Depeche Mode still has a lucrative touring business — the Brit band launches its next world tour in May 2013 in conjunction with the release of its 13th album, and its last European tour drew 2.5 million. The moody group had been at CAA for years. Depeche Mode has sold more than 100 million records worldwide since it hit the scene in the early 1980s as part of the New Wave. WME will represent the band for North and South America. Depeche Mode continues to be managed by Jonathan Kessler.
