Death Cab For Cutie & Postal Service tour 2023: How to buy tickets

Forget 2023 — let’s party like it’s 2003.

Indie rock royalty Death Cab For Cutie and The Postal Service just announced a massive tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of their respective albums “Transatlanticism” and “Give Up,” where they’ll play both records in full at each gig.

This isn’t your typical co-headlining tour, though.

That’s because Ben Gibbard is the lead singer for both groups and will work overtime at all shows, taking the mic for the Death Cab AND Postal Service portions of each evening.

You read that right.

Each show will have a double helping of Gibbard.

Then, as a cherry on top, Postal Service member turned superstar, Jenny Lewis confirmed she’ll be joining the tour as well on Instagram.

“Can’t wait to join Ben & Jimmy Taborello next fall to play these amazing songs again & hear my fave Death Cab album live! BLESS!”

Plus, New York scene kids of past and present, we come bearing even more good news— the tour will swoop into Madison Square Garden on Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Now, if you’re as excited as we are and can’t wait until tickets officially go on sale, you can snag seats for the show closest to you as early as today.

While inventory isn’t available on Ticketmaster until Friday, Dec. 16, folks who want to ensure they have tickets ahead of time can go ahead and purchase on Vivid Seats before seats are officially on sale.

Vivid Seats is a secondary market ticketing platform, and prices may be higher or lower than face value, depending on demand.

They have a 100% buyer guarantee that states your transaction will be safe and secure and will be delivered before the event.

The Postal Service news

While Death Cab For Cutie has remained active in the 20 years since “Transatlanticism” made waves in the indie music world, The Postal Service has remained relatively quiet post- “Give Up.”

However, just like the actual US Postal Service, The Postal Service always deliver never “Give Up”— even if it takes a decade to do so.

Most recently, the trio that brought the world “Such Great Heights” and “We Will Become Silhouettes” conducted a tenth anniversary tour in 2013.

These upcoming concerts will be the band’s first since that 37-show run.

Gibbard is more than excited to revisit some of his greatest hits too.

“I know for a fact I will never have a year again like 2003,” Gibbard said in a press release. “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.”

A chills-inducing 30-second tour trailer that beautifully mashes up “Such Great Heights” and title track “Transatlanticism” can be seen and heard below.
