Placebo played in London on 27 & 28, giving us two awesome shows in Brixton Academy.
The first show was totally SOLD OUT and it was an emotion to arrive there, see that and be part of the event. And since the night after another show was to come, some people after the first, already stayed and queue for the second ;)
Two were the opening acts both nights: the performance of "Little Fish" (picture above) and "Evaline" (picture below). Both amazingly surprising. Especially we were really much impressed by the six guys from 'Evaline', their presence on stage and.. also off the stage, since their lead singer jumped often into the crowd ;)
Here you can listen to "Hours" from their "Patterned" E.P. http://soundcloud.com/riverman-management/evaline-hours
And then.. Placebo ;)
During the two days the staff of Placebo and Arena gave to some lucky fans some bracelets to have access to an Aftershow Party on 28 @ Plan B in London. There, the "Hotel Persona" -so Stephan Olsdal himself and David Amen had a DJ Set for their Fans, with also a curious remix of Placebo song 'The Bitter End' ft. Rihanna "Rude Boy".

Some years might have passed since their golden age but the lead singer Axl Rose and his 'new' band rocked the Mediolanum Forum, Assago (Mi) really hard!!
It was a big pleasure, for the youngest generation like ours to be able to listen live to the oldest hits "Welcome to the Jungle" "Sweetchild o' mine" "November Rain" "Paradise city" as it surely was for the most affectionate fans to see that Axl Rose is still.. Axl Rose!
We'll keep this gig in our memories, together with the bruises from first row -we proudly showed around anyway ;)

The Murderdolls played as opening act for Guns n' Roses Concert in Milan! Definitely effective in warming up the big crowd of the Mediolanum Forum, Assago (Milano).
Really impressive on stage with hard style, heavy make up and some masks.
We now want to go around with the same umbrella that the lead singer showed us screaming "if you like it, say FUCK!"
