The first leg of 20 Years of Placebo kicks off in Denmark and will hit Dublin's 3Arena on December 10.

Fans can expect a set list spanning their entire back catalogue.

Brian Malko said, "Let's just say there will be songs in the set that I've sworn never to play again. I think it's time that we purposefully acknowledged what a lot of Placebo fans really want to hear.

"They've been very patient with us since we rarely play our most commercially successful material.  A 20 year anniversary tour seems like the right time to do so. That's our intention. This tour is very much for the fans and a chance for us to revisit a lot of our early material.

"So, if you want to see us play songs like 'Pure Morning’ and 'Nancy Boy’ which we haven't played in almost ten years and may not play again, then you'd better come along to these shows! We'll have some surprises in there too."

The band is partnering with Ticketmaster to allow fans a special 48 hour pre-sale beginning at 9am on Wednesday March 16 with the general sale going live 9am on Friday March 18. Tickets from €50.50.
