Depeche Mode London
Depeche Mode is still on their Memento Mori tour which has lasted for a long time already. In January 2024, the band will perform twice in the O2 Arena in London, with a short trip to Birmingham between the two concerts. The first concert is on January 22 while the second concert is on January 27. Would you like to be there at one of the concerts?
As one would expect, all tickets for the Depeche Mode concerts in London were sold out quickly. As a result, you are not likely to find tickets from the official ticket sales offices if you want to be there at one of the concerts. But, if you are willing to pay more and buy ticket second-hand, it is still possible to be there in the O2 Arena at one of the concerts. You can find a link to a second-hand ticket site further down, so use it if you really want to be there at one of the concerts.

Five things you probably didn’t know about Depeche Mode.
Depeche Mode was formed in 1980 in Basildon, Essex, England. The band’s original name was “Composition of Sound” before they settled on “Depeche Mode,” a name they found in a French fashion magazine. The phrase means “fast fashion” in French.
Vince Clarke, one of the founding members of Depeche Mode, left the band after the release of their debut album, “Speak & Spell” (1981). He went on to form other successful musical acts, such as Yazoo (Yaz in the US) and Erasure.
While Depeche Mode is primarily associated with electronic and synth-pop music, they had a significant impact on the goth subculture. Their darker and more introspective tracks, like “Black Celebration” and “Personal Jesus,” attracted a gothic following, and their fashion choices during the 1980s influenced the goth aesthetic.
In 1993, Depeche Mode embarked on their “Devotional Tour,” which became one of the largest and most successful tours in music history at the time. The tour took them to various countries, including locations in Europe, North America, and Asia, and they played for over 2.7 million fans.
Dave Gahan, the band’s lead singer, has pursued a successful solo career alongside his work with Depeche Mode. He has released several solo albums, including “Paper Monsters” and “Hourglass.” This dual career showcases his versatility and creativity as a musician beyond the band’s collective output.
