GUYLINER, looking moody and generally being androgynous is probably how most of us remember Placebo.

The band won legions of fans throughout the ninetines and noughties with hits like Pure Morning and Nancy Boy.

It’s hard to believe the band is approaching its 20th year, but after making seven albums and selling 11 million records worldwide, they are now setting their sights on Leeds.

Placebo will perform at the O2 Academy on March 9 – but it was recently announced that they will also host an exclusive after-party.

The clubnight will see the band perform DJ sets at a top secret venue, which will be a stone’s throw from the O2 Academy and will be announced nearer the time.

The event aims to raise awareness for the CALM charity and will also feature DJ sets from Reverend and The Makers frontman Jon McClure and MJ of Leeds natives Hookworms.

Placebo has previously been keen to show support for the charity, which provides help and support to tackle mental health problems in an effort to prevent suicide, which is currently the biggest killer of young men in the UK.

Contemporary British artist Stuart Semple has also designed a limited set of artwork posters for the fundraiser, and these will be framed and signed before being auctioned online to raise more cash the cause.

Fans attending the O2 Academy gig can also get a discount on the after-party, and all proceeds from the event will go to CALM.
