BACK on form and fighting fit after his cancer scare last year, Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan will lead the band in one of its rescheduled dates at the O2 tomorrow (Saturday).

Dave suffered a severe bout of gastroenteritis last year, leading to his hospitalisation and the cancellation of the band's upcoming Athens concert.

While in hospital, further medical tests revealed a lowgrade malignant tumour in Dave's bladder which was successfully removed but doctors ordered the singer to lay up until he was fully recovered so a series of dates in Depeche Mode's Tour of the Universe had to be postponed, including dates at the O2.

Now Dave, along with Martin Gore and Andy Fletcher, will play at the former Millennium Dome on Saturday in a show that will see the band perform songs from their current album Sounds of the Universe which includes the single Wrong.

And fans can look out for classics including Just Can't Get Enough, Personal Jesus, The Meaning of Love and New Life.

Doors open at 6.30pm and tickets cost £40-£51 from www.theo2.co.uk or 0844 856 0202.
