Hublot And Depeche Mode Raise $1.4 Million For charity: water

Hublot

Hublot and Depeche Mode hosted a gala and auction last night in the historic Tsum building in Moscow to benefit charity: water. In total, over $1.4 million was raised to bring clean water to people in developing countries.

Says Martin: “I am particularly pleased that, as a band and with the support of our loyal friend Hublot, we can organise this exceptional auction to raise money for our friends at charity: water and contribute to making a real difference in countries struggling to survive without access to drinking water. The money raised should help to make a real difference.”

Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot CEO, added: “This unique collaboration is part of our ongoing special relationship with Depeche Mode. We first met in 2010 and hit it off straight away. If our friendship can make a difference, then we must not hesitate since connection is all about sharing. If you don’t share, you miss out. Hublot is in a fortunate position, and has a duty to share some of its success with those who need it.”

Depeche Mode Regretfully Announce Kiev Cancellation

DMkiev copyDepeche Mode regretfully announce that due to the current civil unrest and instability in Kiev and the whole of Ukraine, the concert scheduled for Wednesday, February 26th at the International Exhibition Center in Kiev has been cancelled. The safety and security of the band, crew and fans is the highest priority, and at this time it is not possible to ensure a safe and enjoyable concert experience for everyone involved.

Ticket holders should seek refunds from the ticketing vendor or box office from which they purchased their tickets.

The band’s thoughts are with the Ukrainians during this challenging period and they sincerely look forward to the next time they can perform for the fans in Kiev and Ukraine.

Lille Cancellation

The Depeche Mode concert scheduled for Sunday, November 17th at 19:00 at Stade Pierre Mauroy is cancelled.

The permanent heating system for the stadium is not complete and the venue has been unable to remedy the situation with supplementary heaters. The venue is therefore unable to host the event at this time as the conditions would be unsafe for the audience, crew, staff and artist.

Refunds will be available from the point of purchase starting Tuesday, November 19th.

Depeche Mode, Live Nation and Interconcerts regret all inconvenience this has caused.

Le concert de Depeche Mode programmé pour le Dimanche 17 Novembre à 19.00 au Stade Pierre Mauroy est annulé.

Le Systeme de chauffage permanent de l’Arena n’est pas terminé et le complément mis en place par la salle s’est avéré insuffisant. La salle est donc dans l’incapacité de recevoir le show car les conditions ne sont réunis pour accueillir le public, les équipes techniques, le staff ainsi les artistes.

Les billets vous seront remboursés auprès de vos points de ventes habituels à partir du mardi 19 novembre prochain.

Depeche Mode, Live Nation et Interconcert regrettent tout désagrément que cela à causé.
