This is Cornwall posted a review of the show at their site, though I suspect the reviewer was there for Mumford & Sons and not so much doves!
Lee asks where did it go wrong for the Doves Eden Session?
ON ENTERING the Eden Project on Friday night and spying CDs of Doves’ headline set would be on sale straight afterwards, I made a note to self to buy one.
On leaving I avoided the stall like the plague.
Where did it all go wrong?
It certainly didn’t help that Mumford & Sons were supporting –arguably the band of now, this gang of waistcoat-wearing public schoolboys have updated the sound of The Pogues and Men They Couldn’t Hang for the Twitter generation.
With their sense of zeitgeist many believed they should have headlined despite the lack of songs. It appeared Doves thought they should have headlined too.
The Mancunian three-piece who stormed the Sessions back in 2002 were sadly lacking.
Always devoid of character, they previously made up for it by powerful gigs of emotional firepower, halfway between Elbow and The Verve.
Doves have no need to worry about their vagaries of success. The Manchester band are assured competitors on the big stage. Their ether-scraping psych-rock is perfect accompaniment as the sun sets over the stadium.
Kingdom Of Rust, There Goes The Fear, Pounding and Caught By The River are songs that swell to a crescendo built on swathes of glistening electric guitar, all sweet surges and soaring choruses.
Setlist with thanks to an optional extra at doves board.

The Live Archive has been fully updated to include setlists for all the shows (except folkestone) from the Best Of tour. Pictures, video, links to media reviews included where possible.
From a personal point of view, it was just great seeing Doves live in the UK again. There was allot of talk of the tour being a final fling, if that was the case it sure didn’t feel like it. They surprised even me to be honest! Doves have never been a band where you expect many setlist changes on a tour.. but they sure did go all out this time.
There was no opening night nerves in Hull, you would never have guessed this was the opening night. They had an air of confidence about them that was quite refreshing. Opening the set with Firesuite then Push Me On was brilliant. A few media reviews seems to have questioned the inclusion of Push Me On from the off, but what a nice surprise for the fans. They carried on with the set changes in Leicester despite a flat crowd. M62 Song never a personal favourite of mine, sounded great live.
Glasgow as always proved once again why its the best city to play anywhere. Having seen shows in all the major UK/US cities.. none of them touch Glasgow. Great show, great crowd. Up there with the best doves shows I’ve seen, was a pleasure to be there.
They carried on the setlist changes through til the last night in Bradford. The Man Who Told Everything getting a dusting down in Blackburn, for the first time since 2003. The final show I caught was at the lovely Troxy in London where the prawn sandwich brigade were out in force. The Save 6 Music sign during the encore was a nice touch. Also a big shout out to Cherry Ghost who were brilliant at the shows I saw, only gripe was their sets were too short! Looking forward to the album.
Whatever happens next in Doves world, whether it be side projects, collaborations, tea parties.. expect to read about it on here! Cheers for reading.
As always, a big thanks to NLF for the setlist. So there you have it, a quite memorable tour has come to an end. I just got back to the States today, from what was a fantastic few weeks back home on blightly. Thanks to you all who sent in reviews/pictures/comments… expect to see all that up over the next week or so.

On election night, Doves played out to a packed sold out London Troxy. The crowd took a while to get going for this one, but they got going just in time for a cracking encore finished off with a rousing Spaceface complete with backdrop video.
