fujirockexpress.net has posted a positive review of doves Friday set at Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival.
Doves brought their mellow Brit rock to the Green Stage on Friday afternoon, along with some mellow weather.They played a cross section of tunes from Some Cities and The Last Broadcast and they trotted out “Kingdom Of Rust” from their new album of the same name about half way through. When they started, a light mist of rain shrouded the Green Stage, but as they got into the middle of their set and Jimi Goodwin said thanks to that rain and that “we all need a little rain in our life, it makes things beautiful” and suddenly it stopped. The sky brightened, and warm and surprisingly dry breeze brought the smiles out. Rain ponchos and caps came off, people dance a little more, and the kids started playing.
If you can read Japanese, you can read about doves views on Fuji Rock and who they plan on seeing, at bounce.com before leaving for Australia here.
