    For the first time since 1998, Portishead announce their North American tour this October 2011! The trip-hop legends will grace stages for the first time in 13 years. Trip-hop hooray.

    Portishead kick off their tour at this year's All Tomorrow's Parties presentation, I'll Be Your Mirror, Saturday October 1st and Sunday October 2nd taking place in Asbury Park, NJ. Portishead co-curated these two days of the three-day festival. According to Adrian Utley, "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. Being that we were asked to curate I'll be your Mirror, this just seemed like a good start to touring the states - it set's it off in absolutely the right way. We are absolutely delighted to come back."
