they are.”
