Pete Francis Will 'Dispatch' On His Solo Tour

NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Pete Francis began his career with the band Dispatch. Over a ten year run, the three members of Dispatch released four studio albums, a live CD, and a DVD under their own label.

Dispatch gained dedicated fans without the assistance of a major record label and became pioneers in the music industry, playing to capacity crowds at major venues across the country and selling more than 600,000 albums.

In 2004 Dispatch celebrated a remarkable eight-year run by performing a farewell show in Boston, MA. Over 110,000 fans were in attendance, making it the largest independent music event in history. Three years later, the band reunited at Madison Square Garden in New York City playing three sold-out nights benefiting charities to combat famine, disease, and social injustice in Zimbabwe. They made history once again as the first independent band to headline the Garden.

Pete Francis is now touring solo in support of his new album ‘Iron Sea and the Cavalry.’
