Delta Machine Tour is a finished worldwide concert tour by English electronic music band Depeche Mode in support of the group's 13th studio album, Delta Machine, released 22 March 2013. Following a warm-up show in Nice, France on 4 May 2013, the tour kicked off in Tel Aviv, Israel, and will continue through Europe until late July, culminating in Minsk - the group's first performance in Belarus. A North American tour will follow in late August, beginning in the Detroit suburb of Clarkston, Michigan and culminating in Austin, Texas in early October. The band will perform at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, which in 2013 will be held across two weekends for the first time. A second leg in Europe is planned for the winter, with dates still being confirmed. Among the dates announced are Dublin, Amsterdam, Oslo and Belfast, their first show in Northern Ireland in almost 30 years.

The 25 and 27 November 2013 nights in Berlin were filmed by Anton Corbijn for a future video release.[1]

The Delta Machine Tour is the 9th highest-grossing tour of 2013.[2]

Reviews[edit]

Reviews of the tour have been mixed. A review of the 7 May show in Tel Aviv was positive, citing an excited crowd and a strong performance from lead singer Dave Gahan "who held the crowd in sway the whole time with his deep baritone and slow-grind dance moves."[3] A review of the 9 July show in Switzerland was negative, saying "Depeche Mode fans deserve something better." The show was well-attended, but the performance itself was reviewed poorly due to "mundane" backing videos, a lack of stage props and reliance on Dave Gahan, who was described as "Freddie Mercury reincarnated as a seahorse." The review rates the show 2 stars out of 4 ("average").[4] A review of the 27 July show in Vilnius was especially positive, starting from the very title "Crowd of Many Thousands Raged at Depeche Mode's Concert" and emphasizing the crowd's excitement during "Enjoy The Silence", "Personal Jesus", "Just Can't Get Enough", "I Feel You" and "Never Let Me Down Again".[5]
