Touring British band Placebo were forced to interrupt their gig in Newcastle on Tuesday night to boot out a group of fighting audience members.

Brian Molko, frontman of the '90s alt-rockers, stopped the show mid-gig to single out the crowd members, who reportedly gave him the finger as they were escorted out.

"You're all leaving... especially you, baseball cap backwards," the singer said, as audience members chanted "f--- off!" at the offending group.

"What a waste of time and money... We're working here, we're trying to do a good show for you guys," he said.

A spokesperson from the Newcastle Entertainment Centre confirmed the gig was "stopped for two to three minutes and the crowd were very supportive".

One of the men in a single act of defiance decided to put his finger up at the lead singer. Brian went on to finish by saying what a waste of money for the both of you. #placebo #livemusic #rocknroll #placeboinaustralia #australiantour #placeboontour #ukrock #20yearsofplacebo #brianmolko #leadsinger #concert #whatanight

The band, best known for '90s hits Every You Every Me, Pure Morning and Nancy Boy, are on their first headlining tour in 11 years to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their self-titled debut album.

Despite being forced to cancel the first leg in Perth because Molko was sick, the tour has earned glowing reviews for its nostalgic leanings and a pointed barb in Melbourne's Margaret Court Arena that took aim at its namesake's anti-marriage equality comments.

The tour wraps up in Canberra on Thursday.
