Depeche Mode to Play Ascend Amphitheater Sept. 18

DepecheMode-620

Tears for Fears aren’t the only English, ’80s, synthpop and new wave pioneers to announce a decades-overdue return to Nashville this year- fellow famed rockers Depeche Mode, whose one and only other Music City show took place at Starwood Amphitheatre in 1988, finally return to town at the tail end of summer, to headline Ascend Amphitheater on Sept. 18. Achieving massive fame in the mid ’80s, which has continued on ever since, making them one of the most commercially successful rock bands in history, the group helped popularize and influence synth-heavy, electronic rock and the new wave boom, which, in turn, inspired techno, electronica, and industrial rock in the ’90s.

Unlike many of their peers, Depeche Mode have never stopped releasing new music at a pretty regular clip, and their latest and 14th album Spirit is due out March 17. You can watch the official video for single “Where’s the Revolution,” which they also recently played live on The Tonight Show, below, and you can grab tickets to Depeche Mode’s first Nashville show in almost 30 years beginning Friday, March 10 at 10 a.m. CST right here, or register for the band’s official pre-sale here.
