OFFICIAL CANCELLATION STATEMENT;
Official statements below:
“We are gutted to have to say that all upcoming Doves live dates have to be cancelled. Our sincere apologies go out to everyone who has bought tickets, it’s news that we are finding incredibly difficult to put into words, knowing none will lessen your disappointment. Honestly, we feel it too. We have to take each other’s welfare as seriously as the music and, sadly, mental health issues simply mean that performing live isn’t possible for us at this time or for the immediate future."
"I am unfortunately unable to commit to forthcoming Doves live dates, meaning they have to be cancelled. My decision to bow out, is believe me, not something I’ve taken lightly. One should never apologise for having issues with their mental health, but I do want to say ‘sorry’ to all that have bought tickets. I’m truly grateful for the patience, love and understanding of my brothers Andy, Jez and Rebelski. I’m also incredibly grateful for the support, love and appreciation folks have shown for Doves’ music over the years.
The reception ‘The Universal Want’ received, our first LP in eleven years, left us immensely proud. What fantastic affirmation of Jez, Andy and I. Sunshine in these tumultuous times. Thank you."
PLEASE GO DIRECTLY TO YOUR TICKET PROVIDER FOR A REFUND.
COVID STATEMENT FROM THE BAND;
Hi everyone, Jez, Andy & Jimi here with long-awaited news about next month's dates that many have you have been asking about recently. For obvious reasons we're unable to make the proposed tour happen, which we're really gutted about as it was to be our first proper album tour for almost 12 years.
We've held off making any announcements until we could give you the full details of the new dates which are now scheduled for early next year. With so many bands moving their tours into 2022 booking those dates has been tricky and there are a couple of venue changes due to their availability.
Thanks for sticking with us, look after each other and we’ll see you next year.
Doves are an indie rock band from Cheshire, England.The band is composed of twin brothers Jez Williams (guitar, vocals) and Andy Williams (drums, vocals), and Jimi Goodwin (bass, vocals, guitar). Additionally, the band employs Martin Rebelski, as a touring and session musician on keyboards. The band released four studio albums between 2000 and 2009, two of which have reached #1 on the UK album charts. A compilation album, The Places Between: The Best of Doves, was released in April 2010.
