Portugal. The Man Tour Preview and Giveaway!

Want to win two tickets to see Portugal. The Man? See below!

Indie sweethearts turned mainstream love affair, the alternative rock band Portugal. The Man is on a Summer/Fall tour stopping by Charlotte, NC on Sept 18th at Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre.

John Gourley and Zac Carothers, leading duo of the band, managed to do what many indie bands can’t: crossover. Sure, the first thing everyone does is throw around the term “sellout” (it’s 2018, let’s bury that terminology) but truthfully, who doesn’t want to see their favorite band make it and become successful? Finding a new audience is great so fresh off their Winter antics after their Grammy win for Best Pop Duo/Group performance for their hit song “Feel It Still” off the Woodstock album. They’ve got dates from August to October for you and all those newbies to check them out.           

Portugal is a favorite band to recommend because they produce good music that transcends the age gap. My son loves them and discovered them first. Between him playing their music, and covering them for Shutter16, I started listening as well.  When covering their shows, you will catch fans of all ages interacting and dancing. A tell-tale way to know if a band is truly timeless is by their listeners.

Since Portugal has that indie history going for them, their fans truly run the gamut. Hipsters and millennials can enjoy them with baby boomers without either feeling the need to defend their choice. They’ve worked with producers like Danger Mouse but sampled The Marvelettes “Mr. Postman” for “Feel It Still” which is why they have such appeal. The band is good at blending that old school vibe within their own rock and roll one. Good music, bringing world peace and moving your feet. Can it get any better? Oh, why yes it can!

There’s a ton of additional acts with them on tour that you can catch as well depending on the city you can see them in. They did not tread lightly with this array of artists. Their August 31st Oregon show has them with Shabazz Palaces. Then the Sept 2nd Seattle, WA show line up goes bananas! It’s got Lil Wayne, Phoenix, Ludacris, The Chainsmokers and more!! The Sept 15th and 16th show has Fall Out Boy, AWOLNATION and Janelle Monae in Atlanta (Yes, we can’t believe it either), and frankly we need to be at ALL of those shows because you know those dates are going to be insane!

They’ve also got a favorite band I (and a few co-workers I put on to them) have recently become a fangirl for, Lucius, on several dates as well. Shutter16 has covered Portugal before and they are amazing live so make sure you grab your tickets while you can or even better, try your luck with our giveaway!

Because you deserve such awesomeness in your life, we’re giving away tickets for the 9/18 Charlotte show, and what’s better than a great show for Free.99?! Nothing for the record so go ahead, comment and share this post on our Facebook page for your chance to win, and good luck!
