Placebo: Brian Molko and his group in Russia

May 24 2007

Popular British rockers Placebo, tomorrow give his last, the third concert in a row in Russia. 22 and 23 May the group were pleased with their fans in Moscow club "B1 Maximum», and on May 25 a group of Brian Molko perform at international festival Maxidrom 2007 in St. Petersburg.

Placebo history began in the mid-90's with a group, then still called Ashtray Heart ("Ashen heart"): 3 young men, Brian Molko, Stefan Olsdal and Robert Shultsberg together rehearsing and experimenting with sound. And at the beginning of 1995 they first came on the scene called - Placebo. The term «Placebo» means a drug, giving a purely psychological effect. The so-called dummy pill. It took a couple of years in the UK started talking seriously about the emergence of new stars on the rock scene.

Abounded on 2 consecutive days the atmosphere of total madness and lust musicians felt is on its way to the club. Young people with zakosom appearance by Brian Molko and girls lined up a hundred meters in length, to see their idols. Both days at the club "B1" was not breathe.

According to plans of the organizers of the opening act for Placebo was to serve the American group Evaline. Alas, something did not work and they hastily replaced by graduates of "American Idol" group of the GDR. During the performance of this team on the big screens was the countdown, after which the group had to leave the scene. For the fans and for me personally, every second stretched for 3.

Warming up is over half of the ninth evening. Everyone is waiting for important guests, but the musicians in the room obviously not in a hurry. The audience entertained for about an hour the woman technician. A lady about 30 years continuously made it clear the room as she was lucky that she was on stage with by the Placebo. His speech the British began singing Infra-red. Hall, and in particular its female half, struggled in hysterics. Almost all come from the first minute to start dancing.

Both days of the program, performed by the group was composed of the same songs. Among the songs sounded like to highlight «Soulmates», «I know», «Special Needs», «WYIN», «One Of A Kind», «Running Up That Hill», «The Bitter End», «20 Years» and " Special K ». Emotional speech Placebo was supported by a well-chosen visuals on the screens.

The Group has fulfilled very well. If the first day of the Moscow performance of Placebo fans could still be a claim for dedication of the musicians, the second day the British have put at 100%. Having played his polutrochasovoy setlist, Placebo left the stage to loud applause.
