Placebo announce UK tour for the Autumn

The dates are part of the band's 20th anniversary celebration.

Placebo have announced details of a long run of UK tour dates this coming Autumn.

The band will be only be playing one date this summer at Latitude Festival in July.

Recently, Placebo released a short film music video to accompany their cover of Talk Talk’s ‘Life’s What You Make It’. The track originally appeared on Placebo’s EP of the same name that was released last year.


Speaking to The Independent about the cover, singer Brian Molko said: “We covered Talk Talk’s ‘Life’s What You Make It’ because it is a song from the 80s that we still liked and we wondered if we could replicate Gwen Stefani’s global smash hit with her band’s cover of [Talk Talk’s] ‘It’s My Life’. That remains to be seen . . .”
