It all began in 1996 when the band released their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, which helped pave the way for a strong shift in British music, acting as an antithesis to Britpop and inspiring a generation of bands to follow them.

To date Placebo have sold over 12 million records worldwide, had 6 top ten albums in the UK and collaborated with iconic artists including David Bowie, Robert Smith, Frank Black, Alison Mosshart and Michael Stipe. Since then the band have won countless international awards including an MTV Award for Best Alternative Band in 2009.

Placebo remain one of the world’s biggest alternative rock bands of the last 20 years having achieved gold and platinum albums in over 30 countries.

Known for their incendiary live shows Placebo have sold out arena tours and headlined festivals in over 70 countries on 6 continents during their career, playing to over 1 million people on their last album tour alone.
