METRIC – Emily Haines Fucking Amazing Show

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

IMG_9632Emily Haines and her band Metric lived up to everyone’s expectations and then some last night. Initially walking up to La Zona Rosa and seeing the line I was rather surprised and happy to learn the show was soldout.  Even with Cage the Elephant down the street and Del the Funky Homosapien and the Whigs in town, there was still a decent crowd of ticket seekers trying to get in.  Throughout their hour and a half set full of favorites; Poster of a Girl, Help I’m Alive, Monster Hospital, Dead Disco, and encoring with an acoustic Combat Baby, Emily continued to bring an amazing energy to her brand of Indie Rock.  Overall a wonderful show and I’m now completely smitten with Emily.  My camera sucks so I’ve stolen these vids off youtube, credit to the uploaders. Go ahead and grab an acoustic Help I’m Alive

PLACEBO POSTPONE NORTH AMERICAN TOUR
17.08.2009
PLACEBO have today announced they have been forced to postpone their
forthcoming tour of North America after their lead singer, Brian Molko,
collapsed on stage at Summer Sonic Festival in Osaka, Japan.
Brian had picked up a virus in Asia which, coupled with jet lag and exhaustion,
caused the problem after the first song.

Brian is now back home in London recovering, but has been ordered by his
doctors to take a 6 week long period of rest. Regrettably therefore, the
band and management have no option but to postpone the forthcoming North
American tour.

Riverman Management commented, “This is pretty
devastating for everyone – we’ve only ever cancelled 3 shows in
Placebo’s 14 year history, however Brian’s health is paramount. Our
sincere apologies go out to Placebo’s loyal American fans who have
waited a long time to see the band. We will try and do everything to
re-arrange the dates as soon as possible”.

The band have had an intensive worldwide schedule this year, promoting
their 6th studio album ‘Battle for the Sun’, this includes 24 high
profile festival performances over the summer, an unprecedented amount
for any band in 2009.

Tickets can be refunded at the point of purchase.

Please keep checking PLACEBOWORLD.co.uk for any additional information.
