It might be the event of this summer in Bucharest: Depeche Mode concert in Bucharest takes place on July 26 at National Arena – Arena Nationala.
This is the third time the band returns to Romania. The concert is part of the European Tour to promote DM’s latest album, Memento Mori, but the band will also play the songs that made it famous.
The Memento Mori tour will be Depeche Mode’s 19th and first in over five years. Memento Mori will be Depeche Mode’s 15th studio album and the follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed Spirit, which reached number 1 in 11 territories and top 5 in over 20 other countries. Memento Mori will be released as a world premiere in the spring of 2023 via Columbia Records.
The album and the Memento Mori tour represent the newest chapter of an enduring and unparalleled legacy, and fans from Romania are lucky to see the band playing live after so much time.
