“I’m really looking forward to getting out there and performing,” Dave Gahan said.  “There are so many die hard Depeche Mode fans who have been with us every step of this journey that I can’t wait to see.  I also hope that we gain some new fans with the release of Delta Machine, and I look forward to exposing them to a great Depeche Mode live performance.”
