Placebo to celebrate 20th anniversary of debut album with huge UK tour

Placebo will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their self-titled debut album with a huge UK and Ireland tour. 

The rockers will head out for a nine date tour across December and have promised a career-spanning setlist. 

Speaking about the tour, frontman Brian Molko said: "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."

He continued: "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."

Tickets for the tour will go onsale on Friday (March 18th) at 9am, click here for full details.
