Like Madonna only a few months ago, British pop superstars Depeche Mode will launch a 34-show European tour next year in Israel.

At a press conference in Paris on Tuesday, the veteran synth-pop trio made good on a promise that singer Dave Gahan made at the group’s 2009 show at Ramat Gan Stadium to come back to the country, with the announcement of the tour with its debut at Tel Aviv’s Hayarkon Park on May 7.

“In 2009. we promised to 50,000 fans in Israel that we’d return soon, and we’re excited to announce that our upcoming world tour will debut at Park Hayarkon in Tel Aviv,” the band said in a statement released on Tuesday.
