The Doors Alive Tickets
The Doors Alive Break on Through
Loved for their sound as much as they are for their ready-to-party philosophy, The Doors Alive perfectly captures the melodies, mannerisms, and spirit of the original Jim Morrison-fronted band in their passionate tribute group. Lead singer Willie Scott has elevated his impression to performance art, channelling the Lizard King's every note and nuance, swaying to his songs and seducing the women in the audience at once. The band follows suit, carefully recreating the songs for a pitch-perfect recreation that lets fans old and new re-experience what it might have been like to view Morrison and his crew at their peak.
Those with The Doors Alive tickets can most often see the group in their native UK, visiting Glasgow, Carlisle, Sheffield, Liverpool, London, Cardiff and Manchester, before heading to Ireland and the Netherlands. Prior locations have included France, Serbia, Germany and Dubai. They're also quite popular on the festival circuit, hitting the Isle of Wight Festival, just as the original Doors did.
Frontman and Jim Morrison-devotee Willie Scott perfects his rendition of the Lizard King by poring over videos, biographies and still images of the once-great Morrison in order to ensure his performances are accurate. More than an imitation, Scott seeks to be guided by his expansive understanding of who Morrison was to create a true-to-form experience that acknowledges the original singer's charisma and style.
To remain authentic, the band features doppelgangers of each of the original members. Willie Scott, lead singer, stands in for Jim Morrison. Buzz Allan, the drummer, stands in for John Densmore; Norbert Varga plays Ray Manzarek's role as keyboardist; and Baz Meyer strums the guitar as Robby Krieger. Each member uses the exact same instrument brands and models as the original members, and they each research and practice their roles to ensure they offer convincing, credible performances.
The Doors Alive have written no original material, only utilising the existing Doors music to fill their shows. The Doors first broke onto the music scene with their debut album, the self-titled production that included hits such as "Light My Fire," "When the Music's Over" and "The End." Another single from the first album also garnered them a great deal of attention, "Break on Through (to the Other Side)." They honed their skills at the Los Angeles club London Fog before graduating to the famous Whiskey a Go Go. The Doors Alive similarly developed their ferocious following playing local clubs and wowing the audience with the spot-on simulations, earning rave critical reviews and even attaining the blessing of former Doors assistant road manager Doug Cameron.
The Doors Alive play all the songs from the Doors discography, including huge hit albums such as The Doors, Strange Days, L.A. Woman and Waiting for the Sun, as well as lesser known albums that received somewhat less fanfare. The Doors' first, self-titled album peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, and was certified 4x platinum in the U.S. and Canada. 1968's Waiting for the Sun grabbed the No. 1 spot in U.S. and French charts, and went platinum in two countries.
Just like the Doors' shows, The Doors Alive interact with their fans during concerts, which are small, intimate, and just the right amount of dirty. Bras and underwear (men and women's) are often left behind as tributes too. The performances are meant to be not only accurate but also mesmerising, folding the audience into the sensation of participating in a 1960s Doors concert, including old-fashioned lighting effects and stripped down stages.
