Manchester band Doves play the third concert of the Forestry Commission's Live Music Series at High Lodge, Thetford Forest on Saturday (gates 6.30pm, gig 7.30pm).

Doves' critically-acclaimed debut album Lost Souls (2000) was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and was followed up by their subsequent chart-topping albums The Last Broadcast (2002) and Some Cities (2005).

Last year saw the release of their long-awaited fourth album Kingdom of Rust, which entered the album charts at number two.

They gave a memorable performance at the BBC Electric Proms, performed on the main stages at Latitude and John Peel stage at Glastonbury and in December played their biggest-ever headline show at Manchester Central.

In April Doves released the collection The Places Between: The Best Of Doves.

Fans can expect to hear Jimi, Jez and Andy's choice of tracks from their twelve-year career. From the number three hit There Goes The Fear to the Motown thump of Black and White Town to the kraut-rock inspired Jetstream.
