Turks now lose out

Depeche Mode have been forced to pull a second date on their current tour due to Dave Gahan's dicky belly.

As previously reported on the Quietus, Mode were forced to cancel their May 12 gig in Athens after Gahan was taken to hospital.

Now a statement on Depeche Mode's website reads "Dave fell ill with a severe bout of gastroenteritis shortly before he was due onstage in Athens which resulted in his immediate hospitalization. At this stage, Dave's primary concern is to return to full health and resume the tour as soon as possible.

"Fans in Athens and Istanbul have been advised to hold onto their tickets as an announcement will be made shortly with regard to rescheduled dates or cancellation."
