To celebrate Dovesâ€™ forthcoming best of collection â€˜The Places Between: The Best Of Dovesâ€™ (5th April) and following the bandâ€™s biggest ever headline show at Manchester Central in December, a truly memorable performance at the BBC Electric Proms and last yearâ€™s storming appearance headlining the John Peel stage at Glastonbury Doves have announced that they will be playing a few very special shows during April and May.
Furthermore, as this tour coinciding with the release of their generation defining Best of collection â€˜The Places Betweenâ€™, fans can expect to hear Jimi, Jez and Andyâ€™s choice of tracks from their twelve-year career.
From the number 3 hit â€˜There Goes The Fearâ€™ to the Motown thump of â€˜Black and White Townâ€™, the kraut-rock inspired â€˜Jetstreamâ€™ and the anthemic morning after glow of â€˜The Cedar Roomâ€™ to name but 1 track each from epochal debut â€˜Lost Soulsâ€™, the Mercury Music Prize nominated â€˜The Last Broadcastâ€™, widescreen masterpiece â€˜Some Citiesâ€™, and not least, last years critically acclaimed gem, â€˜Kingdom Of Rustâ€™ – Doves truly have the most extraordinary and compelling live sets of any touring British band today.
â€˜The Places Between: The Best of Dovesâ€™ is released 5th April on Heavenly Recordings / Virgin Records and is available as a single disc or 3 disc deluxe edition with a DVD of all the bands videos. The album comes in a single disc and multi disc versions.
