The originally announced Vancouver performance was unable to be rescheduled, tickets are available for refund at the point of purchase.

Placebo released their latest LP Never Let Me Go back in March. The record peaked at No. 3 on the UK Albums Chart and No. 1 on the UK Indie Chart. The album has been lauded by fans and critics alike.
Placebo formed in 1994, with the London-based pair of Brian Molko (vocals/guitar) and Stefan Olsdal (bass/guitar), releasing their eponymous debut just two years later. In the intervening years, Placebo have released eight studio albums that have sold over 13 million copies, filled stadiums from Moscow to Sydney, won numerous awards including a 1999 Brit Award, and pushed the boundaries of gender and sexuality.
