Bigflo & Oli’s two concerts at the Stadium in May 2019 did not change anything: the stars resolutely choose the Gironde enclosure for their mega tours.
Recent and perfectly designed to accommodate the most demanding groups, the Bordeaux stadium has programmed “mastodons” such as Ed Sheeran (in May 2019) or Indochine (in June 2022) in recent years. Muse applies there on June 23, 2023 and the 47,000 tickets were delivered in 15 days. Same success for Mylène Farmer, who is almost sold out for July 14, 2023 and recently announced a second evening, July 15. Last shock news: the arrival of Depeche Mode on May 31, 2023 for the first of its 4 French concerts (the others will take place in Lille, Lyon and Paris).
The English group, which has not played in Toulouse, at the Zénith, since February 2006 obviously loves Bordeaux – and its wines? – since he had filled the Arena in January 2018.
Dave Gahan and Martin Gore have revealed in a statement that their 19th tour will begin with a “special and limited” series of dates in the United States from March 23, before they come to Europe. A new album, “Memento Mori”, the first after the death of the 3rd man of Depeche Mode, Andrew Fletcher, last May, will be released upstream, in the spring of 2023, on Sony Music.
About this 15th studio disc, Martin Gore said: “We started working on this project at the beginning of the pandemic, and its themes were directly inspired by this period. After Fletch passed away, we decided to continue because we’re sure that’s what he would have wanted, it really gave the album extra meaning.” Dave Gahan added, “Fletch would have loved this album. We really can’t wait to share it with you soon, and we can’t wait to present you live on our next tour.”
