One of the world’s most widely recognised alternative rock bands Placebo, have announced their first full national headline tour in 11 years, set to take Newcastle by storm on 12 September this year. The 20 Years of Placebo Australian Tour will celebrate the bands 20th Anniversary since the release of their platinum selling debut album Placebo.
With two decades of punky raw emotion, seven full-length albums and over 14 million records sold worldwide, Placebo will be playing a set list spanning their back catalogue of greatest hits, of which some songs have not been heard live for more than a decade. Having not played on Australian soil since Soundwave 2014 and subsequent sideshows (Sydney and Melbourne), the addition of Australian tour dates to the 20 Years of Placebo World Tour has been highly anticipated by Placebo fans around the country.
With their world tour already receiving rave reviews globally with Louder Than War saying “intense, relevant, pure alternative rock like no one else” and Buzz Magazine touting the tour as “nothing short of Spine Tingling”, Placebo will be giving their audiences a spine-chilling nostalgic tsunami of sound as they celebrate a 20 year journey of monumental achievements.
