Depeche Mode Coming to Buenos Aires – Venue and Ticket Sale Date Confirmed

Depeche Mode in Buenos Aires 2009Good news for all Depeche Mode fans! The band is coming to Buenos Aires as part of their 2009 “Tour of the Universe.”

They will be playing Club Ciudad de Buenos Aires on Saturday, October 17, 2009. Ticket prices have not yet been set, but they will be available from Ticketek on Tuesday, May 19, 2009. We’ll update this post when we have more pricing details.

If you do not yet have an account with Ticketek, I’d recommend that you create one in advance of the on-sale date to make sure you don’t have any problems. You’ll need your passport number to register if you do not have a DNI or other form of local ID. Tickets will be available online as well as at Ticketek locations.

Depeche Mode’s next date after Buenos Aires isn’t until Thursday, October 22 in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, which leaves open the possibility of adding additional dates should this first one sell out.

Some other upcoming international acts playing in Buenos Aires include George Clinton (5/19 – 5/21), Jonas Brothers (5/21), The Kooks (6/16  & 6/17 – both sold out), Cat Power (7/16), Aimee Mann (8/13) and maybe even Whitesnake.

Some great web sites for finding out about upcoming shows include Ticketek, Entradas Q and Vammos. All the sites are in Spanish, but are easy to navigate and can be translated with Google Translate.

Rock on!


Argentina’s Travel Guide Web Site

Argentina’s Travel Guide is a site that I’ve had in my Google Reader for awhile now, but in recent weeks the site has really picked up the pace with a slew of interesting new stories and events happening in Buenos Aires (and beyond).  Here’s a quick description from their site:

Argentina’s Travel Guide is an online guidebook and trip planning site. We started the guidebook because how we, and other modern travelers, plan our trips is changing dramatically. Instead of a heavy guide book, travelers are carrying their super lightweight laptops, their iPods and cell phones across continents and oceans.

We are a small company focused on providing the best possible service to our clients. After you’ve researched your trip with the guidebook,  Argentina’s Travel Guide Tours provides top-flight excursions, activities and travel packages to ensure you enjoy the best experience in Argentina.

To help you plan your best trip to Argentina, we offer a complete online guidebook, a forum for your questions, a directory with local services and free downloadable pocket guides. The goal of Argentina’s Travel is to equip modern travelers with the most cutting edge travel tools from downloadable audio walking tours to advice on how to rent an apartment.

They really are much more than a travel guide though, so even if you’re not planning a trip, they’re worth checking out and I’d recommend adding their RSS feed to your list. (If you’re not using RSS yet, you should be! It’s the best way to keep up with all your favorite sites and Google Reader is very easy to use.)
