Set for a January 29, 2008 DVD release through self-owned Bomber Records (in partnership with AEG Network Live and VDI Entertainment), Dispatch: Zimbabwe - Live at Madison Square Garden was directed by renowned photographer Danny Clinch and filmed around the band's three-night sold out run at New York's legendary Madison Square Garden in July.
The release will include two hours of live concert footage and behind the
scenes interviews plus an exclusive 30-minute documentary on the
devastation in the African country. Dispatch: Zimbabwe - Live at
Madison Square Garden will be sold in eco-friendly recycled packaging and come with a ten-song companion CD of the band's favorite performances from the reunion dates.

Dispatch became pioneers, making their reputation largely by touring, word-of-mouth and file sharing. The three nights at MSG, marked the band's first appearances together since their 2004 farewell show, which drew more than 110,000 fans from 25 countries, making it the largest independent music event in history. Coming together for a cause that's greater than anything that drew them apart, Dispatch:
Zimbabwe not only raised funds to alleviate suffering in Zimbabwe, but also marked the first time an independent band sold out Madison Square Garden.
