lincoln Lincoln Live Review today put up a positive review of the Lincoln Engine Shed show, though apparently the crowd were a bit crap..

In recent shows the Doves have been kicking their set list with ‘Jetstream’ but tonight is different, tonight is gearing up for the big one and they kick off with a perfect rendition of ‘House Of Mirrors’ flowed quickly through into ‘Caught By The River’ showcasing that the band are equally comfortable with both their new and old material. Sadly it seems that the crowd is somewhat less enthusiastic, and yet the band still carry on with hit after a hit (and with that I’m not saying a no1, just a quality tune). ‘Pounding’ sounds so immense and then ’10:03′ gives Jimi Goodwin a chance to bellow his vocals out over the music, which sounds effortless.

Yet there is still nothing from the subdued Lincoln crowd, but that doesn’t seem to deter this Manc trio as they finish off their set with a bit of a surprise in the shape of ‘The Cedar Room’ and after this lack luster reaction from the crowd you wonder if the Jimi and friends are actually going to come back and do the encore?

Lincoln Photos

BBC Lincolnshire has put up a wee gallay from the Lincoln Shed gig. Pictures were taken by Carl Spring.

The set played was the same as Leamington Spa with the encore starting with Northenden, confirmed by gristy over at doves board.

Also on the board, Baldilocks reports that a wee interview with the band done before the Leeds Cockpit gig will air next Monday on NME radio sometime between 7-11pm.

Next stop, the final hurrah tonight at Manchester Central! Should be an electric night. If your going along, have a great time!

Lincoln & Leamington Spa Support
