Gahan Undergoes Surgery To Remove Tumour

DEPECHE MODE frontman DAVE GAHAN has undergone an emergency operation to remove a cancerous tumour from his bladder.
The band's European tour was thrown into turmoil after Gahan was struck down with a severe bout of gastroenteritis hours before he was due onstage in Athens, Greece on 12 May (09).
The rockers subsequently scrapped nine shows to allow Gahan to recover from the illness.
But during his stint at a clinic, medics discovered a "low-grade malignant tumour", and Gahan underwent an emergency operation.
Now the band has vowed to be back onstage for their gig in Leipzig, Germany on 8 June (09).
A statement on the group's website reads, "Dave Gahan sincerely thanks his fans for their support, understanding and patience. Depeche Mode deeply regret any problems or inconveniences the cancellations and postponements may have caused."
