Alternative rock veterans Placebo have announced what every die-hard Placebo fan has ever dreamed of.
The guys are heading out on a world tour to celebrate 20 years of Placebo, which will run from October 2016 to December 2016, and continuing on to 2017. Only the first batch of dates have been revealed, all residing in Europe – from Italy to Japan to their home in Belgium, etc. See below for the tour poster and full list of dates.
Lead singer Brian Molko posted a special message regarding the announcement to his precious fans on Facebook that same day, which read:
“…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….”
Again, this is definitely what every hardcore lover of Placebo only dreamed would come true. I know I did. Stay tuned for more updates to find out if they’ll be hitting your city!
