According to Fletch, the Essex synth warriors' Global Spirit Tour will hit these shores during its winter stint…
Mega-selling electro act Depeche Mode have just released their fourteenth studio album, Spirit, and the band will be hitting the road next month to tour it around the world. Kicking off in Stockholm on May 5th, the first leg of their Global Spirit Tour will see Basildon's finest rock export play to over 1.5 million fans at 34 shows throughout stadiums in 21 countries in Europe and North and South America.
No Irish date has been announced yet – but Hot Press has learned that Dublin will certainly be included in the itinerary.
Hot Press ‘writer-at-large’ Olaf Tyaransen interviewed keyboardist, bassist and founding member Andrew ‘Fletch’ Fletcher in London last week. He asked him if the band would be playing Ireland.
“Yeah, we’re playing Ireland in the winter tour,” Fletch answered. “I don’t know when details of that’ll be announced. It’d be around June, I would have thought. The last gig was just absolutely fantastic, and we also played Belfast as well. Dublin is always a good crowd.”
You can read the full, fascinating interview in the issue of Hot Press that hits the streets this week.
