many die hard Depeche Mode fans who have been with us every step of this journey

release of Delta Machine, and I look forward to exposing them to a great Depeche
Mode live performance," said  Dave Gahan.

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."
