London rockers Placebo were originally scheduled to perform at Dublin's 3Arena on December 5th, 2022.
Placebo have announced their rescheduled UK and Ireland tour dates for summer 2023, with Dublin's 3Arena jaunt taking place on June 26th.
The duo, featuring founding members Brian Molko and Stefan Olsdal, were forced to postpone their remaining tour dates in December after frontman Molko lost his voice.
The band had initially postponed a single show in Newcastle on December 2, sharing that Molko had ignored his doctor’s advice to “go home and shut up for a week” and that he risked permanently damaging his voice if the tour continued.
Placebo then postponed their Glasgow show for the next day, sharing that they were “beyond devastated” but hoped to continue the tour in Dublin on December 5.
Unfortunately, the group - which formed in 1994 - decided to cancel the remainder of the tour “with a very heavy heart, great sadness and regret”. This meant further dates in Cambridge (December 7) and Birmingham (December 8) would not go ahead.
ll dates have now been rescheduled with original 2022 tickets remaining valid. The band's eighth album Never Let Me Go was released in March 2022.
“Thanks very much for your patience. We are pleased to announce the new dates,” Placebo shared on Twitter. Find the new dates below and purchase your tickets here.
7 – Newcastle, O2 City Hall
12 – Birmingham, O2 Academy
15 – Cambridge, Corn Exchange
24 – Glasgow, O2 Academy
26 – Dublin, 3Arena
Placebo also recently announced their rescheduled North American tour for 2023 after last year sharing that they were “devastated” to shelve their first tour dates in the US, Canada and Mexico in nearly a decade after “issues beyond our control”.
The pair will kick off the tour in Mexico City, Mexico on April 17 before wrapping it at The Fillmore in Denver, Colorado, US on May 20.
Back in 2022, Placebo requested that their fans did not film or take photos during the band’s live shows.
“Dear Placebo fans, we would like to kindly ask you NOT to spend the concert filming or taking photos with your mobile phones,” the statement began.
“It makes Placebo’s performance so much more difficult. More difficult to connect with you and to communicate effectively the emotions of the songs. It is also disrespectful to your fellow concert-goers who want to watch the show, not the back of your phone.”
