Q Nomination

Doves have been shortlisted for the 2019 Best Live Performance Award by Q Magazine for the Teenage Cancer Trust concert at the Royal Albert Hall. Voting is opening through October 7th via this link.

Here’s a wee catch up on Doves set at Gunnersville via the festival website. It was a great festival, well organised. I certainly had a blast! Doves were on top form, here’s a cracking video from the evening (not mine)..

That’s it!

Doves wrapped up their live return last night at Gunnersbury Park, London. The setlist was the same as Bingley the weekend before. Despite the short set time, band managed to squeeze in all the tracks you’d want to hear.

The band seemed well into it, as were the crowd. The band have gone on record to say the next live gig will be in support of a new album. Exciting times ahead..

Next stop, Gunnersville in London.

Gunnersville Last Orders

Despite some ticket agencies apparently saying no tickets remain. Tickets are very much available to purchase. Tickets are £35 plus booking fee. Not bad for a full Doves set plus Echo & The Bunnymen, Badly Drawn Boy and the new band White Flowers who happen to have their new record produced by Jez!

Purchase tickets here.

This is being billed as Doves last gig of the year. As they have said on social media of late, Doves head back into the studio to finish off their next album.

Hull Review

The indie masterplan have posted a cracking review of the recent Hull gig.

A big moment during a Doves gig is when guitarist Jez Williams steps up to vocal duties, this happened during the uplifting track ‘Words’. Jez’s vocals are a little higher and less bassy than Jimi’s, and this a great weapon to have in the arsenal.

Victorious Festival

No setlist for this one yet, band started with Snowden, then Rise. Also played were Black & White Town, Kingdom of Rust, Pounding, The Cedar Room & The Fear. A wee media review is up at the Daily Echo.

Friday  also saw Manchester-born band Doves on the main stage and what could be the start of the last heatwave of summer.

Doves frontman Jimi Goodwin was momentarily overwhelmed with their reception at Victorious. “My cup overflows with love for you,” he joked after taking a second look at the huge Southsea Common crowd.

But perhaps he should not have been surprised. This band, with twin brothers Jez and Andy Williams on guitar and drums respectively, were huge in the first decade of this century, clocking up two number one albums, The Last Broadcast and Lost Souls, and supporting Oasis at Wembley.

Even now, their hit singles Black and White Town, Pounding and Here Comes The Fear are still on regular rotation on Radio X.  

Hull Setlist

Doves played Zebedee’s Yard in the heart of Hull city centre this evening. Before Space face, Jimi gave a shout out to the Doves forum, thanks to his ‘chance’ meeting with some of the forum regulars at a local gin bar earlier in the day.

Join the shenanigans on the current Doves forum which is now connected to Doves official facebook page here. The spirit of the old Doves web forum which has been around since early 2000 lives on! Feel free to post yer snaps from the gig or any Doves gig!

To Hull and back

Next up for Doves is Victorious festival in Portsmouth tomorrow (Friday night) for a short 45 minute set from 6:30pm, on just before The Specials. Give us a shout if your going via email, the forum or tweet @dovesmusicblog
