|Depeche Mode concert chronology|
The tour began with an eleven-week European leg, which kicked off in Lille, France in mid-May and culminated in London in late July. In September 1993, the group began a North American leg, which commenced in Quebec City, Canada. The 50-date tour continued until early December, when it wrapped up in Mexico City. Later in the month, the band returned to Europe for a short tour of the United Kingdom and Ireland. The five date jaunt began in Dublin and ended, once again, in London.
The concerts in Barcelona, Liévin and Frankfurt were filmed, with the compiled footage issued later that year on a video release entitled Devotional. The video was reissued on DVD in 2004. Additionally, a live album entitled Songs of Faith and Devotion Live was released in December 1993. The album was a track-by-track live duplicate of Songs of Faith and Devotion. The release featured recordings from the concert in Liévin, although two of the tracks were recorded in Copenhagen and New Orleans respectively.
The group continued to promote Songs of Faith and Devotion the following year on the Exotic Tour/Summer Tour '94, which included an additional North American leg. Q magazine refers to Devotional Tour as "the most debauched rock tour ever".
