Doves to play Brighton Racecourse on Friday 26 July

Posted On 17 Apr 2019 at 11:46 am


Doves are one of Britain’s rarest treasures and their reputation as a committed and consistent albums band is gilded by timeless singles includingThere Goes The Fear’ (UK No.3 single), Pounding (UK No.21 single) and Black And White Town (UK No.6 single).

Doves ‘Lost Souls’ and ‘The Last Broadcast’ albums

The Manchester band’s four albums to date, the Mercury Prize-nominated brace of Lost Souls (UK No.16 album) and The Last Broadcast’ (UK No.1 album), followed bySome Cities (UK No.1 album) andKingdom Of Rust (UK No.2 album) stand as monuments of refined song writing craft. Each recalls the band’s broad span of musical reference points, from the glinting riches of golden age soul and gritty garage to the woody rhythms of folk. Beyond their dancefloor-friendly singles, Doves’ universe moved around emotive soundscapes and gently sparkling love letters. Demand for their sell-out live performances saw them routinely headlining festival stages, from repeated Glastonbury appearances to 2003’s Teenage Cancer Trust concerts and the BBC Electric Proms.

Doves stepped off stage in 2010 and Jimi Goodwin, Andy and Jez Williams went their separate ways for an indefinite period. Yet the lines between them remained connected and their three-decade long friendship persisted as the hiatus drew on. In the absence of a plan, the next chapter began to fall into place and in 2018 they announced their long-awaited return. The deafening response to the news that Doves would play their cherished songs again has set the optimistic course for what lies ahead.

Doves promise a superb night of entertainment. Be sure to get your tickets for a perfect Summer’s evening, gigs not to be missed…
