Guster and Dispatch Share the Stage for the First Time
Guster opened for Dispatch at Chicago’s UIC Pavilion last night. The show was originally slated to take place the outdoor Charter One Pavilion, but was moved inside at the last minute after weeks of poor weather slowed the amphitheater’s renovations.
Despite being associated together in many circles and sharing members of the same management team, last night’s show was actually the first time the two acts have played a show together. During Dispatch’s headlining set, the members of Guster also emerged for Dispatch’s hip-hop number “Cut It/Match It.” The song also included a bit of Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth.” Guster frontman Ryan Miller tweeted out after the gig, “I have a vague recollection of freestyle rapping in front of 8,000 people last night. #scotchyscotchscotch #ow.”
Opener Allen Stone and members of his band also sat in with Dispatch on the same song at Nashville, TN’s Ryman Auditorium on May 29.
Dispatch and Guster will share the stage again next weekend. The acts will perform at Mansfield, MA’s Comcast Center on Saturday.
