After a difficult tour of Europe—some equipment was lost, some equipment was stolen (along with all their tour earnings), a fan tragically went missingPortugal.The Man has returned to the States. All things considered, the band is in excellent spirits, and eager to perform their two-night stand at Doug Fir (December 18th & 19th) and start work on a new album. Back before their European trip fell under that mysterious curse—they should have never run over that old Romanian gypsy woman with their tour van—the band performed an acoustic version of "People Say" on the floor of KIFF, a venue in Aarau, Switzerland.
