Embarking on their first campaign since 2018's Global Spirit Tour, and Dave Gahan and Martin Gore's first tour as a duo following the passing of Andy Fletcher, Depeche Mode and their crew will traverse over 70 locations - presenting 15 albums and four decades worth of material, including tracks from the band's latest studio album, Memento Mori, to live music fans throughout the United States.
