Depeche Mode keyboardist Andy Fletcher has arrived in Israel for the first time, and will headline a DJing set at Tel Aviv's Theatre club Friday night.

Last year, Depeche Mode were scheduled to play a much anticipated concert in Tel Aviv, but cancelled at the last minute following the onset of the Second Lebanon War.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Fletcher's visit would also be cancelled, but a retraction was soon published, and the keyboardist will appear as scheduled.

On Thursday, Fletcher spoke to reporters.
