Following news of their long-awaited 8th studio album Never Let Me Go, Placebo have today announced a major headline UK tour for November and December 2022 including two nights at London’s O2 Academy Brixton. Tickets go on sale at 9am Wednesday 17 November via www.gigsandtours.com, www.ticketmaster.co.uk and www.placeboworld.co.uk/tour.
Nine years on from the release of their last outing Loud Like Love, Never Let Me Go takes Placebo to a thrilling new breadth of sound and style. In September, Brian Molko and Stefan Olsdal resurfaced from a long hibernation to release their first single in five years – and first from the new album - ‘Beautiful James’. The band recently revealed a brand-new track from the album, ‘Surrounded By Spies’. Listen BELOW:
As great masters in cataloguing the human condition, Placebo’s unique way of examining both its flaws and beauty finds fertile ground in 2021. Crawling out of the pandemic into a landscape of intolerance, division, tech-saturation and imminent eco-catastrophe, theirs is a voice that has rarely felt more significant to contemporary discourse, and more appropriate to sing these stories to the world.
After more than a quarter-century together and an unmistakable back catalogue, Placebo are on fire once again. Never Let Me Go is released on 25th March 2022 and precedes major festival appearances across Europe before a headline UK tour in November and December.
