Statement of Placebo about the situation

About the cancelled concert in Shanghai at the Summer Sonic Festival.

Post on Instagram Placeboworld: "Placebo are very sorry to announce that they are no longer able to perform at the Summer Sonic Festival in Shanghai in September.

A picture of the Dalai Lama with a quote was posted on the band's instagram account which has very sadly resulted in a lifetime ban by the Ministry of Culture in China. We apologise to all the fans who were hoping to see Placebo perform at this event and in China."
