DOVES

  • Date: Fri 2nd April 2021
  • Doors Open: 6:30 pm
  • On Sale: Tickets Open

Doves are going on tour! An emotional homecoming at Manchester’s O2 Apollo, a return to London’s 02 Academy Brixton and a night at Glasgow’s Barrowland Ballroom feature in the 13-date jaunt, with the band hitting the road in March and April 2021. Tickets to catch the cherished Manchester three-piece, who recently announced the arrival of their long-awaited, fifth studio album, The Universal Want, go on general sale to fans on Fri 31 July at 10am.

 

Bowled over by the overwhelming, international response to their freshly-minted, ambitious, yet ‘instant classic’ Doves tracks, Carousels and Prisoners, Jimi Goodwin, Andy and Jez Williams take their sweeping, emotive live experience indoors for the first time since their remarkable Royal Albert Hall comeback show in March 2019. Steering their ship, first to Cardiff and concluding a month later in Glasgow, taking in Birmingham, Sheffield and Bristol along the way, Doves’ thorough nationwide itinerary includes their first hometown headline date in Manchester since October 2010.

 

Restlessly exploring the outer reaches of their own musical ideas with the help of other, progressive artists, Doves also unveil a new version of Carousels, remixed by Mercury Music Prize-shortlisted futurist jazz voyagers The Comet Is Coming. Stripped, reassembled and set racing in brand new colours, the London-based trio – formed of members, Betamax, Danalogue and King Shabaka – unlock Doves’ dark side, pulling wind-instrumentation to the fore, isolating Jez Williams’ vocal to become an ethereal counterpoint to Goodwin’s enduring warmth and create chasms of space, within which rolling clouds of intense atmosphere develop.

 

Welcoming fans into such vast expanses of uncharted sound promised by The Universal Want, as well treating fans to key cuts from a vaunted back catalogue spanning the three decades, the full list of Doves’ The Universal Want UK Tour dates are as follows:
