Depeche Mode have been forced to cancel another concert to allow singer Dave Gahan to fully recover from a severe bout of gastroenteritis.
The trio scrapped a gig in Athens, Greece on Tuesday (12May09) after the frontman was taken ill just before showtime, and now their concert in Istanbul, Turkey on Thursday night (14May09) has been called off.
The band's 16 May (09) gig in Bucharest, Romania is still on schedule.
A band statement reads, "Dave fell ill with a severe bout of gastroenteritis shortly before he was due onstage in Athens, which resulted in his immediate hospitalisation. At this stage, Daves primary concern is to return to full health and resume the tour as soon as possible."
