Placebo praise fans for braving rain at Leeds Festival
Placebo thanked fans for braving the "shitty elements" at a rain-sodden Leeds Festival tonight (August 30).

Playing on the Main Stage, Brian Molko's band treated the crowd to a career-spanning set, which included a number of tracks from recent album 'Battle For The Sun'.

'The Never Ending Why' was introduced by Molko as being "a Buddhist song".

Fan favourites from earlier in the group's career - including 'Every You Every Me' and 'Special K' - were also blasted out during the gig, inspiring huge chants from a crowd undeterred by the torrential downpour.

The set finished with 'Taste In Men', after which the band joined hands and took a bow at the front of the stage.

Placebo played:

'Kitty Litter'
'Ashtray Heart'
'Battle For The Sun'
'For What It's Worth'
'Every You Every Me'
'The Never Ending Why'
'Breathe'
'Special K'
'Song To Say Goodbye'
'Infra-Red'
'The Bitter End'
'Taste In Men'
