During the course of three decades, eight albums and more than 14million album sales, Placebo have maintained an experimental edge to their sound – with 2022 album Never Let Me Go hailed as a ‘gob-smackingly urgent long-player’.

Channelling Molko and Olsdal’s skills as songwriters and sound-makers, Never Let Me Go satisfies the near-brutal appetite for self-expression which has been a trademark since early singles Pure Morning, Nancy Boy, and Without You I’m Nothing, alongside a furious relevance for today’s listeners.

The multi-platinum selling band continue to mix alt-rock with goth and electronica, to create a signature sound which draws in a cult following around the world.

Female alt-pop-rock four-piece Friedberg, were formed in London in 2019 and are fronted by singer-songwriter and actress Anna F. Their single Go Wild became a runaway hit when it featured on the FIFA 2020 soundtrack and BBC’sNormal People.

Placebo join Tom Jones, Grace Jones, Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Sheryl Crow, Underworld, Rick Astley, Jess Glynne, Air, Fatboy Slim, PJ Harvey, Underworld, Tom Odell, Pixies, IDLES, Richard Ashcroft, McFly, Loyle Carner and Status Quo among the headliners for TK Maxx presents Live at The Piece Hall 2024 – with more to be announced.

Nicky Chance-Thompson MBE DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust, said: This is yet another top-quality gig that is sure to get the courtyard rocking this summer.
