Detroit Review

Setlist same as Chicago the night before

Media Junkie blog has posted a very positive review of the Detroit show. It was the writer’s first doves show:

Of course, the highlight of the evening was the main event. Coming out to a video of airplanes flying overhead, Doves kicked off their set in the same way their newest album begins with “Jetstream”. Guitarist Jez Williams, twin brother of drummer Andy, and bassist/co-lead singer Jimi Goodwin both sounded fantastic, and the sound at the Majestic carried out over the audience and into the high ceiling clearly.

Unfortunately, being as unfamiliar with their earlier work as I was, I was unable to keep any semblance of an accurate setlist. I can only list several of the songs they played, including “The Outsiders”, “The Greatest Denier” (my personal favorite track from Kingdom of Rust), and several others from the new record.

Ticketmaster have the New York City show listed. Tickets . Pre-sale next Wednesday 10am. Password: Jetstream

Detroit ticket info: $19.50/$20 ALL AGES SHOW.

Doves have been confirmed to play the Irish Oxegen festival. Same weekend as T in the Park, where I also expect doves will perform. Just awaiting confirmation.

Thanks for all the feedback so far. Its been a great start, its only going to get busier as the album release draws nearer. Also the small matter of the tour starting next week.

Here’s a wee gem from the Sub Sub days. Released back in 1995 on the ‘From Manchester With’ compilation.
