Depeche Mode cancels shows after David Gahan rushed to hospital

Tbd-depechemode051409 Depeche Mode lead singer David Gahan was not well enough for Wednesday night's concert in Athens (Greece, not Georgia), a day after being rushed to the hospital, the AP says. What will the popes of mope do?

Neither concert organizers nor the hospital he was taken to Tuesday night would say from what condition the 47-year-old was suffering. The Tuesday concert was rescheduled for Wednesday, in case Gahan was well enough to sing tonight, but that's not the case.

Thursday's concert in Istanbul also has been canceled. Turkey's Anatolia news agency said Gahan would go to the United States for treatment and that concerts in Bucharest, Romania, on Saturday and Sofia, Bulgaria, next Monday might also be canceled.
