Placebo Announce Australian Tour

One of the world's biggest alternative bands, Placebo, make a welcome return to our shores when they bring their ‘20 Years Of Placebo Australian Tour’ tour to Australia this September.

This will be the band's first tour since Soundwave in 2014.

“We’re happy to be coming back to Australia this September to deliver fans something extra special,” says Brian Molko.

“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 mate- rial.

"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."
