Portishead at 1STBANK Center on October 27
Stop the freaking presses -- hell, for that matter, stop what you're doing and take note: We've just received word that Portishead is coming to town. Specifically, the outfit is slated to appear at 1STBANK Center on Thursday, October 27 -- and it's one of only seven U.S. dates announced so far. If you need us on that day, point the Buick towards Broomfield.
Of the bazillion shows we've seen in our lifetime, we've never had the chance to see Portishead -- a group we've been carrying on a heated love affair with since the very first moment we heard this song -- so you'll have to pardon the gushing. We're just a little excited.
Anyhow, although tickets don't officially go on sale until this Saturday, July 16 at 10 a.m., a limited number are are available right now through Thursday for $39.50 - $49.50 (plus handling charges) on the act's website. Have at it. Full dates listed below.
