The Postal Service Bringing Anniversary Tour to Santa Barbara Bowl

Nederlander Concerts will present The Postal Service plus special guest Big Freedia at the Santa Barbara Bowl at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 20. Tickets go on sale at 11 a.m. this Saturday, April 27.

After selling out more than a dozen shows and inspiring the largest crowds of both Coachella weekends, The Postal Service have added five new arena and amphitheater dates to their summer tour commemorating the 10th anniversary of Give Up!

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 The 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 Feb. 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.

Big Freedia, pronounced Big Free-dah, is an American musician known for work in the New Orleans genre of hip hop called bounce music. She has been credited with helping popularize the genre, which was largely underground since developing in the early 1990s.

Don’t miss your chance to see The Postal Service at the Santa Barbara Bowl. Tickets range from $38 to $51, plus applicable service charges. The Santa Barbara Bowl is located at 1122 N. Milpas St.

Tickets are available at all Ticketmaster outlets, including the Arlington Theatre, the Santa Barbara Bowl box office and Walmart. To charge by phone, call 800.745.3000. Click here to order online.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
