Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan is hurt ... again



Dave_gahan Guess which '80s band just canceled their last two European dates due to injury? Depeche Mode fans, you better have your hands high in air -- per usual.

Singer Dave Gahan, who was sidelined earlier in the tour with a bladder tumor, now has torn a calf muscle. Doctors have told him to stay off his leg and rest, according to

At this point, we should mention that Gahan is 47 years old, not 67 years old, and is a singer, not a pole vaulter. So this is another mind-boggling injury.

Depeche Mode's North American tour is set to start July 24 in Toronto and includes a Sept. 4 date at Tampa's Ford Amphitheatre. If you're planning on attending, make sure to bring a wheelchair for Dave ... just in case.
