PLACEBO ANNOUNCED AS ITUNES FESTIVAL HEADLINE ACT ON JULY 14TH AS NEW ALBUM ‘BATTLE FOR THE SUN’ RIDES HIGH ACROSS THE WORLD

Placebo are pleased to announce that they will headline the iTunes Festival at The Roundhouse in London on July 14th. This follows the band’s recent worldwide chart-storming success of the release of their new and now critically acclaimed album ‘Battle for the Sun’. Placebo stormed the charts across Europe and worldwide, hitting No.8 in the UK and entering the charts at No.1 in nine countries, including a first ever No.1 in Germany. The band hit the top five in nineteen other countries and they have also had their first ever Billboard Top 100 placing in the US at No.51. Right across the board, ‘Battle for the Sun’ has bettered all previous chart positions in Placebo’s 13-year history.


This, along with 25 European festival appearances this summer (including a return to the main stage at the Reading/Leeds festivals) and a huge arena tour booked for later in the year, culminating in The O2 Arena in London in December, shows the band going from strength to strength. In short, 2009 is shaping up to be a very good year for Placebo!

The December dates are as follows:


Tuesday 08th Birmingham LG Arena

Wednesday 09th London The O2

Friday 11th Bridlington Spa

Saturday 12 Manchester Central

Monday 14th Glasgow SECC

Tuesday 15th Dublin Olympia Theatre

Wednesday 16th Dublin Olympia Theatre

“New album ‘Battle For The Sun’ is among some of Placebo’s finest work.” Kerrang!
