Celebrating Two Decades of Musical Excellence

This tour is not just any tour. It marks the 20th anniversary of two iconic albums: Give Up and Transatlanticism. Benjamin Gibbard, the frontman for both bands, expressed his sentiments about the tour, stating, “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.”
