The Postal Service & Death Cab for Cutie announce ‘Give Up’ & ‘Transatlanticism’ anniversary tour
2023 marks the 20th anniversary of Death Cab For Cutie's classic album Transatlanticism and The Postal Service's trailblazing Give Up. Ahead of the new year, the bands have announced a joint tour playing both albums in full. These will be Ben Gibbard, Jimmy Tamborello, and Jenny Lewis' first The Postal Service shows since their tenth anniversary tour for Give Up in 2013, and Gibbard says, "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."
Shows run through September and October of 2023 in the US, wrapping up with a show at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl on October 13. See all dates below.
The NYC show is at Madison Square Garden on September 20. You can register to access tickets early for the MSG show; the presale begins Wednesday, December 14 at 10 AM EST. Tickets to all dates go on sale to the general public Friday, December 16 at 10 AM.
Death Cab resume their tour supporting this year's Asphalt Meadows in January, including a North American leg with Momma, Europe and UK shows with Slow Pulp, and more North American shows with Lomelda.
