20 Years Of Placebo - Cancelled

at Oasis Leisure Centre

T: 01793 507110

Price: £41.25


This show has been cancelled with a statement on the band's website reading:

"It is with great regret that Placebo are unable to play the upcoming shows at Portsmouth Guildhall on 16th October and Swindon Oasis on 17th October this coming week.

Brian Molko has been suffering from throat problems which has badly affected his voice. The band were reluctant to cancel dates and let the fans down and pressed ahead with the shows in Reading and Cardiff over the weekend but it was clear that Brian was struggling to sing. Brian will now see a specialist in London asap and following that diagnosis, we will make further announcements regarding the shows.

In the meantime fans are asked to hold onto their tickets and await further information via the agents you bought tickets from or on Placebo and Gigsandtours social media/online.

Placebo would like to apologise to the fans for this disappointment and hope for better news soon."


Formed by the iconic Brian Molko in 1994, Placebo's angsty anthems have taken them from cult band to worldwide success, achieving over 12 million sales, with hits including 'Nancy Boy' and 'Pure Morning'. The band's brand of dark emotional rock has seen them attain a similar loyal fanbase to that of The Cure.

Placebo have now survived nearly 20 years of love, hate, blood, sweat, tears, break ups and harmony all the whilst toting up over 1 million album sales in the UK, and over 12 million albums sold worldwide, and are still going strong.
