Depeche Mode concert chronology

The Construction Time Again Tour was a 1983–84 concert tour by English electronic group Depeche Mode in support of the act's third album, Construction Time Again, which was released in August 1983.[1]

The tour, which took place in Europe, began in September 1983 in Hitchin, United Kingdom. Following an initial leg of dates in the U.K. and Ireland, a second leg in December reached Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, the Netherlands and West Germany.

In March 1984, the group performed its first dates in Italy and Spain. The final date was a one-off show in June supporting Elton John in Ludwigshafen, West Germany, where "People Are People", the lead single from their next album, made its live debut on the special set. A tour in support of the act's subsequent studio release, Some Great Reward, followed in September.
