Placebo Celebrate 20th Anniversary With World Tour

Once Tour With Feeling…
Placebo 2015

Placebo are heading out on tour to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of their debut.

Good news, everyone! Placebo have just announced some very special plans for 2016. To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of their platinum-selling self-titled debut, they’re going to be embarking upon a huge world tour, which will hit arenas up and down the UK in December.

Speaking about the tour, Brian Molko 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.
