They will play Paris, Dortmund, Antwerpen, Gothenburg, Stockholm, Malmö, Berlin, Bratislava and Budapest.
A special EP is being recorded as we speak, to be sold exclusively at the concerts. There will also be surprises on stage.
Depeche Mode’s Andy Fletcher has revealed how psyched he is about jetting off for forthcoming DJ tour, which starts later this month.

He will play a lot of new remixes, presumably from the new upcoming remix CD. On the Depeche Mode website, he said: “I am really excited to be coming to a lot of the places that Depeche didn’t get to visit on the last tour.”
