Tonight local Boston bands Dispatch and Guster come to the Comcast Center for the only show of the weekend. Whether you are going to the show or are just looking to avoid the traffic, Mansfield Patch has you covered with everything you need to know about this evening's rock concert!
All 16 lots will be open for this event starting at 3:00 p.m. All ticket-holders will be allowed access to the parking lots free of charge. For those interested in VIP parking, it is available for $40 but must be purchased ahead of time. Those with VIP parking are asked to arrive before the start of the show.
For those looking for a quicker exit, there are two privately owned lots across the street and next to the Comcast Center. Both lots charge $30 for parking.
Police do provide safe crossing for those parked across the street and the lot next door does have a direct and safe path into the Comcast Center.
2. Dispatch's Mansfield Debut
This will be Dispatch's first time performing at the Comcast Center. Guster returns to play the venue for the first time since 2007 when they performed at the Download Festival.
3. Dos and Don'ts
- There is no smoking allowed in the reserved seating section of the Comcast Center.
- You may take photos with your camera but flash photography, video or cameras with removable lens are not allowed.
- One unopened bottle of water may be brought in and food is allowed as long as it fits into a one gallon soft cooler.
4. Welcome Home
The show will be a homecoming of sorts for both bands which are from Boston. Members of Dispatch are mostly based in the Boston area by way of Vermont while Guster was formed when the band members met as freshmen at Tufts University in 1991.

The lots will open at 3:30 p.m. Traffic and delays around the area should be expected during the afternoon.
