Portishead Map First U.S. Tour in 13 Years
Iconic U.K. trip-hop act will make 10-city run after curating NJ's All Tomorrow's Parties fest.
Portishead fans in North America are all too familiar with the gaps in the UK trip-hop trio’s 17-year career, especially when it comes to seeing them on a stateside tour. But after the band finishes curating two days of ATP’s All Tomorrow’s Parties in early October, Portishead will embark on its first full North American trek since 1998. Check out the full list of dates below.
The 10-city jaunt will come three years after the release of Portishead’s third album, Third (which came 11 years after the band’s second, self-titled LP), and their mind-blowing performance at 2008’s Coachella festival.
“We’ve always thought that we must come back to tour in the States, something we wanted to do with the release of Third, but our schedule just wouldn’t allow it,” said Portishead’s Adrian Utley. “Being that we were asked to curate [All Tomorrow’s Parties], this just seemed like a good start to touring the States… We are absolutely delighted to come back.”
A limited run of tickets are available today through July 14 via Portishead’s website. Tickets go on sale to the general public July 15-16 (Chicago sales start July 22).
