Brian Molko and the boys will play Dublin in December...

PLACEBO have announced details of a one-off Irish show in DUBLIN as part of their ever expanding world tour.

The three-piece are confirmed to play at the Dublin Olympia on December 3. Tickets for the gig are on sale now, priced IR#22.50. The band last performed two shows at the city’s SFX venue just over two years ago.

The show will come following a major tour of Europe, supported by Idlewild, to promote their album ‘Black Market Music’ – released today (October 9) through Hut.

Following the Irish date, the band will fly out to Australia and New Zealand in the new year for more live shows.
