One of the most influential, beloved and best-selling musical acts of all time, Depeche Mode have sold over 100 million records and played live to more than 30 million fans worldwide. Formed in 1981, Depeche Mode – Martin Gore, Dave Gahan and Andy Fletcher – continue to win critical and commercial acclaim around the world both in the studio and on the road, with innumerable artists citing them as inspirations and innovators. The band’s 13 studio albums have reached the Top Ten in over 20 countries, including the US and UK. Their last studio album, 2013’s Delta Machine, debuted at #1 in 12 countries around the world, and launched a world tour that saw the band play to more than 2.5 million fans. In fall 2016, Depeche Mode’s Video Singles Collection, a definitive 3 DVD library anthology containing more than four hours of their groundbreaking music videos, was released by SONY Music Entertainment. Their 14th studio album Spirit and the Global Spirit Tour are poised to continue the band’s history of musical innovation and the band’s critical and commercial success.
Following an extensive European summer tour, the 28 show North American run, exclusively promoted by Live Nation, will kick off on August 23rd in Salt Lake City, UT and will stop in 26 cities across the United States and Canada, before wrapping up in Edmonton, Alberta on October 27th.

Long celebrated for quality videos as innovative and provocative as the music they make, Depeche Mode also recently released a compelling visual for “Going Backwards.” The stunning video, featuring a stripped-back performance of the track and filmed in 360 degree technology, can be seen online here:http://smarturl.it/GoingBackwards360. The video was directed by Timothy Saccenti, known for his immersive photographic style, and features Depeche Mode in a stylized, full-scale video experience.
Spirit was produced by James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco, and marks the band’s first collaboration with Ford (Foals, Florence & The Machine, Arctic Monkeys) and serves as the follow up to the band’s blockbuster 2013 album Delta Machine, which debuted at #1 in 12 countries.
