Selling off more than 20 years worth of memorabilia...

Placebo have raised more than £27,500 for CALM after selling off more than 20 years worth of memorabilia.

The group have collected some unique items over the years, ranging from costumes to guitars to autographed items from touring partners.

Toasting their 20th anniversary recently, Placebo decided to host a special auction where fans could pick up unique items of memorabilia.

Over 300 items went on sale, including Brian Molko’s iconic ribbed jumper from ‘Pure Morning’ video, ‘Without You I’m Nothing’ CD single ft. David Bowie, signed by David Bowie himself, and the Vivienne Westwood jacket worn by Stefan Olsdal during 1999 BRIT Awards performance.

The auction has now closed, with Placebo raising more than £27,500 for CALM, a charity very close to the band's hearts.

Placebo comment:

“Dear all at CALM,
When we began thinking about auctioning off our Placebo memorabilia, we knew that the proceeds had to go towards something that was close to our hearts.
Now that the auction is over, we are pleased to say it raised made more than we expected, and we want to present to CALM £27,500. Brian and I can but commend you on your mission, and we humbly hope the proceeds can go to help you carry on your excellent work.
Long may it continue!
Peace and love, Stefan and Brian”
