The Universal Want Tour

Doves are returning to Ireland for their first headline, indoor live dates since 2009! Dublin and Belfast dates have been confirmed for April 2021. Doves live dates in Ireland come as part of an expansive UK & Ireland Tour, taking in cities including Glasgow, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol and London.

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 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.

The Manchester three-piece announce their return just weeks before the release of their long-awaited, fifth studio album, The Universal Want out Friday 11 September 2020.


Doves will play the Olympia Theatre, Dublin on 06 April 2021 and The Limelight, Belfast on 07 April 2021.

Tickets are on sale now.
