Istanbul Postponement

We regret to inform ticket holders for tonight’s show in Istanbul at KüçükÇiftlik Park that, due to circumstances beyond the control of Depeche Mode and Purple Concerts, tonight’s show will not be taking place. The Bulgarian trucking blockade at the Bulgaria-Turkey border has prevented Depeche Mode’s production trucks from crossing the border into Turkey, forcing this situation.

Depeche Mode and Purple Concerts are currently working to reschedule tonight’s show to later a later date in the Depeche Mode tour. Fans are kindly asked to hold on to their tickets and await further details from the band and Purple Concerts on this postponement.

Depeche Mode and Purple Concerts sincerely apologize to all of the fans and all ticket holders for this inconvenience.

Cuma akşamı gerçekleşmesi planlanan İstanbul konserinin, Depeche Mode ve Purple Concerts’in kontrolü dışında gelişen, Bulgaristan sınır kapısındaki grev ve yaşanan üzücü olaylar nedeniyle gerçekleşemeyeceğini tüm müziksever ve bilet sahiplerine bildirmekten dolayı üzüntülerimizi bildirmek isteriz.

Bulgaristan tarafında gerçekleştirilen yol kapama eylemi, Depeche Mode prodüksiyon tırlarının Türkiye’ye geçişine izin vermemiş ve konserin gerçekleşememesine yol açmıştır.

Depeche Mode ve Purple Concerts yetkilileri şu an, konseri ileri bir tarihe yeniden programlamak için çalışmaktadır.

Bilet almış tüm müzikseverlerden biletlerini saklamalarını, Depeche Mode ve Purple Concerts tarafından yapılacak açıklamaları takip etmelerini, bir sonraki konser tarihinin açıklanmasını beklemelerini rica ederiz.

DM x Hublot x charity: water

DM x Hublot x charity: water

Berlin, 18 March 2013 – In a special event held today in Berlin, Hublot and Depeche Mode announced a special charity partnership to benefit charity: water, a non-profit bringing safe drinking water to the developing world. Depeche Mode and Hublot have a history of joining forces to support charities. In 2010, Hublot and Depeche Mode raised funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust with a benefit show at London’s Royal Albert Hall and a unique auction: an auction of 12 exclusive boxed sets, each containing a Hublot watch, a ‘pièce unique’ with the cover of one of Depeche Mode’s 12 studio albums on its dial, along with the vinyl and digital version of each album, a golden framed CD and autographed stills. This year, Hublot and Depeche Mode agreed to work together on a larger scale, to benefit charity: water, an organization strongly supported by the band.

charity: water’s founding purpose is to bring safe drinking water to people in developing countries around the world. Nearly 800 million people (nearly 1 out of every 9 people worldwide) lack access to safe drinking water – an epidemic-level problem charity: water is committed to solving. To date, they have funded over 8,100 water projects, providing access to clean, safe drinking water to more than 3.2 million people in 20 countries. And through the partnership announced today, Hublot and Depeche Mode have expressed their shared commitment to make charity: water’s global impact even greater.

The announcement was made today by Depeche Mode, Hublot Chairman Jean-Claude Biver and Scott Harrison, founder and CEO of charity: water.

Asked about the partnership, Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore stated, “I have personally been a supporter and advocate of charity: water for a while now, so I’m thrilled that we as a band can expand our support for the organization and help to make significant difference in places around the world struggling without a proper supply of drinking water.” 

This unique collaborative effort aims to break the record set in 2010. For this reason, Hublot designed not just 12 watches, but an exclusive series of 250 timepieces: the Limited Edition of Big Bang Depeche Mode.

Stay tuned for more information about the partnership…
