Placebo announce 20 Years of Placebo UK and Irish tour dates.


20150226-dsc_1424Placebo will be taking to the road again, hitting the UK and Ireland in December as they will be performing a setlist of classics as well as forgotten treasures spanning the bands 20 year back catalogue. In a press statement, Brian Molko revealed:

“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.”
