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.
The tour, which took place in Europe, began in September 1983 in Hitchin, England. 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.
