Dispatch To Return To Madison Square Garden

MSG Entertainment announced today that DISPATCH, joined by special guest the John Butler Trio, will return to the stage at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, July 11, 2015 at 8:00PM for “DISPATCH: HUNGER,” an event geared to shine a light on the issue of hunger in the United States. DISPATCH made their Madison Square Garden debut in 2007 for a similar event, “DISPATCH: ZIMBABWE,” where they became the first independent band in history to not only headline the legendary venue, but also sell out three consecutive nights. This year, a limited time Chase Advance Ticket sale will be available for Chase credit or debit purchases starting Friday, January 16, 2015 at 12:00PM through Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 10:00PM while supplies last. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 23, 2015 at 12:00PM. Madison Square Garden will be the only place to see DISPATCH in North America in 2015.

DISPATCH members Brad Corrigan, Chad Stokes and Pete Francis met in college, formed a band, and with no radio airplay, major-label support, or significant press coverage, quickly became one of the biggest draws on the live music scene. Though DISPATCH hadn’t released a full-length album since 2000 and officially called it quits in 2004, their music continued to capture the hearts and minds of new generations of rock fans through pure word-of-mouth.

DISPATCH has been known to use their platform – the stage - to raise awareness for humanitarian issues, including fundraising for the atrocities happening in Zimbabwe in 2007 and through their Amplifying Education campaign in 2011-2013. This time the band’s goal of awareness remains the same, which is to draw attention to the issue of hunger in the United States.

Tickets are available via a Chase Advance Ticket sale Friday, January 16, 2015 at 12:00PM through Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 10:00PM, and to the general public on Friday, January 23, 2015 at 12:00PM through Ticketmaster Charge By Phone (1-866-858-0008) and all Ticketmaster Outlets. Tickets will also be available in person at MSG, Radio City Music Hall and the Beacon Theatre Box Offices beginning Saturday, January 24, 2015.
