Absolutely Live – The Doors Show

The Doors and the songs of The Doors are powerful metaphors for freedom of expression!

The songs of The Doors were given their birth in the ‘60s, when substantial world events brought about changes in western culture because people needed avenues to express their new ideas of freedom. This carefully orchestrated production including stage projections sets the scene. Lead singer Tony Dee aka Jim Morrison works the crowd from the opening number of Riders on the Storm to Morrison’s spine chilling poetry from Celebration of the Lizard King, all the way through to the final numbers of LA Woman and Roadhouse Blues. This band knows how to bring the audience to a high pitched crescendo, and they love it! 

The band really captured how it would’ve felt to be at a real Doors show in the 60s. I now know why the audience went crazy when the doors played back then..this is a serious, touring re-creation stage show!‘ – Beat Magazine

The Doors Show are more theatrical rock, a tribute to The Doors, not a cover band!’It may not be The Doors on stage, but it may well as be’
” – Mark Diggins –The Rock Pit
