Placebo to perform at Cambodian temple

Band to play South-East Asian charity gig

Placebo are set to play a gig at an ancient temple called Ankgor Wat in Cambodia on December 7.

The band will perform at the MTV Exit concert, which is aiming to raise awareness and increase prevention of human trafficking.

It will be the first ever rock gig at the historic site.

Duncan Sheik, who got eight Tony Awards and a Grammy for his Broadway musical ‘Spring Awakening’, and Australian singer Kate Miller-Heidke will also play at the bash, as well as The Click Five and Cambodian artists.

“We are incredibly proud to perform at this important concert,” said Placebo in a statement. “We hope that through our music and involvement in this event and the MTV Exit campaign that millions of people learn about this tragic form of slavery.”
