A few months ago, the Dispatch website became quite active for the first time in almost 3 years. A mysterious countdown appeared on the website which turned out to be for the announcement of 6, now 8 concert dates scattered around the U.S.
In 2004, Dispatch played their final show in Boston at Hatch Shell. The show was intended to have in the range of 10-30 thousand. It is estimated that over 100 000 people showed up for the event. In 2007, Dispatch came back for a charity concert entitled ‘Zimbabwe’ at Madison Square Garden, selling out its tickets almost immediately after going on sale.
The 2011 concerts are as follows:
June 3- Morrison, Colorado at Red Rocks (Just Added)
June 4- Morrison, Colorado at Red Rocks
June 8- Chicago, Illinois at Millenium Park
June 11- Berkeley, California at Greek Theatre
June 18- Harrison, New Jersey at Red Bull Arena
June 21- Atlanta, Georgia at Chastain Park
June 24- Boston, Massachusetts at TD Garden (Just Added)
June 25- Boston, Massachusetts at TD Garden
Since their break-up in 2004, members of Dispatch have done a few separate acts such as State Radio as well as solo careers. With these new shows, Dispatch has also recently said that they will be coming out with a new album sometime during the year.
