Depeche Mode To Bring Their 'Global Spirit Tour' To Latin America In March 2018
For the first time in nine years, Depeche Mode will tour Latin America, bringing their stunning live show to fans who have not seen the band since 2009's Tour of the Universe.
"We're incredibly excited to return to Latin America," says lead singer Dave Gahan. "We weren't able to see our fans there on the last tour, so we knew we had to visit this time."
Following this summer's massive European summer stadium tour and the upcoming fall tour of North America, the band will continue to extend the Global Spirit Tour with two weeks of stadium shows across Latin America in March 2018. The tour will begin on March 11th in Mexico City, continue through Bogota, Lima, Santiago and Buenos Aires, before wrapping up in Sao Paulo on March 27th. The Latin American tour is being promoted by Live Nation, continuing their global partnership with Depeche Mode. Details on all ticket on-sale dates will follow.
The Global Spirit Tour supports the band's 14th studio album, Spirit, released March 17th via Columbia Records. The album's powerful and timely first single, "Where's The Revolution," has been well-received by critics and fans alike, lauded as a strong "return to form" for Depeche Mode. Spirit has already garnered critical acclaim, with MOJO calling it "blow by blow…Depeche Mode's best album in years."
