PLACEBO WIN BEST ALTERNATIVE ACT AT MTV EMAs

Placebo capped a brilliant 2009 last night in Berlin by scooping the award for Best Alternative Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards. The band beat off stiff competition from Paramore, The Prodigy, Muse and The Killers to pick up the prize which is just reward for their constant touring and brilliant new album “Battle For The Sun”.

Brian Molko said of the award: “What makes it so significant is that it’s been voted for by fans and MTV viewers and that’s why we’re so touched.”

As the end of the year closes in, the upcoming tour is the perfect chance to see the band do what they do best and show just why they are worthy winners of the award as they play dates in December, including the O2 in London, which is set to be the highlight of an already breathtaking live calendar.



The tour dates are:



Tuesday 8th - Birmingham LG Arena

Wednesday 9th - London The O2

Friday 11th - Bridlington Spa

Saturday 12th - Manchester Central

Monday 14th - Glasgow SECC

Tuesday 15th - Dublin Olympia Theatre

Wednesday 16th - Dublin Olympia Theatre
