The tour starts on September 8, 2023 in Portland, Maine and will hit cities like Boston, Detroit, and New York before wrapping up at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl on October 13.
Gibbard said in a statement, “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.”
