Depeche Mode have confirmed a flurry of support acts for next year’s massive European tour.
The synth legends returned this year, sharing their bold, and often emotional album ‘Memento Mori’. A record of loss and survival, Depeche Mode touched on some key subjects, while also embracing a form of electronic renewal.
At the time, Clash writer Jack Oxford called it their best album of the 21st century:
Fans of Depeche Mode can be happy to receive the band’s best offering of this century (though don’t get it twisted, ‘Playing The Angel’ is still a great record) but it’s unlikely they’ll change the minds of non-listeners, as foolish as such people are. The same ground is tread here, just in new shoes.
A terrific live act, the band have laid out plans for a massive European tour in 2024. As ever, the support acts have been carefully curated, with North East songwriter – and a whirlwind live act – Nadine Shah set to join Depeche Mode.
Nadine will play London, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow, as well as joining the synth icons in Dublin, Antwerp, Amsterdam and Copenhagen.
Commenting online, Nadine Shah wrote: “Ten years ago I opened for Depeche Mode around Germany. They’re my ride or die band. This January I join them again cause I JUST CANT GET ENOUGH.”
Elsewhere, Humanist, Suzie Stapleton and Deeper will split the remaining shows.
