English rock band Placebo stopped their set in Newcastle tonight after a fight broke out in the audience.
“We’re here to put on a good and enjoyable show for you all. We won’t put up with fighting” Brian Molko said, as security at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre removed a couple of dickheads who decided to bring back the biff at a Placebo gig.
Brian owned the situation, much to the admiration of the rest of the audience. In an effort to ensure the safety of the rest of the crowd, he waited until the pair were removed by security before kicking off the show again – Which everyone agrees was brilliant.
We’ve written about this kind of shit at local shows many times. FFS, who makes the effort to leave the house on a Tuesday night only to get kicked out of one of the best tours to hit Newcastle this year?
You can see some video of the incident below.

If it's on in Newcastle, it's on Newcastle Live
