The Postal Service Comments On Unique Opening Act

The Postal Service’s Ben Gibbard recently opened up about the supporting act on the band’s tour, called Big Freedia. The music has been catching many fans of TPS off guard and finally Gibbard was left to address the choice of bringing them on tour.

The incongruous, provocative pairing was deliberate. Postal Service leader and Seattle music luminary Ben Gibbard told me in an interview last week, he chose the opener because, ‘I love Big Freedia’s music and I’m really excited to see how people react to it.’

In the normally neutral space of KeyArena, audience members were irritated, seemed to be uncomfortable with Freedia’s brand of sexual expression and questioned whether the performance was ‘real music.’

Men in the stands conspicuously proclaimed their own heterosexuality, and in general the response was uneasy.
