The Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie Unveil Additional UK & EU Dates For “Give Up Transatlanticism” Tour

February 16, 2024

THE POSTAL SERVICE + DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE EXTEND GROUNDBREAKING, CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED 20TH ANNIVERSARY CO-HEADLINE TOUR

NEW UK & EU DATES FOLLOW 2023 ‘GIVE UP TRANSATLANTICISM’ TOUR – ATTENDED BY OVER A QUARTER-MILLION FANS

The Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie have unveiled additional UK   & EU dates for their landmark 20th anniversary co-headline ‘Give Up Transatlanticism’ tour. Tickets for today’s newly announced shows in Glasgow, Cardiff and Barcelona will be available via artist presale at 9am GMT on Wednesday 21st February and general sale at 9am GMT on Friday 23rd February. Sign up for early access to tickets at giveuptransatlanticismtour.com.

These three new shows accompany the previously announced dates at London’s All Points East on 25th August 2024 and Meo Kalorama in Lisbon, Portugal. Full dates outlined below. Support at the Glasgow and Cardiff dates comes from Teenage Fanclub.

The extension comes in response to massive demand from fans, following the joint tour’s critically acclaimed and wildly-successful 2023 dates. That run was entirely sold-out and included back-to-back shows at NYC’s Madison Square Gardenthree nights at LA’s Hollywood Bowl, and marquee dates in many other major cities – bringing 250k+ fans together at iconic arenas and amphitheaters across the US.

This extraordinary live run celebrates the 20th anniversaries of each band’s seminal 2003 album, The Postal Service’s RIAA Platinum-certified Give Up and Death Cab for Cutie’s RIAA Platinum-certified breakthrough fourth studio LP Transatlanticism – two classics released within a mere eight months of one another, and created with a total recording budget of just $20k.

Benjamin Gibbard, co-founder of both bands, will continue to pull double duty on the 2024 dates, performing Give Up and Transatlanticism in full alongside his respective bandmates. “Few musicians have released two culture-shifting records in the span of a single year,” Pitchfork proclaimed within their glowing review of this fall’s first MSG show, “and even less have done it with two different musical outfits.”

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.” – Benjamin Gibbard

The Postal Service is comprised of Gibbard, Jimmy Tamborello, and Jenny Lewis; Death Cab for Cutie is comprised of Gibbard, Nick HarmerDave DepperZac Rae, and Jason McGerr.
