Doves announce warm-up gig at Parr Hall night before playing Royal Albert Hall

Doves have announced a special gig at Parr Hall as a warm-up for their sold-out event at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

The Cheshire group will return to Warrington in 10 days, performing on Thursday 28 March, almost exactly 10 years since they last performed here back in March 2009.

The following day they will travel to London for a Teenage Cancer Trust gig joining The Coral, who played Parr Hall on Saturday (16 March), and The Fernweh.

The band said: “On familiar territory, looking out to see the faces of friends old and new, Doves return to Warrington Parr Hall.

“This is where a page is turned and the new chapter begins.”
