*previously announced shows
These newly announced shows will bring the band and the Global Spirit Tour back for an encore performance in numerous cities played earlier this summer, while also expanding its reach to fans who haven't yet had a chance to see the musical trendsetters' critically acclaimed tour in support of their new album Spirit. NME has described the tour as "triumphant" and "packed with rock classics and fan favourites."
Throughout the summer European leg of the Live Nation-produced tour, the band have played to sold-out stadiums across Eastern and Western Europe. The summer tour, running from May 5 through July 23, will play to over 1.3 million fans. The tour will then hop across the Atlantic to North America for 30 shows in August, September and October, including a record-breaking four nights at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl, before continuing to stadiums in Latin America in March 2018.
The Global Spirit Tour supports the band's 14th studio album, Spirit, released March 17th via Columbia Records. Spirit has garnered critical acclaim, with MOJO calling it "blow by blow...Depeche Mode's best album in years" and Under the Radar declaring that with Spirit the band "has hit yet another career peak."
