Placebo's Fan Shower

Placebo showered their fans with balloons and glitter at London's O2 Academy Brixton on Monday (27.09.10).

The group performed the first of two shows at the venue in support of their reissued album 'Battle For The Sun' and delighted the packed-out crowd with a career-spanning set, which kicked off with their 1997 single 'Nancy Boy'.

Frontman Brian Molko kept audience interaction to a minimum, speaking rarely between songs, though he did dedicate their cover of Nirvana track 'All Apologies' to late photographer Corinne Day, who died last month aged 48.

After performing lively renditions of hits past and present, including 'Teenage Angst', 'Ashtray Heart', 'Meds' and 'The Bitter End', the group left the stage before returning for a four-song encore.

As smoke machines billowed from the stage, a net of balloons was released into the crowd, before glitter rained down during closing tracks 'Trigger Happy Hands', 'Post Blue', 'Infra-Red' and 'Taste In Men'.

Support for both Monday and last night's (28.09.10) performances came from Little Fish and Evaline.
