A Memorable Tour by an Unforgettable Band 

The band’s Memento Mori World Tour was launched in support of their 15th studio album, “Memento Mori.” Commencing on March 23, 2023, this tour marks the band’s first without keyboardist Andy Fletcher.

This tour was initially revealed on October 4, 2022, coinciding with the announcement of the “Memento Mori” album, during an event in Berlin. Furthermore, an additional North American leg with 34 new shows was unveiled on February 16, 2023.

Originally composed of Dave Gahan, Martin Gore, Andy Fletcher, and Vince Clarke, the band’s current lineup features Gahan (handling lead vocals and co-songwriting) and Gore (handling keyboards, guitar, co-lead vocals, and primary songwriting).

In 1981, Depeche Mode introduced their debut album, Speak & Spell, into the British new wave scene. Their second album, A Broken Frame (1982), was recorded as a trio after Clarke left the band. Gore took on the role of the main songwriter, and Alan Wilder stepped in for Clarke, solidifying a lineup that remained intact for 13 years. Albums like Black Celebration (1986) and Music for the Masses (1987) solidified their status as a prominent presence in the electronic and alternative music scenes, while their June 1988 performance at the Pasadena Rose Bowl attracted an audience of over 60,000 people.

They were nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017 and 2018, eventually being inducted in 2020.
