Depeche Mode cancel four more concerts

BUCHAREST : British band Depeche Mode announced Thursday it was cancelling four additional concerts in Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia and Croatia, amid fears over frontman David Gahan's health.

"Depeche Mode have been forced to cancel a further four shows on their Sounds of the Universe tour due to further complications from singer Dave Gahan's severe bout of gastroenteritis," the band announced on its website.

"Dave is currently undergoing further tests," it added.

The band had been due to perform in Bucharest, Sofia, Belgrade and Zagreb between May 16 and 21.

The concerts could still be rescheduled at a later date, it said.

Depeche Mode, one of Britain's most successful and longest-lived bands, already cancelled long-awaited gigs in Greece and Turkey this week after Gahan was rushed to hospital shortly before going on stage.
