No news about when Depeche Mode's world tour will resume

Andrew Zweck of Sensible Events, the U.K.-based Live Nation company that organises DM tours, said he’s expecting to be able to make a further announcement within a couple of days.

Gahan was hospitalized two days after opening the Tour Of The Universe in front of a 50,000-capacity crowd at Tel Aviv Ramat Gan Stadium May 10. He was taken in minutes before he was due on stage in Athens.

The Athens show had to be stopped, which was soon followed by the postponement or cancellation of further shows in Istanbul, Bucharest, Sofia, Belgrade, Zagreb, Warsaw, Latvia and Lithuania.

The next scheduled show is London O2 Arena May 30, followed by Holland’s Pink Pop Festival the following day.

Lieberberg, who is promoting the German dates beginning at Hamburg HSH Nordbank Arena June 2, told Pollstar he is still waiting for the go-ahead and expects the act to resume as soon as Gahan has recovered sufficiently.

Lieberberg just won a preliminary injunction in the Munich District Court against Smartfox Media, which has secondary Internet ticket portal Ventic, from trading tickets for his Depeche Modes and any others his company promotes.
