UPSET fans took to social media to complain after English band Placebo cancelled their Perth Arena show just two hours before the start time last night.
The band blamed the cancellation on an illness to singer Brian Molko, but punters were clearly unhappy with the short notice of the cancellation.

Perth Arena posted about the cancellation on Facebook, although they did not divulge the nature of Mr Molko’s illness.
The band shot to success in the late 1990s on the back of hits like Pure Morning, Every You Every Me and Nancy Boy.
Concertgoers have been asked to hold their tickets.
The band is scheduled to play in Adelaide tonight and Sydney tomorrow.
