Doors Alive, the UKís premier tribute band to the Doors, appearing at the Princess Pavilion Saturday 26 March...
The Doors were a celebration of all that was wild, weird and wonderful about 60ís L.A. They sang of bars, women and wine and they were definitely unique consisting of; a combined organ and bass player, giving them a very distinctive 60ís sound, a jazz drummer who added bossa nova beats, a blues guitarist with a gift for a catchy tune and a charismatic, talented and iconic front man.
Doors Alive, the UKís premier tribute band to the Doors, recreate the look, sounds and 60ís vibe of a classic Doors performance. The energetic show is delivered with style and professionalism and is the ultimate Doors experience ranging from a repertoire of classics such as When The Music's Over and L.A.Woman, to The End and Light My Fire. There are a few lesser-known album tracks slipped in here and there, but whether youíre a die-hard Doors fan or just someone who enjoys the music, thereís something in the show for everyone.
