Born in 1995, SNEAKERS has grown to transcend the stereotype of a simple tribute band, becoming a serious presence on the Italian new wave music scene. True lovers of the ‘80s sound, the band has focused its passion to honor one of the most representative bands of all electric pop and new As a performing group, SNEAKERS is characterized not only by the high quality of their music, but also by the overall artistic design of their concerts.

Throughout the years, SNEAKERS has had several opportunities to meet their idols. In October 2004, SNEAKERS met Depeche Mode – who called SNEAKERS one of the best tribute bands they had seen.
In 2011, SNEAKERS opened for Andy Fletcher of Depeche Mode, on one of the most important dates of Fletcher’s Italian DJ-set tour.
2013 marks the live return of Depeche Mode, with a sensational new album – Delta Machine – and an accompanying live tour. SNEAKERS will celebrate with a tour of its own, bringing together music from three eras in Depeche Mode history – the beginning ‘80s era with Vince Clark (Just Can’t Get Enough); the long years with Alan Wilder (endless hits, including Black Celebration, Never Let Me Down Again, Personal Jesus, Enjoy the Silence, Walking in My Shoes, World In My Eyes, Halo); and the most recent, post-Wilder era (Home, It’s No Good, Free Love, Wrong).
