Placebo have announced the first set of dates for their 20th anniversary tour. The band will travel across Europe through October, November and December, with nine UK shows among the already announced dates. The tour will kick off in Denmark on October 13th.

Brian Molko PlaceboPlacebo have announced a 20th anniversary world tour.

On their official website frontman BRIAN MOLKO promised that the show’s setlist will span their entire 20 year career. “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,” Molko said.

“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.”
