    Placebo will mark the 20th anniversary of their debut album by embarking on an extensive world tour later this year. The first leg kicks off October 13th in Denmark and runs through mid-December. A second leg scheduled for 2017 will be announced shortly.

    In a statement, frontman Brian Molko previewed the tour, saying, “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.”
