Anyone anticipating a gap similar to the one that stretched out between Portishead’s second and third albums can at least expect some live action from the group. Geoff Barrow and his band have already announced a set of festival shows in June and July across Europe in 2011, but today he dropped some far more appetizing news on Twitter.
“We’re doing some split headline shows with arcade fire next year,” Barrow tweeted. “I’m really looking forward to it..proper band!!” Arcade Fire is scheduled to play a few of the same festivals as Portishead next year, but let’s hope this is a longer jaunt that Barrow is tweeting about. No details are available yet, but this is likely to be one of the tours of 2011.
