BRITISH rockers Placebo will not be rescheduling their Perth Arena show that was cancelled due to illness last week.

The gig in the Perth Arena should have kicked off their Australian tour on September 4 but they had to pull out because frontman Brian Molko was sick.

A few days later, the band made it on stage for the Adelaide gig and have been performing at every other stop on the tour at Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.

However, plans to try to reschedule the Perth show have not worked out, promoters TEG Live revealed on Tuesday.

“TEG Live regrets to advise that Placebo are unable to reschedule their Perth Arena concert,” it said in a statement.

“Every effort was made to try to find an alternative date but this has not proved to be possible.Ticket purchasers can now receive full refunds from the point of purchase.”

The alternative band, known for songs such as Nancy Boy and Every You Every Me, are marking 20 years together.

They have two more dates left on the Australian tour in Newcastle and Canberra.

“Placebo extends their apologies and deep thanks to their Perth fans for their well wishes, patience and understanding and hope to be able to return to Perth in the not-too-distant future,” TEG said.
