Placebo was formed in London in 1994 by vocalist–guitarist Brian Molko and bassist–guitarist Stefan Olsdal. Drummer Robert Schultzberg joined the band in 1994, but left in 1996 shortly after the release of the band’s eponymous debut album, due to conflicts with Molko, and was replaced the same year by Steve Hewitt.
Steve Hewitt left Placebo in 2007, due to personal and musical differences. He was replaced the following year by Steve Forrest. Placebo released two albums with Steve Forrest, who left in 2015 to pursue his own musical career. Since 2015, Placebo perform as a duo with four additional live musicians on stage.
The discography of Placebo consists of seven studio albums, three compilation albums, six extended plays, and thirty-one singles. Their self-titled debut album was released in 1996, Without You I’m Nothing in 1998, Black Market Music in 2000, Sleeping with Ghosts in 2003, Meds in 2006, Battle for the Sun in 2009, and Loud Like Love in 2013. To date, the band sold around 11 million records worldwide.
Piazza Sordello is a beautiful square in Mantua, dedicated to the Mantuan troubadour of the 13th century, Sordello da Goito. The square was built in 1330, and is now overlooked by important buildings such as the Cathedral of San Pietro, Palazzo Ducale, Palazzo Bonacolsi, and Palazzo Bianchi.
The square is located about 1.2 kilometers away from the Mantua railway station. The closest bus stop, Duomo, is located in the northeastern corner of the square, on the bus Lines 4C, 4S, 4T, 6 and 12.
