After curating All Tomorrow’s Parties presentation I’ll Be Your Mirror, Portishead will tour throughout the rest of October across Canada and the US. With two dates scheduled for I’ll Be Your Mirror, the tour will see the band play 14 dates.
Despite their surprise appearance at Coachella in 2008 following the release of their latest studio album, Third, this October tour will be their first in North America since 1998.
After I’ll Be Your Mirror concludes Oct. 2, Portishead will weave through New York, Montreal, Toronto, and Chicago before dropping down to Mexico for the Corona Festival. From Mexico, the band will travel up the West Coast to Vancouver before ending the tour in Denver.
A limited number of tickets for the non-festival shows will be available here until Thursday July 14. General ticket sales will begin this Friday with the Chicago show tickets going on sale July 22.
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, said Adrian Utley.
