DOVES FLY HOME EASRLY

Which means no Coachella...

Doves have pulled out of a number of dates on their North American tour due to a problem with JIMI GOODWIN’s throat.

The singer has been advised not to perform for the next three weeks due to the problem, which rules out an appearance at the Coachella Festival this weekend.

A statement from Goodwin reads: “Sadly it’s true. I’ve been told to rest my vocals for two to three weeks. Coachella aside, it’s postponement not cancellation! We are already tentatively re-scheduling. We’re truly gutted but it’s got to be right long term.”

The tour is currently scheduled to resume in mid-May, with details to be confirmed in the coming days.
