Placebo To Play One Off Theatre Show

Placebo have announced that they will play a one-off show at London's Coronet Theatre next month.

The intimate show on March 7 will be a warm-up for the band's massive South American tour which begins mid-March.

The same week as the special show, the band will also be re-releasing ten rare cover versions as an iTunes download album. The tracks were previously only available as a bonus disc with 2003's album "Sleeping With Ghosts."

"Covers" includes a version of Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill" and Pixies' sublime "Where Is My Mind."

Other tracks include Placebo-ised versions of T-Rex's "20th Century Boy," Moz's "Bigmouth Strikes Again."

Tickets for the Coronet warm-up went on sale this morning, priced £25.
