heroes Placebo have announced details of an extensive 20th anniversary world tour featuring a date at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro.

Beginning in October and concluding with a a huge show at London’s Wembley Arena in December, the special tour is their biggest in recent memory and set to see them cherry pick the best songs from their vast back catalogue.

Speaking in reference to their plans for the tour, frontman Brian Molko has stated that “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.” 

Tickets for all dates are available from Friday 18th March at 9am.
