Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan Rushed To Hospital
"British music band Depeche Mode canceled an Athens concert Tuesday after lead singer Dave Gahan fell ill and was taken to a hospital in the Greek capital, event organizers said.
“We regret today’s performance has to be canceled ... David Gahan fell ill in his dressing room,” a concert organizer told an audience of about 20,000 waiting for the concert to start.
Depeche Mode is one of the longest-lived bands to have emerged from the early 1980s, with 45 songs in the British singles chart. The band plays post-punk, new wave music and has sold more than 75 million albums worldwide."
