The Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie have announced plans for a landmark 20th anniversary co-headline North American tour. The live run will see both groups performing their 2003 albums in full – The Postal Service’s Give Up and Death Cab for Cutie’s fourth studio LP Transatlanticism.
Benjamin Gibbard, the co-founder of both bands, will pull double duty throughout the tour, performing with The Postal Service – comprised of Gibbard, Jimmy Tamborello, and Jenny Lewis – as well as with Death Cab for Cutie (alongside Nick Harmer, Dave Depper, Zac Rae, and Jason McGerr).
“I know for a fact I will never have a year again like 2003. The Postal Service record came out, Transatlanticism came out. These two records will be on my tombstone, and I’m totally fine with that. I’ve never had a more creatively inspired year,” said Gibbard.
The run will kick off September 8, 2023 at Cross Insurance Arena in Portland, ME and continue through mid-October, with highlights including shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, Berkeley, CA’s Greek Theatre, and Los Angeles, CA’s Hollywood Bowl.
Pre-sales begin Wednesday, December 14th at 10 am (local) and continue through Thursday, December 15 at 10 pm (local). Sign-up for early access to tickets here. For the Hollywood Bowl show, American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Tuesday, December 13th at 10am PT through Thursday, December 15th at 10pm PT.
All remaining tickets will be released to the general public on Friday, December 16th at 10 am (local). For complete details and ticket information, please visit postalservicemusic.net or www.deathcabforcutie.com.
The upcoming tour will mark the first live performances from The Postal Service in over a decade, following 2013’s 10-year anniversary reunion tour for Give Up.
Ahead of the dates with The Postal Service, Death Cab for Cutie will continue their Asphalt Meadows world tour in January 2023, traversing North America, Europe, and the UK through June, with support from Momma, Slow Pulp, and Lomelda on select dates. This follows their headline tour this past Fall at venues including Forest Hills (NYC) and The Greek Theatre (LA).
