Another band making me feel old are Placebo, who have just released a slew of dates from October to December in celebration of the 20th anniversary of their self-titled debut album. Traipsing from Denmark to London, more dates for 2017 will be announced later.
Brian Molko had the following to say about their choice of setlist:
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.
The fan pre-sale will begin at 9am on Wednesday 16th March, with the general sale tickets going live at 9am on Friday 18th March.
