The legendary Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Depeche Mode, are back and going on tour with Hublot as their official charity partner. For the first time in five years, the band returns not only to greet their fans, but also to raise funds and awareness for The Conservation Collective. A global environmental charity, as well as supporting sustainability efforts around the global tour. The Memento Mori World Tour begins in Sacramento,California, on March 23 for a limited run of shows across North America before continuing in European stadiums in the summer and returning to North America in the fall.
Since the first partnership in 2010, Hublot and Depeche Mode have collaborated a number of times to support causes that both care deeply about. They have a common ground in the philosophy of “be first, be different and be unique”. Those guiding principles have shaped the British band since it was founded in London in 1980. Hublot is defined by challenging watch design icons such as the Big Bang and Classic Fusion lines. For the past 13 years, there has always been a natural partnership.

Ricardo Guadalupe, the CEO of Hublot, expressed his feelings by saying, “We were so excited to hear that Depeche Mode are going back on tour after all this time! And we knew immediately that we had to collaborate again. Hublot has always been first, different, and unique, and there’s no sound that captures that philosophy better than the music of Depeche Mode. “We’re also delighted to join with the band to support the work of The Conservation Collective and to know that funds raised by this tour will go to grassroots organizations bringing real change to our environment.”
In past partnerships, they have supported The Teenage Cancer Trust and charity: water, which has raised funds, awareness for childhood cancer research and brought clean water to developing communities around the world. With this new partnership, the shared goal becomes making tangible change toward sustainability, waste reduction, and environmental clean-up. For this reason, Hublot and Depeche Mode are proud that they will support and raise funds for The Conservation Collective.
Not only Guadalupe, but Dave Gahan and Martin Gore from Depeche Mode were also delighted by it, “A sincere thanks to our long-time collaborator Hublot, and to Ricardo and all our friends at Hublot for sponsoring the Memento Mori World Tour’s charitable efforts and joining us in our support of The Conservation Collective. “This is a big moment for the band going back on tour for the first time in five years, and it’s incredibly meaningful to have such a great partner once again by our side,” they said.
In conjunction with Live Nation’s Green Nation team, Depeche Mode and Hublot will also support programs on tour and at the venues focusing on limiting the use of single-use plastics, improving recycling, reducing food and other waste, and other sustainability-related initiatives. Depeche Mode and Hublot are proud to support The Conservation Collective’s initiatives to protect the environment, restore nature, and safeguard against climate change. Influence the world with their “locally-led, globally impactful” strategy. Hublot loves Depeche Mode!
