Glastonbury News

As previously reported, doves will play the John Peel Tent at this year’s Glastonbury festival. Doves will headline on the Friday night (June 26th). There was talk of doves performing more than once at the festival. Will post if we hear any more on that.

Newcastle based isolationist.co.uk caught up with Jimi, at the recent Newcastle show. Interesting, if a rather short interview. Once again, the talk is of a quicker follow up to Kingdom Of Rust:

Are you planning on returning to the barn after the tour?
Yeah, we want to make sure the next record’s out much faster because this one took over four fucking years. At the moment our mate Cherry Ghost is using it, if he hadn’t kicked us out we’d probably still be in there now. Ha ha. But yeah, his stuff’s sounding good. How he won a f****ing Ivor Novello and then got dropped is anyone’s guess.

As well as providing support tonight in San Diego, Pop Noir will also be supporting tomorrow at the Anaheim show. doves management, have said that they were offered the support slot because of the link to Steve McGarry (The Pop Noir twins are Steve McGarry’s sons) and Rob Gretton. Tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of Rob’s passing. RIP!

Review Of Newcastle O2 Academy Show

Newcastle’s Sunday Sun newspaper, yesterday published a short review of Doves’ recent show at the city’s O2 Academy.

Sunday Sun

IT was a shaky start for Doves at Newcastle’s O2 Academy, but the Manchester indie band certainly didn’t fail to impress.

Launching into their opening song Jetstream, technical problems forced them to stop, dash off stage and start the whole thing again.

But no one cared and the band careered through their finest past hits, as well as plenty from their new album, Kingdom of Rust.

Northumbria Uni, Newcastle

Northumbria Uni, Newcastle, November 18th 2002

Notes: Taken from my old gig book. I wrote at the time: Great first show of the UK winter tour. Was late getting started as the doors were not open til just before 8pm. Still remember how cold it was lining up!! Disaster almost occurred at the end when Jimi seemed to gester to somebody in the audience if they wanted his bass guitar, he about gave it away til some rodie stopped him! Pretty funny. Great show.

Support: The Delgados
