Placebo rocks in Lisbon

British rock band Placebo is coming back to Portugal to perform at Coliseu de Lisboa on October 7.

Placebo formed in London in 1994, currently consisting of Brian Molko, Stefan Olsdal and Steve Forrest.

The band has gained considerable international recognition, selling over one million albums in the UK and over ten million worldwide.Placebo are best known for hit songs such as Nancy Boy, Pure Morning, Every You Every Me, Infra-Red, a cover of Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill, and For What It’s Worth.

The band’s first album featured a raw sound and a fairly minimalistic instrumental line-up, but proceeding albums have had a slower, more melancholic tone, and they started experimenting with synthesizers and other, less traditional, forms of sound production.

Tickets cost 30 Euros and can be bought at
