Throughout its existence, Dispatch has thrived on the road. When the band called it quits in 2004, their farewell show at the Hatch Shell in Boston drew 110,000 fans from around the world, making it one of the largest independent music events in history. In 2007 the band briefly reunited, performing 3 sold out shows at at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. In 2009, the band would go on to perform an all-acoustic show, held at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., at the request of Zimbabwe’s Prime Minister, Morgan Tsvangirai.
In June 2011, Dispatch officially regrouped for a sold-out U.S. tour that included three shows at the TD Garden Arena in Boston, three shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, and the first-ever concert at New Jersey’s Red Bull Arena. 2012 and 2013 saw Dispatch on the road again supporting their first full-length studio album since 2000, Circles Around The Sun, with shows across North America and Europe.
On July 10th and 11th 2015, seven years after DISPATCH became the first indie band to sell out Madison Square Garden, the trio returned to the legendary venue for “DISPATCH: HUNGER,” an event geared towards raising awareness about the issue of hunger in the United States while also coordinating efforts to work against hunger in New York City on a local level.
Currently, the band is working on a new studio album.
