…the Manchester trio played NYC’s multi-leveled Terminal 5 last night, and not only did they play it, they sold it out, at $37 per ticket, no less. The fact it was their first local show in four years surely helped, but the resounding success of their layered, atmospheric indie rock remains: Doves are a force to be reckoned with.

The encore, which included the melancholy ‘Last Broadcast’ and the sweet lullaby-like ‘There Goes the Fear’, kept people riveted until the very last moments… and made for some very clogged exits at the end of the night, as no one appears to have been able to sneak away early from the gorgeously hypnotic set.

The Manhattan-based Sentimentalist Magazine has also posted a short review of the N.Y.C. show…

At one point, Goodwin, obviously warmed by the fans’ thunderous applause, says, “You’re so f***in’ kind! We don’t deserve it, really!”

Banter was all around, as Goodwin seemed ever-so-grateful to his New Yorkers, interrupting one of the more solemn songs to joke about having a vodka tonic with the rest of us.

New York City Reviews

While this would not rank among my Top 5 Doves gigs, it needs to be pointed out that these guys are the most consistent live performers I’ve seen while I’ve been blogger. You know you’re going to get an aural and visual assault of emotions. Sometimes, in those rare moments, you just forget everything in the outside world and you submit yourself to their music and live show.

When you see a band 11 times in nine years, there is plenty you can count on. First, it’s all the hits we love from their previous three albums. Although “Catch the Sun” has been vanish from their setlist since 2003

So count these dudes among those beating U2 at their own game in the last decade or so, i.e. the Soaring, Grandiose, Unapologetically Bombastic Arena Rock game, the sort of anthemic, overdriven guitar rock that’s actually a pretty good fit for an airport terminal. Every song an epic, every chorus a budding soccer-stadium sing-a-long. Except Doves are (relatively) unassuming about it, affable and casual Brits who take their time (their new Kingdom of Rust was nearly a half-decade in the making) and don’t have much in the way of an agenda

Fresh from taping a performance for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, UK indie-rock trio Doves packed the house in many ways last night at Terminal 5—first of which was filling the venue to the brim with fans. What the group lacked in physical presence (although they play with a fourth member on tour) they absolutely made up for in aural presence. Not a note was spared from the first few rows of people packed tightly against the metal barrier up to the crowded VIP balcony on the third floor in the back.

For an early review, check out Hope Gilmore’s review:

I was surprised by how nice the venue was, especially for being so far on the West Side of Manhattan. They showed videos throughout the whole show on a big screen behind them, it was more entertaining than some shows that just shine bright lights or show swirlies on a screen the whole time. They came out for an encore after perhaps 3 minutes of clapping. I’d guess the audience was about 2,000 people maybe, give or take a thousand, kidding…probably 2,000.
