Music for the Masses Tour was a 1987/1988 concert tour by English electronic group Depeche Mode in support of the band's sixth studio album, Music for the Masses, which was released in September 1987.[1] This was the second time the band traveled behind the Iron Curtain.

The tour began in October 1987 with a European leg, starting in Madrid and finishing mid-November in Paris. In early December, a North American run commenced in San Francisco and culminated three weeks later in New York City.

In January 1988, the group played an eleven-date U.K. tour, which was followed by further dates in Europe beginning in Hamburg, West Germany in early February. The leg wrapped up in Vienna in late March.

In April 1988, the group played four dates in Japan. This was followed later in the month by the start of a second North American leg, which began in Mountain View, California. The entire tour concluded mid-June with a concert at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

The Rose Bowl show was recorded and later released as a live album and video release entitled 101, issued in March 1989. The video included footage documenting the second North American leg of the tour and was re-released on DVD in 2003.
