Placebo: in Italia


Un anno fa un sito dedicato, un countdown e le prime date. Più o meno a sorpresa i Placebo annunciavano un tour mondiale a celebrare i 20 anni di carriera (nel giugno del 1996 usciva infatti il primo album omonimo). Poi ad agosto l’inedito ‘Jesus’ Son‘ contenuto nella raccolta ‘A Place For Us To Dream’ (pubblicata ad ottobre) e un mese dopo la data milanese al Forum. E ancora un ritorno in Italia. Le celebrazioni continuano.

21 giugno @ Teatro Antico/Taormina

23 giugno @ Firenze Rocks/Firenze

16 luglio @ Collision Festival/Barolo-CN

“…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….”
