Placebo announced plans to celebrate their 20th anniversary with an extensive world tour in 2016 & 2017. The 20 Years of Placebo World Tour will celebrate the band's entire history and will include material the band has not played in years, including songs leader Brian Molko himself had previously said he'd never perform again. From Molko's official statement on the tour:

"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 first leg of the tour kicks off in the autumn and focuses on Europe & the U.K.  Don't count out a North American leg just yet -- they've only announced dates for the first leg so far and according to the band "further dates for 2017 will be revealed later" so keep your fingers crossed and stay tuned! Dates for the first leg of the tour are posted below.
