Depeche Mode's Friday Concert at AAA Will Go On as Planned

As the storm clouds of Hurricane Irma have receded, so have the clouds of mystery surrounding the status of Depeche Mode's Miami performance. The show will go on.

The seminal dark synthpop band announced on Twitter that it will play as planned this Friday, September 15, at American Airlines Arena as part of its Global Spirit World Tour. The September 13 show in Tampa was canceled due to the storm.

Irma left the American Airlines Arena with minor damage. The outer membrane of the practice court along Biscayne Bay was blown off; however, the damage wasn't structural, and the court is separate from the main facility.

Depeche Mode is on tour in support of its 14th album, Spirit, and remains an icon of the '80s postpunk and New Wave scene. Its creative peak began in the mid-'80s with its fifth album, Black Celebration, and continued with Music for the Masses, Violator, and Songs of Faith and Devotion.

Depeche Mode. With Warpaint. 7:30 p.m. Friday, September 15, at the American Airlines Arena, 601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305-777-1000; aaarena.com.
