It has been confirmed Portishead will play one show in Auckland in November.

The British trip-hop act will perform at Vector Arena on November 10.

The internet was buzzing with the rumour yesterday after Australian dates alongside Mercury Rev were confirmed.  However, there is no mention of Mercury Rev in the official announcement of the New Zealand show.

Both bands are due to play at the Australian Harvest Festival.

Led by ghostly singer Beth Gibbons, Portishead led the late-90s UK trip-hop movement alongside Tricky and Massive Attack thanks to 1994's Dummy and 1997's Portishead.

They reformed in 2008 and released their critically acclaimed third album, Third.

Tickets go on sale Friday, August 26 from www.ticketmaster.co.nz
