The Postal Service have added 17 more dates to their headlining reunion tour, extending their spring outing into summer after quickly selling out a slew of dates in the U.S. and Europe, including Brooklyn's Barclays Center. A second Barclays show has been added for June 15th, and the band will also hit venues including Red Rocks in Morrison, Colorado; Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland; and the Greek Theater in Berkeley.
Pre-sale for the new dates – which are listed below – will be available directly from the Postal Service and will start February 20th at 10 a.m. local venue time (except for the shows in Toronto, Columbia and Vancouver, which begin February 25th, March 6th and April 3rd respectively).
The trek marks the Postal Service's first tour in a decade, and will also find them playing festivals like Coachella, Barcelona's Primavera Sound and Sasquatch at the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington. The band will also release a 10th anniversary deluxe reissue of their seminal LP, Give Up, on April 9th on Sub Pop. The band last week posted a previously unreleased track, "A Tattered Line of String," which will appear on the reissue.

I guessed they would add more dates in the summer in the last post! Also helped that Ben Gibbard tweeted more dates would be added. I'm very glad they are coming to the Greek and not doing OSL or something like that. Also, I feel like this def cuts out any tiny chance of Rilo Kiley going on tour again to promote "rkives".
Remember to look for any presales on their official website or elsewhere!
