Exciter Tour was a 2001 concert tour by the English electronic band Depeche Mode in support of the group's tenth studio album, Exciter, which was released in May 2001.[1]

The tour began with a North American leg; the group performed one rehearsal show and two "warm-up" concerts before the official tour began in Montreal, Canada, in mid-June. The leg continued until mid-August, concluding with two shows in Anaheim, California.

In late August 2001, the group began a European leg, which started in Tallinn and culminated in early November in Mannheim, Germany. This was the final show of the tour; a second European leg had been planned for the summer of 2002 but this never happened.[2] In total, the band played 84 concerts, performing to over 1.5 million people in 24 countries.[3]

The concerts in Paris were filmed and issued in May 2002 on a DVD release entitled One Night in Paris.
