The only Placebo anniversary concert will take place this october in Riga

On the occasion of their debut platinum awarded album “Placebo”, one of the brightest British alternative rock bands Placebo are announcing a special tour “20 years of Placebo”. On October 22nd  they’re giving a show at Arena Riga, what will be the one and only gig in the Baltic States. 
 
To thank Placebo’s loyal fans, the concert’s playlists will be compiled of their most successful and popular material, which needless to say also will not let down anyone who has ever heard anything about Placebo.
 
“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.”, admits Brian Molko, the band’s frontman. 
 
Placebo was founded in 1994, when singer, composer and multi-instrumentalist Brian Molko met guitarist Stefan Olsdal.
 
In a amazingly creative way the band tangles the depressive maximalism, outsider’s pain and models of difficult (mostly unfortunate) relationship with melody and sensuality, making Placebo one of the brightest luminaries at the British alternative rock.
 
The band have released 7 studio albums, with a total 11 million copies, all of them reaching UK Top 20. 
Placebo contribution is assessed with the following awards: BRIT, MTV Europe, ECHO, Kerrang! etc.
 
Extremely rich Placebo hit accounts represent such compositions as Pure Morning, Nancy Boy, Special K, Bitter End, Every You Every Me, Twenty Years, Song To Say Goodbye, Special Needs, Meds, This Picture, Infra-Red, Black-Eyed, Ashtray Heart, Battle For The Sun, Bacause I Want You, Teenage Angst, Slave To The Wage, Sleeping With Ghosts and lots of other songs, which keeps the Placebo into the list of most successful masters of singles. 
 
For your attention! The ticket sales in the whole Europe start this Friday, March 18, 11AM. 
In Latvia tickets will be available in “Biļešu serviss” sales outlets and www.bilesuserviss.lv
