Manchester Confidential reviewed the show at their website:

“Thanks for sticking with us all these years,” says Jimi Goodwin, halfway through a blistering underground set, which veered through a back catalogue spanning more than ten years. “This is The Last Broadcast.”

Doves are the people’s band. ‘There Goes The Fear’ – the track that will probably end up defining Doves’ career when they finally do decide to call time – had the whole room singing during the encore.

That’s the song, of course, and title of the band’s 2002 album. But Doves (click here for our 2009 interview with them) played imperiously with the will they/won’t they rumours all night.

“This is our last gig,” teased guitarist Jez Williams early in the set, with a wry smile. “Is it?” asked Goodwin. “I don’t know. I’m normally speechless.”

Band and crowd were in fine voice though, and both managed to keep plenty of energy in the room, despite a 1am stage entrance and a set that lasted almost two hours.
