Doves live at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Review by

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.

More details on

Cherry Ghost

Black Fang Liverpool Uni

Got allot of emails/comments over the course of the tour about the support group. They were of course Cherry Ghost. I didn’t keep tabs of any of the Cherry Ghost setlists, if you did feel free to send them in. They changed the sets most nights.. Though I believe the tracks most folk were asking about are.. We Sleep on Stones, Kissing Strangers, Black Fang (see video above), Beneath This Burning Shoreline & Mathematics. All but the later are from their new album details here. Mathematics (which features Jimi Goodwin) was their first single which you can find on the debut album Thirst for Romance.

You can download We Sleep on Stones for free from their official website here.

Stereophonics Support Slot

Good news for those of you in Wales.. The official Stereophonics website reports that Doves will provide support for their Cardiff City Stadium show on June 5th.

Cheers to an optional extra at doves board for the info.

The Delays For Folkestone

As we previously reported Cherry Ghost will be supporting all of the dates on the UK tour except for Folkestone. Cherry Ghost will also provide the support for the Thretford Forest gig on June 12th.

Edit: Actually this is not the case! Ticket sites reporting this are doing so in error.

The Delays will provide the support for the Folkestone gig. Nice! I really enjoyed their first two albums, Faded Seaside Glamour is a great listen.

Tour Support

Just an updated line about the UK tour support. Cherry Ghost will support all the UK shows apart from Folkestone. Cherry Ghost will also play their own show at the Korova in Liverpool May 7th. Get your tickets here.

Cherry Ghost For UK Tour

Some good news today! Its been confirmed Cherry Ghost will be supporting doves on the UK tour in April/May. Cherry Ghost who have a new album in the pipeline due sometime in the summer are fantastic live, this is welcomed news as far I’m concerned. Well worth checking out if you are seeing a show.

Check out Cherry Ghost at MySpace.

Leeds Cockpit Support

Support at tomorrow’s free NME show will be privided by Olfar & The Feral Pets.

Lincoln & Leamington Spa Support

Support for the Lincoln & Leamington Spa shows will be provoded by Delphic. Their debut album Acolyte is out in January. New single Doubt sounds pretty good to me.

The Leamington Spa show is now sold out!

Manchester Central Support

Seetickets says that the Super Furry Animals & Delphic will be supporting at the Manchester Central show, December 18th. How’s that for a line up?! Cheers Redliz over at the board for the heads up!
