Placebo have had to postpone the first show of their arena tour in Lille this Friday night (29th September). Brian Molko came down with severe tonsillitis on Sunday night. He saw a specialist on Tuesday and was immediately admitted to hospital where he spent Tuesday and Wednesday night on an intravenous drip.

Brian was released from hospital this morning (Thursday) and is under doctors orders to rest for 48 hours. His doctor has ruled out a show on Friday night. Brian is now fighting to be fit for Saturday's show in Lille. At present, we very much hope this show will go ahead and, subject to doctors ok, this is our intention

Please check here for updates regarding any further necessary cancellations. Placebo very much regret having to cancel a show and are aware how disappointing this is for the fans who've bought tickets and have been waiting a long time to see the band. Brian is devastated at the timing of this illness and apologises to all the fans.

It's particularly disappointing as this was the very first show of the band's autumn European arena tour. We will however be re-scheduling the show and all tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled date. Please check here for details. For those that wish to have their tickets refunded, please contact their point of purchase. Thanks to all for your understanding..
