Placebo's Circus Show

Placebo want to have fire eaters and a circus troupe at their huge Christmas concert.

The 'Nancy Boy' rockers are playing London's huge O2 Arena in December and are promising fans a particularly "special" evening.

Frontman Brian Molko said: "Sometimes in my fantasy world, I'd like to bring fire-eaters and maybe a circus troupe, but that could detract from the music. Sometimes I'd like the band to be the Ike and Tina review, with dancers and music and maybe one day it'd be like that.

"Maybe at the O2, it would be a good opportunity to do that, bring a horn section or a string section in. We'd like to make the evening a special one, because it's a massive statement for us. Particularly as we don't get much support from the media, but our fanbase has been steadily growing. We want to reward the faithful."

The group admitted they have to work harder to please their fans when they return to London.

Brian added to XFM radio: "London has always been a very important place. We always want to shine here. Sometimes it's harder because your average music fan is exposed to more high quality music than, say, the Czech Republic."
