Awaiting Doves arrival on stage. Picture by @michaelsjin
Doves returned to the live stage today for the filming of the new C4 music show Evo Music Rooms. They played the new single Andalucia (twice) as you would expect. They also did Black And White Town. Cheers to Jagger at doves board for the info. The show airs next Friday on C4 in the UK.
You may have noticed the new look doves.net went live today. I think you will agree it looks great. Don’t think the offish site has looked that good in years. If you haven’t already ordered the best of album, then head over to the bonus section of the site. Assuming you have one of the four studio albums on CD, just fire that into the CD drive let the site do its magic and you will get two quid off the Best Of.
If you have nowt going on Saturday afternoon, switch on BBC Radio 2 at 2pm to hear Doves play a couple tracks live for Dermot O’Leary.
I think that’s it for now, though I probably forgot something. More tomorrow no doubt!

There will also be coverage on the Red Button, with build up from this Saturday. Then footage from the gig will be up til October 31st. If there are any changes I will do my best to flag them up. So get those recorders out.. I will not be posting video/audio up for download or any links to other sites for download. There is always the possibility this could be released.
Expect full coverage on the blog! I have switched my work days to be able to hear/blog the show. Should be a good day/night wherever you are!
