Deaf Havana is thrilled to return to Australia, saying today, ‘We are incredibly excited to announce that this September we will finally be coming back to tour Australia, in support of the incredible Placebo. Last time we were in Australia we had the most amazing time, so to be flying over to support Placebo is going to be something of a dream! We’ve left it a long time in returning so we cannot wait to get over there and play some shows for you.’
With seven full-length albums over two decades and more than 14 million records sold globally, Placebo will be playing a set list spanning their immense catalogue –many of these songs have not been heard live for more than a decade!
The addition of Australian tour dates to the 20 Years of Placebo World Tour has been highly anticipated by Placebo fans around the country. Placebo last toured Australia with Soundwave in 2014, including sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne.
Their world tour is receiving rave reviews globally with Louder Than War saying “intense, relevant, pure alternative rock like no one else” and Buzz Magazine touting the tour as “nothing short of Spine Tingling”.
“We’re happy to be coming back to Australia this September to deliver fans something extra special,” says Brian Molko. “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.”
Placebo remains one of the world’s biggest alternative rock bands of the last 20 years, having achieved gold and platinum albums in over 30 countries.
Known for their stirring live shows, Placebo has sold out arena tours and headlined festivals in more than 70 countries across their career, playing to one million people on their last album tour alone.
