Thursday Round-Up

Awaiting Doves arrival on stage. Picture by @michaelsjin

Doves returned to the live stage today for the filming of the new C4 music show Evo Music Rooms. They played the new single Andalucia (twice) as you would expect. They also did Black And White Town. Cheers to Jagger at doves board for the info. The show airs next Friday on C4 in the UK.

You may have noticed the new look went live today. I think you will agree it looks great. Don’t think the offish site has looked that good in years. If you haven’t already ordered the best of album, then head over to the bonus section of the site. Assuming you have one of the four studio albums on CD, just fire that into the CD drive let the site do its magic and you will get two quid off the Best Of.

If you have nowt going on Saturday afternoon, switch on BBC Radio 2 at 2pm to hear Doves play a couple tracks live for Dermot O’Leary.

I think that’s it for now, though I probably forgot something. More tomorrow no doubt!

There will also be coverage on the Red Button, with build up from this Saturday. Then footage from the gig will be up til October 31st. If there are any changes I will do my best to flag them up. So get those recorders out.. I will not be posting video/audio up for download or any links to other sites for download. There is always the possibility this could be released.

Expect full coverage on the blog! I have switched my work days to be able to hear/blog the show. Should be a good day/night wherever you are!

T in the Park Coverage

If you are looking for some TV coverage of Doves set at today’s T In The Park. BBC Three are due to be showing highlights of the set at 9pm. Failing that, the BBC will be streaming video of the performance at their T in the Park homepage later on. Will post a link when we have it.

Archive: Doves at Glastonbury 2009 (Edited Highlights)

The BBC have yet to broadcast Doves’ full set from this year’s Glastonbury festival, and it’s entirely possible that it may never be broadcast in full.

A programme of edited highlights (which has also been made available to UK viewers via the BBC’s website) was screened via interactive digital TV, early Saturday morning. It excludes a number of performances; some of which we will be able to upload over the next few days (namely ’10:03′, ‘The Outsiders’ and ‘Here It Comes’).

The video is an Xvid-encoded MPEG4 AVI file which should be standalone-compatible with most new DVD or AV players which are equipped to play DivX files.

With a bit of luck we will have doves Glasto performance for you here also.

Jimmy Fallon

Doves performed a short rip roaring version of The Outsiders on tonight’s edition of ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’. Video to follow tomorrow.

Reminder: Doves on Jimmy Fallon Tonight

Just a quick reminder, that doves are to peform on tonight’s edition of NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. The show starts 11:35pm Chicago time. Rumor has it they played the Outsiders. Would be a surprise to me if that’s true, I would have expected Kingdom Of Rust or Winter Hill. Tune in to find out.

Archive: Last Call With Carson Daly (AVI)

Here’s an Xvid-encoded AVI of Doves’ appearance on Last Call With Carson Daly, as promised earlier this week.
