DEPECHE MODE FORCED TO CANCEL TONIGHT’S CHICAGO SHOW AND ENDED LAST NIGHT’S KANSAS CITY SHOW EARLIER THAN EXPECTED DUE TO SINGER DAVE GAHAN’S LARYNGITIS
BAND OFFER SINCERE APOLOGIES TO FANS AND THANK THEM FOR THEIR LONGTIME SUPPORT
DEPECHE MODE has to unfortunately cancel tonight’s (Thursday, May 11) performance at the Allstate Arena in Chicago as lead singer DAVE GAHAN has laryngitis. After seeing a doctor in Chicago this morning, he was advised to cancel the show and rest his voice. At this time, a make-up show is not planned due to the band’s scheduling but management is looking into it. Tickets for Chicago will be refunded at point of purchase.
Meanwhile, the group had to regrettably end their show last night (May 10) at the Starlight Amphitheatre in Kansas City, MO earlier than expected. Coming off three concerts in Mexico, GAHAN’s voice was challenged throughout the concert by the unusually cold temperatures at the venue.
An hour into the concert – after the segment where MARTIN GORE sings a few songs – GAHAN was unable to return as he lost his voice, leaving GORE to continue on lead vocals for another 25 minutes or so.
DEPECHE MODE offer their sincerest apologies to their fans in Kansas City and Chicago and want to thank them for their longtime and dedicated support.
DEPECHE MODE’s next scheduled show will take place Saturday, May 13 at Jones Beach Amphitheatre in Wantagh, NY.
Uhh…folks, I don’t buy this BS liberal press release. I back the theory that Dave Gahan was attacked by a goddamn rabid bat.
