Depeche Mode tour to hit Costa Rica

May 1, 2009

October may seem a long way off, but ´80s music lovers should mark the date: Depeche Mode, live in Costa Rica, Oct. 8.

The news came with a long list of dates on the U.K. band´s Web site (http://www.depechemode.com/tour.html), announcing their Tour of the Universe 2009.

Although they are icons of a two-decade-old sound, the synth-driven new wave genre, the authors of the hits “Just Can´t Get Enough,” “Personal Jesus” and “Enjoy the Silence” have an uncanny knack for avoiding the cut-out bin in music stores, proven once more by the launch last month of their new disc, Sounds of the Universe. The album is ruling the European charts at No. 1 and 2 across much of the Continent, according to Billboard magazine.

However, a Costa Rica promoter has yet to lay claim to the concert or announce a venue, troubling signs considering recent foul-ups like this past weekend´s surprise cancelation a concert by Ivory Coast´s reggae star Alpha Blondy and early April´s last-minute postponement of the performance by Mexican legend Vicente Fernández.

Assuming reliable promoters take charge of the Depeche Mode date, tickets will go on sale June 15, according to the Web site.
