Placebo Live at The Olympia

Placebo have confirmed a concert at The Olympia Theatre, Dublin on 15th December, 2009.

The boys release their new album Battle For The Sun on June 12th which was produced in Toronto by David Bottrill and mixed in Londoin by Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails).

Brian Molko says the album is ‘not hard rock and it’s not pop, it’s probably hard pop. I think we’ve made a record which is almost the flipside of ‘Meds’. We’ve made a record about choosing life, about choosing to live, about stepping out of the darkness and into the light. Not necessarily turning your back on the darkness because it’s there, it’s essential; it’s a part of who you are, but more about the choice of standing in the sunlight instead.’

Tickets priced from 44.20 including booking fee are on sale now from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.

  • Been years since they did their own show in Ireland. Alot of their fans have moved on though since their last few terrible releases and new line up. Their debut was an absolute corker.
