Not Just A 'Placebo' Effect


MADRID, Spain (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — British rockers Placebo have cancelled the final dates in their European tour due to illness.

The Teenage Angst stars have been on the road for the past year and cancelled their performance on the Spanish island of Majorca on Friday after frontman Brian Molko fell sick. Now the band has pulled this week's shows in Madrid and Lugo in Spain, and another in Portugal.

The band posted the following statement on their website: “It’s a horribly disappointing way to finish our Battle For The Sun tour campaign and we hate letting our fans down by cancelling shows. We always try to ensure we can deliver what we promise so we can only apologise that we can’t now come and play for you.”

Placebo is due to jet to South Korea on October 21st to kick off the next leg of their worldwide tour.

Details of the 37 year old's ailments have yet to be released, but according to the band's website, Molko has been "ordered by doctors to take complete rest." –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
