Roots rockers Dispatch will be heading out on their first ever acoustic tour late next month, which will run across North America starting on Nov. 25 in Vancouver. Announced last month, the folk-rock group from New England will continue what has already been a busy 2017, with 19 unplugged concerts across the U.S. and Canada before wrapping on Dec. 20.
News of the upcoming tour follows their summer spent on the road alongside Guster, which included a show at New York’s Forest Hills Stadium back on July 6. Their summer tour was mostly in promotion of their sixth full-length studio album, America, Location 12. The new LP was their first since 2012’s Circles Around the Sun, but saw them promoting and touring without Pete Heimbold, who took a leave of absence from the band to take care of his mental health.
“We’ve heard requests for an acoustic tour over the years so we're returning to our roots and visiting some of the best small venues across the country, most of which we’ve never played before,” the band said about the upcoming run on their website.
Since this will be the first time they’ve ever left home together with only their acoustic instruments in hand, it’s only fitting that they wrap their month-long trek with three shows at the Paradise Rock Club in their headquarters of Boston, MA. They’ll close out the tour a night later at Baltimore’s Rams Head Live! on Dec. 20, just in time for the holidays.
The tour will also feature the band performing two sets each night. Breaking the night into two different performances certainly gives the veteran group some creative flexibility for how they’d like to make each concert a special and intimate experience for the fans.
Tickets for select shows on their upcoming run will be going on sale starting this Friday, Oct. 13, and can be purchased by clicking here.
