Icons of one sort or another

50 Icons space is not nearly enough for all the fantastic (to borrow The Doctor's word) avatars (to borrow someone else's) my new fandom lets me find. Just look at this one, e.g.! Such a pity I only found out about the Permanent Account Auction when it was all over and done with...I could have had space for a hundred! There's nothing for it, though: the last of the Spikes will have to go, too.

And freakspawn: you have so got to come over next February (or me come over to the UK again)! Why? Because Depeche Mode will be playing Rotterdam! And you probably knew all this way before I did

07.02.06 Rotterdam - Ahoy
11.02.06 Manchester - MEN Arena
13.02.06 Dublin - The Point
15.02.06 Birmingham - NEC
16.02.06 London - Wembley Arena
17.02.06 London - Wembley Arena

ETA: ^some people's idea of a joke.

Aaarrrgh -- why haven't I learned yet not to believe anything I read on the web? I'm sorry, Lare -- it would appear that the information I previously and unquestioningly copied and put up, is erroneous.

According to the official website for the Palais Omnisport De Bercy in Paris, France (aka Pop De Bercy), Depeche Mode are scheduled to play a show there on February 21st, 2006. This is the first venue to officially announce a date as of yet. Tickets for the show are not yet available.

The appearance of this date on Bercy.fr comes almost 2 weeks before the tour is expected to be announced, at a press conference in Düsseldorf, Germany on June 16th.

Considering all the rumours currently circulating, this Paris info must be regarded as the only thing somewhat trustworthy at this time.

The Bercy has been a regular stop for Depeche Mode since the mid-80s, and the band's most recent live release, "One Night In Paris" (2002), was filmed there during the band's 2001 "Exciter Tour". The venue holds upwards of 17.000 people.

So far, the only tour dates that are confirmed on the official DM website are:

Tourdates will be announced on June 16th, 2005.

31/01/2006 Düsseldorf (Germany) LTU Arena
21/02/2006 Paris (France) POP De Bercy
0?/06/2006 Nurburg (Germany) Rock am Ring Festival
0?/06/2006 Nuremburg (Germany) Rock im Park Festival
