Placebo To Stream Rare Festival Performances For Virtual “Summer Tour”
Placebo will be releasing eight career-spanning live sets as part of their new Lost Tapes – Summer Festival Lockdown Series.
The band are set to broadcast these shows throughout August and September on YouTube, opening up their vaults to show fans old performances from as far back as 1996 (and then right up until 2015).
“We were very disappointed that we couldn’t play live for you this summer, but even so we wanted to go on tour,” they say. “To replace us playing in person, we dug out some videos from the archives and are hosting our own ‘summer tour’.
