Placebo are very sorry to announce that they will be unable to play their shows at Plymouth Pavillions on Friday 20th October and Wolverhampton Civic Hall on Saturday 21st October.
Brian Molko saw a specialist ENT doctor who has confirmed that Brian is suffering from a throat problem which is affecting his vocal chords and he needs treatment and complete rest for the next few days.
Brian says “The band and I are absolutely devastated and very sorry for the disappointment and great inconvenience caused by this unfortunate situation. We really wanted to end our UK tour on a high to give thanks to our fans for your incredible support over the years.
It’s very painful being unable to play so many shows and we are so sad to have let you all down."
The band have confirmed that with rest and the appropriate treatment they are still hoping to perform the shows at Brixton Academy on Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th October.
We would ask all ticketholders to hold onto their tickets whilst we look into the possibility of rescheduling these dates. Alternatively fans will be able to get a full refund from point of purchase. Refunds will be available from 10am Monday 23rd October.
A further announcement relating to potential rescheduling will be made shortly.
It is with great regret that Placebo are unable to play the upcoming shows at Portsmouth Guildhall on 16th October and Swindon Oasis on 17th October this coming week.
Brian Molko has been suffering from throat problems which has badly affected his voice. The band were reluctant to cancel dates and let the fans down and pressed ahead with the shows in Reading and Cardiff over the weekend but it was clear that Brian was struggling to sing. Brian will now see a specialist in London asap and following that diagnosis, we will make further announcements regarding the shows. In the meantime fans are asked to hold onto their tickets and await further information via the agents you bought tickets from or on Placebo and Gigsandtours social media/online.
Placebo would like to apologise to the fans for this disappointment and hope for better news soon.
THANX MANCHESTER!!!BEAUTIFUL VENUE IT WAS... AMAZING CROWD YOU WERE!
