INDIE-ROCK band Doves officially launched the Forum in Hatfield as a live music venue on Friday night.

The Mancunian three-piece kicked off a series of great gigs lined up for the University of Hertfordshire's new �38m entertainment venue with a blistering 90-minute set.

Before opening with most recent single Winter Hill, lead singer Jimi Goodwin announced: "Welcome Hertfordshire!"

The twice Mercury-nominated group then proceeded to play tracks from their latest studio album, Kingdom of Rust, as well as classics from chart-toppers The Last Broadcast and Some Cities, and debut single The Cedar Room.
