Festival Details - "Doves"...

MCD Presents
The Olympia Theatre
Tuesday 6th April 2021


DOVES announce their first Irish tour dates in 12 years, giving fans the first chance to hear new material live.

Doves are returning to Ireland for their first headline, indoor live dates since 2009! A night at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre has been confirmed in the band’s diary for 6th April 2021, with the cherished Manchester three-piece announcing their return just weeks before the release of their long-awaited, fifth studio album, The Universal Want.

Tickets priced from €40.20 including booking fee & €1 restoration levy on sale NOW via 

The fees for this event include a €1.00 restoration levy. The restoration levy will allow The Olympia Theatre to invest in maintaining and enhancing the theatre to ensure that it continues to consistently deliver the highest quality experience for theatre goers, actors, performers & producers.

Under 14's must be accompanied by an adult. Standing tickets are recommended only for those over 14 years of age. Over 18's ID required to gain access to the bars where alcohol is served.

Doors open 7pm. Approximate stage times will be posted here when received from production.

Bowled over by the overwhelming, international response to their freshly-minted, ambitious, yet ‘instant classic’ Doves tracks, Carousels and Prisoners, Jimi Goodwin, Andy and Jez Williams take their sweeping, emotive live experience indoors for the first time since their remarkable Royal Albert Hall comeback show in March 2019.

Returning for their first headline theatre shows in twelve years, the last chance Doves fans got to enjoy live versions of hits including Pounding, There Goes The Fear and Snowden was at the Olympia, Dublin on Mon 20 April 2009. Doves returned briefly to Ireland in June 2019 during an initial run of comeback outdoor and festival dates, that time as main support to Noel Gallagher at his huge Malahide Castle show.

Doves live dates in Ireland come as part of an expansive UK & Ireland Tour, covering 15 dates, also taking in cities including Glasgow, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol and London. Ticket links for Doves dates in Ireland, as well as across the UK, will be available and updated at

First emerging in 1998, Doves’ debut album, Lost Souls (2000), received a Mercury Award nomination, before Number One follow-up, The Last Broadcast (2002) achieved the same critical feat, at the same time as delivering the major league, breakthroughs singles, There Goes The Fear and Pounding. Straight-to-Number One follow up, Some Cities (2005) and final, pre-pause album Kingdom of Rust (2009) completed what could have been a perfect legacy had the story ended there.

Not content to leave those threads untied, Doves finally release The Universal Want to patient fans on Fri 11 September 2020 in multiple, special edition formats including a sought-after box set, comprising the album on vinyl and cassette, a limited-edition Remix LP, postcards and signed prints. Limited edition, coloured vinyl editions make their way to fans via the band’s mailing lists and anIndie Stores Exclusive. All currently available formats, with many exceeding already overwhelming demand, can be found at
