Placebo Headline Cambodian Temple Gig

Rockers PLACEBO are to play a unique gig in a 12th century Cambodian temple to raise money for charity.
The Nancy Boy hitmakers will headline the MTV EXIT (End Exploitation and Trafficking) concert at Angkor Wat, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed building, on 7 December (08).
The show, which will also feature Grammy winning U.S. artist Duncan Sheik and Australian pop sensation Kate Miller-Heidke, is the brainchild of London-based charity MTV Europe Foundation and will be the first rock concert ever to be held at the temple.
MTV EXIT aims to raise funds and awareness of human trafficking and exploitation, and work towards ending the trade.
In a statement, the members of Placebo say, "We are incredibly proud to perform at this important concert. We hope that through our music and involvement in this event and the MTV EXIT campaign that millions of people learn about this tragic form of slavery."
