PORTUGAL. THE MAN IN CONCERT:Indie rock outfit Portugal. The Man have been delighting fans with their obscure lyrics and impressive guitar skills since their inception in 2004. Whether they're belting out "Modern Jesus" in unison or shredding on "Purple Yellow Red and Blue", Portugal. The Man are constantly reinventing themselves as they rework their original songs during their live shows. Back on tour, the band will have fans dancing to their catchy tunes all night on a string of highly anticipated dates. BACKGROUND SNAPSHOT:Alaska-based Portugal. The Man started out as a side project by John Gourley after the split of his band Anatomy of a Ghost in 2002. He recruited friend Zach Carothers on bass and enlisted the help of a drum machine to give the band a more complete sound. The duo gathered three more members to round out the band's lineup and spent time crafting their music and touring heavily before the release of their 2006 debut Waiter: "You Vultures!" Although the band has gone through several lineup changes their signature sound has never been compromised on the six records that have followed, and they've remained one of indie rock's hottest acts throughout the course of their 10-year reign. Known for their thrilling live performances, Portugal. The Man are set to share their vast collection of jams with dedicated followers and new fans on a highly anticipated world tour. FANS WHO BOUGHT TICKETS SAY:"Sonically sensational -- as expected -- and their musicianship was evident and tasty. Songs flowed together spectacularly and easily, with at least three clever Beatles homage/covers.""This was an amazing show, the band had played a different array of music from all their albums, not just their newest. Wonderful energy and I can't wait for them to come back into town again!""These guys make seriously good music and were great to see live. Played a good mix of new album (Evil Friends) and older stuff from Censored Colors, Satanic Satanists, and others."

When going to see Portugal. I was expecting a nice mellow evening like their albums sound. I was pleasantly surprised to see a full on rock show with amazing showmanship with surprising song choices. Everything about the band was solid, each person held their own and each member got better and better off of the next. I've seen hundreds of shows in my life including huge acts like Elton, The Stones, Paul McCartney, and more and this show was easily in the top 3 best I've ever seen.

PTM was amazing

Having seen Portugal the Man. before, this performance was disappointing. They did not seem to be engaged with their performance and seemed to rely on special effects, like the trippy and distorted videos playing behind them. They were so distracted that they played not one, but two of their songs twice. I would have preferred to hear more variety. In addition, the crowd was obnoxious and drunk. Despite all of this, however, Electric Guest, was a pleasant surprise. I was impressed with the energy and enthusiasm of their lead singer and really enjoyed their performance.

4 out of 5 acts were great!

Coulda done without Beth Ditto. She didnt really fit with the rest of the acts and I had a hard time listening to her to be honest, not great. Garbage Greek was stellar, definitely made me a fan. Elecrtic Guest was good too. Portugal was fantastic. Really fun show.
