Give Up 10th Anniversary Tour Expanded To Seattle, Santa Barbara, San Diego & Los Angeles

Ticketing, Additional Info at

“‘Such Great Heights’… inspired the single biggest sing-along of the entire day.”–BILLBOARD

“The idea that music — big, larger than life music — can start in a bedroom and grow into a force that can move a field of 80,000 devout music fans made me want to weep for joy… the world will be singing along with the Postal Service for the summer.”–LOS ANGELES TIMES

“The Postal Service drew what appeared to be the largest crowd of the day to the main stage… Lewis powerfully complemented Tamborello’s skittering beats and synths and Gibbard’s wallflower vocals with angelic yet powerful singing, sinuous guitar playing, and overall charisma; at times, she and Gibbard would dance together like they were in an old Human League video, which proved quite charming.”–ROLLING STONE

In the wake of a rapturous response to an opening week of its 10th anniversary tour including two show-stopping Coachella sets (see above), The Postal Service has confirmed the addition of five new arena and amphitheater dates in Seattle, Santa Barbara, San Diego and Los Angeles.

The newest dates of the tour commemorating the recent release of  the Give Up Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition on Sub Pop are as follows: July 18 at the Key Arena in Seattle, July 20 at the Santa Barbara Bowl, July 21 at the San Diego State Open Air Theater and July 23 and 24 at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles. Tickets for the new dates will go on sale April 27, with the exception of San Diego, which goes on sale April 26.

The Postal Service  2013 anniversary tour is quite possibly the single most hotly anticipated reunion of the year, selling out theaters, clubs, amphitheaters and arenas the world over, including the Greek Theater in Berkeley and New York’s Barclays Center where second dates have been added by popular demand. Other upcoming dates that have completely sold out in advance now include Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver, London, Manchester, Detroit, Atlanta, Boise, Orlando, Kansas City, Columbus, and more sure to come.

The 10th anniversary dates reunite Postal Service principals Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello with Jenny Lewis, who appeared on the original 2003 album and tour. Lewis also sings on the two new songs on Give Up (Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition). Laura Burhenn (Mynabirds, Bright Eyes) rounds out the 2013 touring lineup.

Give Up was certified platinum last year just shy of 10 years from its original February 9, 2003 release. Led by the single ”Such Great Heights,” the landmark album is, after Nirvana’s Bleach, the second-biggest selling album in Sub Pop’s 25-year history.
