The World Violation Tour was an international tour undertaken by Depeche Mode in support of their seventh studio album Violator.

As of September 2023, no film footage or audio from the World Violation tour has been released in an official capacity. Alan Wilder states in a Q&A on the official Recoil project website that, with the release of 1989's 101, the band felt it was too soon to produce a new live concert film.

Reportedly, one concert during Depeche Mode's three-night stint in Paris 1990 was recorded for a live album release, as several fans reported seeing mobile recording units outside the venue.
