Doves play career-spanning set at homecoming show in Manchester

Wilmslow group rolled out the hits at The Warehouse Project

Doves performed a career-spanning set last night (October 16) at a homecoming gig in Manchester.

The band played The Warehouse Project, taking to the stage at 1am.

Kicking off with B-side ‘Push Me On’, the group rolled out a number of previous singles early on including ‘Snowden’, ‘Winter Hill’ and ‘Pounding’.


“Thanks for coming down, it’s our last ever gig,” guitarist Jez Williams said to the crowd, something he had also recently told NME.

Despite the claims frontman Jimi Goodwin was quick to play down the guitarist, saying “There he goes again”, something the band’s management also did, telling NME that it wasn’t their last show, having booked a number of dates in Australia next year.

Later on the set was composed of the band’s best-known singles such as ‘Black And White Town’, ‘Caught By The River’, ‘The Cedar Room’ and ‘There Goes The Fear’, before closing with ‘Space Face’ by their previous incarnation Sub Sub.
