This weekend saw The Postal Service performing at Lollapalooza and then at The Metro in Chicago. Benjamin Gibbard announced, sadly, that these two performances would be their last. He took to Twitter following the band's final show, saying:
Thanks to everyone who came and saw @PostalService this spring/summer. It meant the world to us. And with that, we are closed for business.— Benjamin Gibbard (@Gibbstack) August 5, 2013
It's saddening, knowing it was such a short-lived reunion. Yet, if you managed to see them live at some point this year, it was incredible to see Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello and Jenny Lewis together again. Below, watch them perform "Such Great Heights" and "The District Sleeps Alone Tonight" during their final show at The Metro.
