How can I possible go to sleep after seeing one of my favourite bands? DOVES played at The Capitol, Perth, only a few hours ago and I want to write this while I still have the fresh buzz.
When Jimi Goodwin came out from the little red curtains, I thought my heart would explode. What an amazing voice! When he played a solo acoustic “Northenden” I was absolutely hypnotized. I don’t think I have ever been to a show when I wasn’t shoved around all night by some crazy drunk fan. Civilized people at concerts are quite new to me so if anyone is reading this that was there earlier tonight, thank you very much for not spilling your drink on me or bruising my feet!
Due to popular demand, doves Melbourne show has been moved from the Billboard to the Palace Theatre. The Billboard show had long since sold out. The change of venue means more tickets are available now. Get them at ticketek

26 Jul – Byron Bay, Splendour In The Grass

Four years after they last wowed us, Mancunian mainstays Doves are headed back to Australia. FasterLouder is chuffed to be on board for this winter tour –which might even include a “yet to be announced appearance at a certain sold-out festival”.
The impetus for the return visit is Doves’ fourth (and arguably best) album Kingdom of Rust, described by FL’s reviewer as “demonstrative of a band at its peak”. They’ve twice played Splendour In The Grass, in 2002 and 2005, earning enraptured reports both times. While undoubtedly special at a festival, the trio’s indie-rock charms will only be magnified in a theatre setting.
Doves play these shows in winter, proudly presented by FasterLouder. Tickets on sale 9.00am Thursday 4 June.
Tuesday 28 July –Billboard, Melbourne (Tickets on qjump )
Thursday 30 July –Metro Theatre, Sydney
Saturday 1 August –Capitol, Perth
