It's a bigger venue than they're used to playing, but then again, Placebo are celebrating a significant birthday this year.

The rock band are embarking on a 20th anniversary world tour in 2016, and plan a stop off at the 3Arena in December.

They'll play the arena on December 10th, with a setlist 'spanning their entire career.'

Frontman Brian Molko 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."

Tickets from €50.50 (additional charges may apply) and on general sale this Friday, March 18th at 9am - although a fan pre-sale begins at 9am on Wednesday 16th.
