The crowd at Delamere Forest

I usually backdate reviews/picture galleys of shows from a while back. But these photos taken by Alice at the Delamere deserve to be seen by you all. To view the full gallery click here.

I suspect news is going to be thin on the ground over the coming weeks, unless we get any new shows announced. So if you have pictures/reviews etc from past shows, let us know and we’ll put them up for all to see.

Sydney #2 Review & Setlist

For more pictures of doves second night at the Sydney Metro, visit the fastlouder gallery here.

To show we are not completely biased, here is a not so glowing review of the second Sydney show.

I was a bit letdown that the band didn’t delve into any of Kingdom Of Rust’s second half. Spellbound and Compulsion in particular would have been welcome, especially considering some of the other new songs didn’t quite hit the highs they do on the record (I’m looking at you, The Outsiders). Having said that, Kingdom of Rust was absolutely fantastic. Delivered with passion by the band, it was greeted by the crowd as if it was an old classic.

The main set ended with one of my favourite Doves tracks (still after all these years), The Cedar Room. The band then left the stage before returning for a pretty spectacular encore. They started with Lost Souls‘ moody instrumental Firesuite (!!!) before Andy stepped out from behind the drums to deliver Here It Comes. The show then ended with a couple songs from The Last Broadcast culminating in another anthemic, percussive performance of There Goes The Fear. How can you not love that song?

Was it a spectacular gig? Nope. But it was certainly enjoyable. Which, come to think about it, is pretty much what I think about Doves.

The Vine Melbourne Review has posted a good review of the Melbourne Palace Theatre show, along with some excellent pro-shot photos.

A relatively warm Tuesday night was the setting for Dovesreturn to Melbourne and, four years after their last sold out visit, there wasno shortage of excited smiles among the crowd hanging out front.

It wasn’t long before Jimi Goodwin and the Williams brothersambled out onto the stage to a roar from the crowd. Kicking things off with‘Jetstream’, the first tack from new album,Kingdom of Rust they followed itup with crowd favourites, ‘Snowden’, ‘Winter Hill’ and one of their best-lovedoldies, ‘Pounding’.

Doves @ Splendour In The Grass

Earlier today, doves performed at the Splendour In The Grass festival in Byron Bay, Australia. Here’s some of the coverage from twitter & TripleJ.

Jimi spoke to tripleJ radio earlier. Some of it has been featured on a blog post “Doves Last Blogcast”.

Here’s a bit of the interview:

When did you get to Byron – any time off on this tour? What’s your impressions so far?

we landed in byron at about 1.00pm today straight from Japan so we haven’t had a chance to see this amazing town this time round ( but we were here in 2005 and had a few days off and had a great time)

To read the full interview, visit the last blogcast here.
