Placebo 2022 Tour Announcement – US Tour Schedule
Placebo is heading on their first US tour in 8 years, and it’s essential to see the British alt-rock duo in 2022. They’ll kick off the trek on September 4th in Vancouver, BC, and visit eight cities before the final show on the 18th in Brooklyn, NY.
This Placebo tour supports the group’s eighth album, Never Let Me Go, marking their first new material in nearly a decade. It wasn’t just the fans who loved singles like “Beautiful James,” “Surrounded by Spies,” and “Happy Birthday in the Sky,” but the critics as well. NME called Never Let Me Go a “renaissance rock record with an experimental edge,” while Wall of Sound believes it’s an “early candidate for album of the year.” The decade-long hiatus did the duo all kinds of good, and you need to hear their new material on the 2022 Placebo tour.
Eight is seemingly the lucky number for this Placebo tour, with the trek being their first in 8 years and visiting the same number of cities. However, another digit takes center stage on this Placebo tour: two. This expedition marks their first time in years as a duo, with Brian Molko and Stefan Olsdal coming together after Steve Forrest left the group in 2015.
That being said, the two men have worked effortlessly together since they formed Placebo in 1994. After nearly three decades and 11 million albums sold, we know they’re going to put on quite the show for their comeback Placebo tour! They’ve made their mark on the Britpop scene through their androgynous look and emotional-filled lyrics, which helped to inspire iconic 2000s alt-rock bands like My Chemical Romance and Panic! At the Disco, and it’s perfectly fitting for the emo revival of 2022.
