How to Hire PLACEBO For Your Event!
Brian Molko, Stefan Olsdal
Placebo are a British rock band, formed in London in 1994 by vocalist–guitarist Brian Molko and bassist–guitarist Stefan Olsdal. Drummer Robert Schultzberg joined in late 1994 but left in 1996 shortly after the release of the band’s eponymous debut album due to conflicts with Molko, and was replaced the same year by Steve Hewitt.
Placebo‘s influences include David Bowie, Can, Iggy Pop and the Stooges, Pixies, Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails. The New York Times compared them to bands of the “first wave of post-punk rock, particularly New Order, The Cure, early U2 and Talking Heads”.

Following the release of a demo, a split single, and their eponymous debut album, Placebo gained exposure in 1997 after the single “Nancy Boy” became popular in the UK, a song notorious at the time for its gender-bending content.
The band stood out amongst the Britpop scene they were associated with at the time for their androgynous appearance and musical content, and lyrics which openly discussed sexuality, mental health, and drug use.
Placebo‘s music has typically been labeled as alternative rock. They have, however, also incorporated different sounds in their music throughout their career. Critics have also described the band’s sound as pop punk, industrial rock, Britpop, glam rock, gothic rock, electronic rock, post-punk revival, and experimental rock. Progressive rock elements in the band’s earlier works along with grunge and punk rock influences were also noted.
Lyrically, Placebo‘s music contains many references to drugs and sexuality.
Their discography includes six extended plays, and 33 singles.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE PLACEBO?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire PLACEBO for an event?)
(i.e., what is PLACEBO booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for PLACEBO, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
