Depeche Mode had to cancel their concert at the Terra Vibe Park in Athens, Greece last night when frontman Dave Gahan was rushed to hospital.
The band have only just begun their Tour of the Universe on the back of the new album Sounds of the Universe, last night was only their third date of the massive world tour. Gahan is reported to have collapsed backstage just prior to their set beginning and a doctor was called to the dressing room. Xfm are reporting that the illness is gastroenteritis, but Gahan who has a history of drug use was rushed to an Athens hospital.
The band’s management are hopeful that Gahan will be well enough to perform in Istanbul tomorrow night. Tickets are still on sale for the band’s shows in the UK later this month and then in December.
