27 April 2005
Doves have been forced to pull out of their appearance at this weekend's Coachella Festival in California due to the ill health
of vocalist Jimi Goodwin.
The lead singer is suffering from severely strained vocal chords, prompting the group to
pull out of Coachella, as well as their first date of a series of eight live dates across the US.
cancellations are expected to have a knock-on effect on their Australian tour dates in June, which will all have to be rescheduled.
Goodwin wrote on the Doves official website: "I've been told to rest my vocals for two to three
weeks. Coachella aside, it's postponement not cancellation! We are already tentatively re-scheduling. We're truly gutted but
it's got to be right long term."
takes place between 30 April-1 May at the Empire Polo Field, Indio, California.
Coldplay, Razorlight, New Order, Weezer and The Prodigy
are among those playing. Click here for the full lineup.
