Ireland and France, their only appearances before summer festival season...

PLACEBO have confirmed three dates, likely to be their only appearances before the summer festival season is upon us.

The gigs are at Belfast Ulster Hall (February 12), Dublin SFX (13) and Paris Zenith (18).

The band have just returned from America where they have been building up a base of fans and getting extensive radio play.

Their new single ‘Every You Every Me’ is out on January 25.
