About the concert...

On July 13-15, 2007, Boston-based roots-rock outfit DISPATCH reunited for DISPATCH: ZIMBABWE, three sold-out concerts at New York's famed Madison Square Garden arena. The weekend represented the bands' first shows since their epic farewell concert in Boston over the summer of 2004. This time, DISPATCH reunited to raise funds and awareness for poverty stricken Zimbabwe.

The shows, all selling-out on the onsale (making DISPATCH the first independent band in history to headline, no-less sell out three nights at Madison Square Garden), raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to fight disease, devistation, and social injustice in the country of Zimbabwe. The funds raised will support the bands' newly formed Dispatch Foundation, specifically earmarked for the Foundations' work in Zimbabwe. Click here for the official website for this concert.
