Placebo Announce First Ever Live Album

Placebo have announced the ‘Placebo Live‘ box set, an extensive collection of career-spanning performances captured in Mexico, Spain and London. Remarkably, more than twenty-five years in their career, the set includes the first live album that band have ever released – Collapse Into Never: Placebo Live In Europe 2023.

Placebo Live also marks the first time that any live performances from the band have been made available on vinyl. Across the whole collection, vinyl, Blu-Ray and CD formats are catered to from three special live sets titled Collapse Into Never, This Is What You Wanted and Live From The White Room. Each was recorded in the last year and a half as the band toured the world in support of new album Never Let Me Go, playing to over 1.5 million fans in the process.

Collapse Into Never, recorded live at Low Festival in Spain, comes as a clear double-vinyl gatefold. This Is What You Wanted was recorded live in Mexico City and the extended set is included here on Blu-Ray. Live From The White Room, recorded at Studio 1 Twickenham Studios, brings seven songs from the band’s acclaimed new album Never Let Me Go to life and is presented in a softpak gatefold CD.

The box set features songs from their eponymous debut Placebo, Black Market Music, Sleeping With Ghosts, Battle For The Sun, and Loud Like Love. Their acclaimed new album Never Let Me Go – which charted in the Top 10 in 13 countries on release last year – is also well represented here, including the album’s lead single ‘Beautiful James’ which currently has over 35 million streams across platforms. Beloved fan-favourite covers like Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill’ and Tears For Fears’ ‘Shout’ also feature.

In 2023, one of the great live bands of the last twenty-five years finally gets the live album release they deserve. Placebo Live reasserts why their show continues to be the essential experience that it always has been.
