Twenty years of Placebo

The ‘Nancy Boy’ hitmakers will celebrate two decades as a band by playing an extensive 37 shows around the globe, which will mark the 20th anniversary of their platinum-selling debut self-titled LP, which was released in 1996.

Frontman Brian Molko, 43, has teased that the set will include tracks that he “sworn” he wouldn’t perform again and the aim is to play their most commercially successful hits that the alternative duo – which also includes Stefan Olsdal – haven’t played in a long time and which they may never play live again.

To celebrate, the band have just released a new retrospective album, A Place For Us to Dream. The collection is set to include early singles such as ‘Come Home’ and ‘Teenage Angst’ to career-defining moments such as ‘Nancy Boy,’ ‘Pure Morning’ and ‘The Bitter End.’ It also includes a brand new single – ‘Jesus’ Son’ – and a special book that contains never-before-seen photos from the past 20 years, hand selected by Brian Molko and Stefan Olsdal from their own personal archives.
