Photo credit: Brian Tamborello

Enter our contest for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the Postal Service at the Barclays Center in New York City on June 15th.

From their press release, "In the wake of a rapturous response to an opening week of its 10th anniversary tour including two show-stopping Coachella sets (see above), the Postal Service has confirmed the addition of five new arena and amphitheater dates in Seattle, Santa Barbara, San Diego and Los Angeles". The Postal Service begin their summer tour this weekend with dates in Europe before returning to the US (full dates are below). When they reach New York, they'll be playing two shows at the Barclays Center; the first on June 14th is sold out already but we've got a pair of tickets for you to see them on June 15th. We'd rather you not dally and miss the chance to see the band (who knows when they'll tour again?) so you should probably head over to Ticketmaster and pick up tickets now. But if you're patient, and lucky, you can use the widget below to enter the contest for tickets to the second NYC show!
