Following succesful European and North American Tour, Depeche Mode is going to play Arena Riga in Latvia. Depeche Mode will visit Riga for the first time in four years, bringing their stunning live show to fans who have not seen the band since 2014’s World Tour of Delta Machine.
Following this summer’s massive European summer stadium tour and the upcoming fall tour of North America, the band will continue to extend the Global Spirit Tour with the show in Latvia in February 2018. The show will take place on February 20th in Arena Riga.
Tickets for the newly announced Global Spirit Tour concert in Riga will go on sale on Thursday, July 6 at 10am through www.bilesuserviss.lv. Members of promoter’s FBI Concert Club will take advantage of a special pre-sale beginning Wednesday, July 5 at 10am (all times local).
The Global Spirit Tour supports the band’s 14th studio album, Spirit, released in March via Columbia Records. The album’s powerful and timely first single, Where’s The Revolution, has been well-received by critics and fans alike, lauded as a strong “return to form” for Depeche Mode. Spirit has already garnered critical acclaim, with MOJO calling it “blow by blow…Depeche Mode’s best album in years.”
