V2010 Round Up

Picture by gigwise.com

A few pics of Doves appearance at V Festival Weston Park. Sadly from reviews at Doves board it sounds as if Jimi wasn’t sounding himself first night.

According to the NME, Jimi also didn’t have the best of times at the second set in Chelmsford thanks to some twats..

Doves played their “last festival for quite sometime” on the final day of the 2010 V Festival (August 22) – though it was marred after a section of the audience who appeared to upset the band.

Performing on the 4Music Stage, the group played a career-spanning set, though midway Jimi Goodwin was antagonized by something in the crowd apparently directed at him.

“Real classy shit, yeah?” he angrily asked part of the audience, though it was unclear what had upset him. “You think you’re shitting me? I’m going to have to come out there and kick the shit out of you, and I mean it, yeah!”

The sour note came in an otherwise upbeat set from the Manchester three-piece, who bantered with the crowd throughout the slot, often asking “Essex how ya doing?” in a comedy southern accent.

Setlist from Chelmsford:

Push Me On
Winter Hill
Kingdom Of Rust
Black & White Town
Caught By The River
There Goes The Fear

Fans posting on Doves facebook wall confirmed that it was a bunch of idiots throwing bottles at the stage, some of which had hit fans in the front rows! What a disgrace. Sadly its not the first time this has happened at V. Hopefully those of you affected were able to enjoy Doves one last time. Only a couple more gigs left (assuming nothing else is added..) then that’s it for a wee while for Doves.

With that, I expect the blog will take some time out too. Will take a wee rest, then spring back to life when one of the talked about side projects surfaces.
