Inner City Live with DOVES and Johnny Marr 28th July 2019

DOVES are playing at Perry Park this Sunday (28th July) with Johnny MarrThe Coral  and The Twang in support for Innercity Live!

One of British music’s rarest treasures, Doves’ reputation as a committed and consistent albums band is gilded by timeless singles including There Goes The Fear, Pounding and Black And White Town. The Manchester band’s four albums to date, the Mercury Prize-nominated brace ofLost Souls and The Last Broadcast, followed by Some Cities and Kingdom Of Rust 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…

Support for the Birmingham – Perry Park show now includes Johnny Marr, The Coral and The Twang.

Innercity Live is at Perry Park on 28th July, 2019.
