Doves Announce Their First Irish Tour Dates In 12 Years


Doves are returning to Ireland for their first headline, indoor live dates since 2009!

A night at Dublin’s Olympia and Belfast’s Limelight have been confirmed in the band’s diary for 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.

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.

Tickets go on sale this Friday 21 August 2020 at 9am.
