Reading & Leeds 28-30 August 2009  


Debuting their new single on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show in March, Placebo unveiled their new heavier sound. After a few intimate shows in the UK, they've now embarked on a world tour that include dates in this country's big arenas; emphasising their status as one of the biggest acts in rock. Know for androgyny and sexually confrontational lyrics, Placebo also inject dark filmic influences through their performances, citing David Lynch as an influence. How will Reading and Leeds crowds react to new songs like Kitty Litter alongside classics such as Every Me Every You?
