LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — New Wave icons Depeche Mode are planning to bring their The Delta Machine World Tour to arenas and stadiums in North American this summer.
To help promote the tour, the band an made an appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman" that was preceded by a "Live On Letterman" multi-song set webcast on CBS.com and VEVO.
Depeche Mode is one of the most influential bands of the post-punk era and have notched up more than 100 million in album sales over the course of their career.
"I'm really looking forward to getting out there and performing. 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," said Dave Gahan.
Martin Gore added, "I enjoy being in front of an audience because our songs really take on a life of their own when performed live. When we're performing, the stage almost becomes a mirror for the people who have been there since the beginning, and we become a reflection of our audience. I'm looking forward to this tour for that very reason."
