Doves Tickets for Sale

This English indie rock band has been playing since 1998 as the Doves, but really met back in 1985 when they were all 15. The three band members, guitarist Jez Williams, drummer Andy Williams, and bassist and lead singer Jimi Goodwin, could not find the time to play with each other, as they were busy in other projects. In 1991 the three formed the dance collective Sub Sub. The sold tickets until they broke up in 1995 despite moderate success. In 1998 they reunited, but this time with a different name, the Doves, and a different style, alternative rock.

The group released three EPs in 1998 and 1999 as they tried to find an audience and gauge the critics' response. Critics were supportive of their new efforts and by April 2000 they released their debut album, Lost Souls. The group was similar to groups like Radiohead and other Brit rock groups popular at the time. The group sold tickets and was nominated for UK Awards like the Mercury Music Prize.

In 2002, the Doves returned with their second studio album, The Last Broadcast, which reached number one on the UK album chart. The single There Goes the Fear reached number three on the UK singles chart. Again the Doves toured trying to raise support and perhaps cross the Atlantic.
Sorry, no upcoming events found at this time.
The Doves third album, Some Cities, was noted for the single Black and White Town and helped land the group supporting gigs with U2 at the Twickenham Stadium in London, with Oasis at the City of Manchester Stadium, and with Coldplay at the JJB Stadium in Bolton. Doves tickets were not yet for headlining concerts, but they were for big shows on big tours.

The band's fourth album, Kingdom of Rust is set to be released on April 6, 2009 and is being accompanied by a short tour in March to celebrate the release of a single and an extended 24-date tour with shows scheduled throughout Britain and Ireland. OnlineSeats will have the Doves tickets for these shows to ensure a great view on the seating chart and a very affordable price for every concert on the tour schedule.
