Update: So it wasn't the announcement some of us were hoping for, but nevertheless it's something. Portishead are going to play at All Tomorrow's Parties, Nightmare Before Christmas in December 2007. This will make it the band's first performance in ten years! Oh, whom are we kidding, this still rules.
Official message from the band:
SO THEN WE'RE OFF........
Portishead are to be the next curators and will be performing exclusively at All Tomorrow's Parties, Nightmare Before Christmas in December 2007.
They will be playing their first full live set featuring new material in nearly 10 years at the event which is set for December 7, 8 & 9 at Butlins Holiday Camp at Minehead.
"We have always loved the All Tomorrow's Parties set up and we're happy our first shows will be there. It's great to have the opportunity to introduce bands we love or have influenced us. We've chosen a diverse collection of artists to play with us and we're really looking forward to it" - we said that.
Details of the line up will be announced here and at the All Tomorrow's Parties site www.atpfestival.com where you'll also find details of how to buy tickets, accommodation available and how to get there.
SO THERE WE GO THEN.
