The talented and beloved David Gahan, lead singer of Depeche Mode, fell in his dressing room Tuesday night just before the band’s performance, and was rushed to a hospital in Athens, Greece.
Depeche Mode had to cancel their performance in Athens due to David’s unknown reason for collapsing.
David might be suffering from ‘gastroenteritis’ (stomach flu). According to Rolling Stone. The band members just released this statement
about David’s condition and DM tour:
“Dave is currently undergoing further tests.” “Depeche Mode apologizes to all their fans for this inconvenience and wish Dave a speedy recovery.”
Depeche Mode also just cancelled another show in Istanbul! Looks like they are holding off on a whole list of venues now…
The nixed shows affect:
Bucharest, Romania; Sofia, Bulgaria; Belgrade, Serbia; and Zagreb, Croatia and the tour is shut down until at least May 21st. Ticket holders for all the shows are advised to hold on to their tickets as announcements regarding rescheduled dates or cancellations will be made shortly.
Depeche Mode has been currently promoting their new album, Sounds of the Universe, with shows original scheduled through February 2010.
We love you! We’re going to your show in August! Positive and warm thoughts to David.
