The band postponed 12 concerts on its Tour of the Universe due to Gahan's illness and recovery, but the BBC said the musicians this week began performing again in Leipzig, Germany.
"Being back onstage is an incredible feeling and I'm looking forward to each and every show," the BBC quoted Gahan as saying during his first concert back.
