Other cities they are set to cover include Glasgow, Dublin, Berlin, Paris, Barcelona and plenty more.

The tour showcases live performances of their first album in five years as well as their first release since the sudden passing of fellow co-founder Andy Fletcher in May 2022.

Martin Gore previously said: “We started work on this project early in the pandemic, and its themes were directly inspired by that time. After Fletch’s passing, we decided to continue as we’re sure this is what he would have wanted, and that has really given the project an extra level of meaning.”

Dave Gahan added: “Fletch would have loved this album. We’re really looking forward to sharing it with you soon, and we can’t wait to present it to you live at the shows next year.”

Tickets to their tour will go on general sale at 10:AM, July 15, here.
