Placebo has just announced a world tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their self-titled debut album “Placebo”.
The band will be on tour for two months, starting in Aarhus, Denmark, on the 13th October and finishing in London at the Wembley SSE Arena on the 15th December. During this period, Placebo will be playing shows in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Latvia, Russia, Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Holland, UK and Ireland. Full dates and info are available here.
Brian Molko, lead singer of the band, says: “Let’s just say there will be songs in the set that I’ve sworn never to play again. I think it’s time that we purposefully acknowledged what a lot of Placebo fans really want to hear. They’ve been very patient with us since we rarely play our most commercially successful material. A 20 year anniversary tour seems like the right time to do so. That’s our intention. This tour is very much for the fans and a chance for us to revisit a lot of our early material. So, if you want to see us play songs like ‘Pure Morning’ and ‘Nancy Boy’ which we haven’t played in almost ten years and may not play again, then you’d better come along to these shows! We’ll have some surprises in there too.”
