Doves have announced a special home-forest show as part of Forest Live, the summer concert series presented by Forestry England. They'll be performing with special guests to be announced, at Delamere Forest, near Northwich, Cheshire on Sunday 20 June 2021.
Following a break from recording for over a decade, Doves made a triumphant return to the charts in 2020, rewarding their patient fans with the No 1 album ‘The Universal Want’. The Forest Live gig will be one of the first opportunities to hear the Manchester band performing material from their latest release live, as well as delving into a rich back catalogue from previous albums ‘Lost Souls’, ‘The Last Broadcast’, ‘Some Cities’ and ‘Kingdom of Rust’. Doves: Jimi Goodwin (bass, vocals, guitar), Andy Williams (drums, vocals) and Jez Williams (guitar, vocals), last played Delamere Forest as part of Forest Live to a sell-out crowd in 2009.
Tickets will go on sale at 9am on Friday 6th November, priced at £42.50.
Forest Live is a major outdoor live music series held every year by Forestry England. It introduces forests to new audiences in unique, natural woodland arenas around the country. Over 1.9 million people have attended a Forest Live concert in the last nineteen years. With everything needed for a great night out, including good food and drink, the concerts are well-known for their informal and relaxed atmosphere set to a spectacular forest backdrop. Going to a Forest Live concert helps look after the nation’s forests sustainably, with income from ticket sales helping to create beautiful places for people to enjoy, wildlife to flourish and trees to grow.
