Depeche Mode tour needs another sick day



Depeche Mode and Dave Gahan
Guess who is sick again? Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan, of course. Seriously, if he hasn't had his  insurance canceled by now, then THAT'S the real problem with health care today.

The band's Wednesday performance in Mountain View, Calif., was called off because doctors have ordered 48 hours of total vocal rest for the lead singer.

"San Francisco is one of the most important cities to the band and we are devastated that we have been forced to cancel this date," Gahan said on the band's official website. "We hope to be back soon to play for all of our fans in the area."

So you say you hold tickets to a future Depeche Mode show on their 2009 tour? Maybe even that tasty looking date on Sept. 4 at Tampa's Ford Amphitheatre? Good luck! (And keep your eyes open for more announcements closer to your scheduled show date.)
