Portishead

"On our last tour it collapsed because of personal things, not between the band, but relationships, divorces," Geoff Barrow told BBC 6 Music news.

"We hadn't stopped since [debut album] Dummy," he said, "but it's fine now."

However, producer and instrumentalist Barrow admitted the band's complex, claustrophobic sound often proved a headache to recreate live.

"We have to take out lots of old gear and it's like a jigsaw puzzle, trying to get the right sound," he said.

"It's not like we are pushing 'go' on a computer and singing along to it. It's something a bit more interesting than just straight up rock bands or dance acts."

Portishead achieved overnight success with Dummy, which won the Mercury Music Prize in 1995 with its eerie electronic soundscapes, haunted by Beth Gibbons tremulous vocals.

They followed it up with a grainier, self-titled album in 1997, featuring the top 10 hit All Mine - later covered by Tom Jones.

But the band appeared to split up in the wake of their 1998 US tour, releasing several side projects and producing music for other bands.

However, after making a return to the Portishead name in 2008, they recently confirmed they would start work on a fourth album in January 2012.[BBC]

After two shows at ATP in Asbury Park, Portishead finally made their official return to NYC at Hammerstein Ballroom last night (10/4). Here are some pictures from the amazing show which was their first of two in Manhattan.

The setlists so far have varied by like one song each night. Their 90-minute, 15-song Hammerstein performance began at 9:30pm after a set by their tour-mate Thought Forms. They do it again tonight which is also when they appear on Fallon. Here are some pictures from the first night.

More pictures and the setlist from last night below...

"i'm a cheap asshole and didn't go to the far superior show in asbury park" -- all of these dumbasses

McGregor!

This wasn't a life-changing concert by any means but the heavy songs BROUGHT THE HOUSE DOWN way to fucking go whichever poor soul was working the sound

Posted by Anonymous | October 5, 2011 3:15 AM

Portishead was probably the best show of the year for me, only one that might have been better was Deftones in Hartford, followed by Foals in Providence the next day. Beth's voice was absolutely perfect and the band sounded great. Played everything I wanted to hear...a very good mix of all three records. Newish song reminded me of Devo Haha. Crowd was great...noisy when they needed to be and quiet when it needed to. No one dare speak during Roads, which was beautiful. Another douche was taking pics with his tablet, which is the worst trend out right now. Go die in a ditch if you're doing that.

SEE THIS BAND IMMEDIATELY IF YOU CAN!

Yeah I took about a hundred pics with my iPad at the show it was awesome. I hope I was the one 3:29 was talking about and I hoped when I took the pictures I blocked that persons view.

My ticket for tonight says that I am seated in BALC1 Row GA2. Where is this? I'm looking at the seating chart and the balconies are 101, 102,...105. Also I assume everyone in the balconies has a specifically assigned seat?

portishead 930 - 1100 sharp

I liked the Portishead show much more than Radiohead....could be that it was my 1st time seeing Beth & Co. and I've seen Radiohead many times. Either way, both bands are excellent.

If you are taking pics with an iPad during a performance, you deserve to have said device smashed to pieces. Only in NY or LA would this happen. Typical d-bag would take pictures, ruin the night for those around them, and then tell their friends (who desperately wanted to be at the show) that it was meh, or not worth their time.

New Trend at concerts.....ripping an iPad out of some jerk's weak hands and seeing how far/ hard you can throw it into a wall. Seriously, once you threaten that you're willing to get booted from the show by beating their face with their iPad, I'm sure they would put it away. Win Win!

Posted by Anonymous | October 5, 2011 9:43 AM

The show was so much more than I thought it would be. Didn't think Portishead could pull off their sound live and they exceeded my expectations. Sound was amazing. Thumbs up to the sound engineers. Looking forward to tonight.
Yes I agree about camera phones , cameras and tablets. Keep them at home and enjoy the experience.
I hope musicians and venues start banning use of cameras at shows. It really takes away from the whole experience.
Will be looking for tablets tonight with my slingshot.

Best show of the year...I wanna do it again tonight!

Why no mention or photos if the support band. Hand-picked by Portishead for this tour, Thought Forms really are a great band and worth seeing. BV are usually really good at posting photos of the support band, so I'm surprised no mention here. Hopefully you will tonight.

Can we please get more shows like this? Reminds you of how sub-par music around here has become.

Posted by Anonymous | October 5, 2011 9:53 AM

Awesomeness:
Beth Gibbon's emotional hunch over that mike made my soul sing.
Slide show looming in the background seriously amplified the music.
Sound was perfect.
Adrian Utley is so hot.

Awfulness:
The opening act was horrible
The long wait for them to appear was a total buzz kill.
Hammerstein ballroom staff, 10 million stupid rules, and overpriced drinks makes me never want to go back again.

In all, a long term desire to see this band live was satisfied and I'm happy.

There are music lovers and there are poeple who kinda like music and just feel a need to be at major events. The latter cannot live in the moment and are easily distracted. Their genuine want to be there is based on the 'idea' of being there while taking lousy cell phone videos that nobody will ever see.

As you would expect this band is amazing and still retains a lot of what won people over in 1995. Great Show. Heads up though.The line was pretty ridiculous when I got there last night at 8:45, down the block and then some, but moved realtively quick, got in just a few minutes before lights went down at 9:20. Security is strict and will take your lighters and whatever else but thats only if you can't hide them well. Have fun if you got tix...one of the best shows of the year by far...

"So who wins, Portishead or Radiohead?"

