Portishead 2011 Auckland Show Announced

Portishead 2011 Auckland Show Announced

Nobody sounds like Portishead. After a 14-year absence, legendary Bristol band Portishead are returning to captivate and transport New Zealand fans once again. Already confirmed to headline the highly anticipated Harvest music and art festivals taking place in Australia in November, Portishead will take the band’s music further afield down to Auckland, New Zealand.

With a band led by the core trio of Geoff Barrow, Beth Gibbons and Adrian Utley, Portishead have been blowing audiences away in Europe this summer with a spectacular show featuring tracks from each of their three albums, and will be touring North America before their last shows of the year in New Zealand and Australia.


Tickets on sale 9am Friday 26th August from Ticketmaster.
