Goth/alt-rock gender benders Placebo have announced an Australian leg of their massive 20th Anniversary world tour due to hit our shores in September and kicking off in our sleepy ol’ town on Monday, September 4 at Perth Arena.
They have spent the end of 2016 touring Europe, Russia and the UK. Having had the first half of 2017 off, they will be taking it up again in Australia, leaving the Americas asking when it is their turn.
If you plan on following this historic tour around the country, after the Perth date on Monday, September 4 they will be heading to Adelaide to play the Adelaide Entertainment Centre Theatre on Wednesday September 6, then to Melbourne to play at the Margaret Court Arena on Friday, September 8 then Sydney at the Qudos Bank Arena on Saturday September 9, then Brisbane at the Brisbane Convention Centre on Monday September 11, then the Newcastle Entertainment Centre, Newcastle on Tuesday, September 12, then Canberra at AIS Arena on Thursday, September 14. Phew!
Placebo rose to fame in 1998 with their breakout hit Pure Morning, the first single from their second studio album Without You I’m Nothing that reached platinum sales status in Australia and the UK.