"I liked the Portishead show much more than Radiohead....could be that it was my 1st time seeing Beth & Co"

both are spectacular acts, and yes i would agree that the first time (for both) is the most amazing. my first radiohead show was definitely my favorite of the times i've seen them and portishead at coachella was on the same level. i've also seen radiohead several times since then. i say its a tie. sadly won't be seeing portishead this time around

Posted by Anonymous | October 5, 2011 10:41 AM

This show was absolutely amazing. I can easily put this as my favorite show in several years, there was so much energy on stage and in the audience, and Beth's voice and the music sounds much better live.
If you get to attend tonight's show, make your way as close to the front as you can, you will be pleasantly surprised toward the end :)

place started to pack around 8 pm, Portishead got on stage at 9:30 and from then on... magic!

Posted by Anonymous | October 5, 2011 10:47 AM

For those sitting upstairs, was the assigned seating adhered to or was it first come first served? My mezz ticket has an assigned seat and I'm hoping it will be enforced since it's a front row seat.

Posted by Anonymous | October 5, 2011 10:50 AM

as someone who attended both shows at asbury park, i'd say it's worth it to drop $150 for a GA ticket. really great show

While we all know that Beth has an utterly enchanting voice, it isn't until you see Portishead live that you'll fully realize just how incredible the band is as a whole. Seriously, such a amazingly memorable experience!! Do NOT miss this rare opportunity!

8:32: I don't remember cocaine, but were those parasites all the way to the right (facing the stage)? About halfway distance from the stage?

A couple of us were around some goth looking girl with her steroid infused boyfriend and some other girl too. They were some of the most obnoxious people in a crowd ever. Seriously wished violence on them.

The ushers said the seats were FC/FS. Our seats were occupied, so we found others, but were then booted by the ticketholders. So we went to claim our rightful seats (FC/FS my ass: hammerstein staff is lazy, but this is NYC, I'm used to it). The male of the couple was a douche, so I didn't feel awful about it. Our seatneighbor turned to us and said "Thanks, you guys seem nicer than those two". Whoever you were, seatmate, I hope we didn't disappoint!
Otherwise, what an odd crowd! There are few times I've considered the energy in a room to be palpably electric, this was one of them for sure.

Posted by clarke | October 5, 2011 1:11 PM

will check them again tonight but i'm telling you, most of the ATP crowd had found the shows underwhelming.
on saturday there was some crowd who bought one day pass especially to see portishead so they got some good reaction on stage but on sunday the mostly weekend pass holders crowd fell to sleep mid show.

and i really love it when kids in their 20s who go to one show a month are twitting it was "the best they ever saw".
i never thought portishead new york crowd would be that lamestream.

Posted by ME | October 5, 2011 1:23 PM

@123pm obviously you never been to enough ny shows my friend. its mostly people who likes to tweet and take pics with their phone instead of actually enjoying the show.

when the band is playing seriously go back towards the back to chit chat with your friend. no one cares what you have to say.

WTF are you talking about??!?!??!! I went both nights @ ATP and Portishead was absuloutely amazing!!!

Btw, how would you possibly know what 'most' of the crowd thought considering that you prob only talked to a small handful of peeps who were done with you after obligatory introductions. Stuff it!

Posted by Anonymous | October 5, 2011 1:34 PM

^^^ "most of the ATP crowd had found the shows underwhelming." -- simply untrue. I saw both shows and was floored both nights...as was the 7 other people I was with. There was much love in that room.

Posted by Half Chemical | October 5, 2011 1:36 PM

I was at ATP, and don't recall a single person thinking it was anything other than amazing. The closest were two people (of about 30 that I spoke to) that left before the Sunday show, thinking they'd be identical. And even they gave some serious thought to staying the night, and going right to work from Asbury.

Underwhelming??? Weekend pass holders fell asleep??? You either weren't there or are just a huge d-bag loser. Portishead ruled and everyone in attendance at ATP can agree with that!

Agreed it was one of the best I have seen in awhile; and can't you feel that unrighteous great attitude of the band that lacks any bougie feel (uhhhum).

BUT all the cameras sucked. It is no 2003 and extremely cheesy. As an aside, keep this in mind...anyone out there agree with the protesters on Wall Street. If so leave your cameras at home because it is those bankers that did all the financing on your little geek treats. As well as all the rare earth metals mined by our mining friends around the world.

Again, amazing show...leave the cameras at home.

Posted by buckybosun | October 6, 2011 10:08 AM

Wednesday's show was really great. It is ironic that since the band has such a thin recorded catalogue, they are almost forced to play every one of their great songs live. Total command from Beth, it was a real treat to hear her sing. The band was terrific and the sound was both huge and clear. The drone and military drum thing worked for me. I saw them the last time they played Hammerstein and enjoyed this show more--the songs from Third added some serious weight.

The crowd was very respectful except for the cellphone/camera thing (maybe they should issue paintball guns to combat this--thwack!). Not a lot of talking during the music where I was, and it created an atmosphere where when a guy started singing along, he quickly realized that he was out of line and actually apologized. You don't go to the museum and doodle on the paintings, do you? Do you? Well then. So I'm obviously a dick, but not having to resort to anti-dick dickery was refreshing for a change.

I don't go to many shows, but even if I had, this one was exceptional. Balcony seats were first come, first served except for the first two rows. Yes, people sparked up, myself included. Sound and performance was both amazing. Nothing wrong with taking pictures and video...as long as it's with a discreetly sized device, not a fucking iPad. Without technology, we wouldn't have Portishead or so many of our other favorite bands. If you paid for the ticket, then you should at least be able to take away a few recorded memories along with the mental ones. Just sayin', enjoy the damn show. And for goodness sake stand up and clap you up-tight New Yorkers; I am a New Yorker, so eat that one.
