Massive Attack and Portishead are teaming up for a charity gig in BRISTOL.

The two bands will appear live at the Bristol Academy (February 19) at a fund raising concert in aid of the Tsunami crisis.

Organisers say that the concert will be a “unique performance”, and will feature collaborations on the night. This is also the first time the two bands have shared a stage, and a very rare performance from Portishead, who haven’t released a studio album since 1997.

More very special guests are to be announced shortly.

All proceeds from will go to Oxfam, who are organising water and sanitation relief in the crisis area.

Ticket details will be announced next week, although NME.COM understands discussions are underway to webcast the gig. A website has been set up at [url=]crisisinasia.com.
