Depeche Mode canceled its scheduled Thursday May 11th, 2006 concert in Chicago because lead singer Dave Gahan is suffering from laryngitis
Fans were left disappointed as music act Depeche Mode canceled its concert, scheduled to be held Thursday May 11th, 2006 in Chicago, because lead singer Dave Gahan is suffering from laryngitis. The band's publicist, Mitch Schneider, said "a doctor who examined Gahan on Thursday morning told him to rest his voice".
In a news released on the same day, Schneider said that, after three shows in Mexico, Gahan's voice was "challenged" at the Kansas City concert because of cold temperatures at the outdoor venue. And by now on, the band's management is looking into scheduling another concert in Chicago.
