The Academy Dublin, Friday November 9th.
The Doors Alive are widely regarded as the closest and most enthralling representation of the legendary 1960's rock gods The Doors in the world today. The Doors Alive most recently played to 3,000 people as headliners at Rock Radio’s Monsters of Mock event in Manchester and two special shows in Europe last summer to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Jim Morrison’s untimely death in Paris in 1971, the Melkweg in Amsterdam and La Cigale in Paris. The band re-create the sound, look, presence and magic of a real 1960's Doors concert, perfectly and effortlessly transporting the crowd back in time with classic hits such as 'Light My Fire', 'When The Music's Over, Riders On The Storm, The End and many more.
Willie Scott captures the look, attitude, and rich baritone voice of the late, great Jim Morrison with ease while his compadres showcase the musical chops of original Doors members Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore with finesse and skill. To achieve that authentic Sixties sound, the band use the very same instruments that members of the Doors originally used. These include a vintage Fender Rhodes Bass keyboard, a vintage Gibson keyboard and a vintage Gibson S.G guitar.
