The Live at The Piece Hall series has added a further legendary name to it's line-up, as Manchester alternative rock band Doves has been announced to play a special outdoor performance at the prized Halifax venue in June 2022.

Doves will come to The Piece Hall on Saturday 18 June, following the release of their 5th studio album ‘The Universal Want’ on EMI in September 2020.

After meeting at the renowned Hacienda club in Manchester and forming dance act ‘Sub Sub’ (reaching number 3 in the UK Charts with ‘Ain’t no Love (Ain’t no use)’, Doves surfaced after Sub Sub’s studio burnt down, prompting the decision for Doves to be born as an alternative rock act. 

Since that twist of fate, the band have released three number 1 albums, becoming one of the most influential and respected guitar acts of the last 20 years.  Combining a blend of indie rock, shoegaze and soundscapes fit for stadiums, Doves have held a place in the hearts of alternative music fans across their increasingly consistent catalogue. After a 10-year hiatus, the band shot to number 1 with ‘The Universal Want’, and this special show at The Piece Hall will form part of a greatly-anticipated return to live music.

Joining the line-up with Doves are Mercury Music Prize-nominated singer-songwriter Nadine Shah, fast-rising indie rock band Pip Blom, alt-pop newcomer Sfven plus a main support act still to be announced.
