Placebo Live in Hong Kong- 10/03/04: This band who has been in the spotlight for around 8 years came to Hong Kong to perform for one night, where a number of people only found out a week before, turned out to give a great show to everyone in Hong Kong who made it to Hitec that night. The band played a variety of songs from their most recent to other variations, but not some of their classics that the fans were hoping. From our forums people complained about the pushing and shoving in the crowd, but what do you expect at a concert?! Free standing is free movement and the 2,000+ crowd (this is the figure that someone who works with the promoters told us)overall seemed to enjoy the show.
One of the first comments heard after the gig was that more International bands should come each month, hopefully we will get this in Hong Kong, but may take a bit of time.
