Doves Cancel All Upcoming Tour Dates

Friday, 22 October 2021 Written by Laura Johnson

Doves have cancelled all of their upcoming tour dates.

The band, who released 'The Universal Want' in 2020, were set embark on a rescheduled UK and Ireland throughout February and March, with their show at the Piece Hall in Halifax moved to June.

However, they took to social media to share that this was due to bassist, lead vocalist and guitarist Jimi Goodwin suffering from mental health issues. He said:

"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 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 show 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."

The band added: "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 finsing incredibly difficult to put into words, knowing none will lessen your disappointment. Honestly, we feel it too. We have to take each other' 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."
