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, and now they have announced their biggest tour to date. This will include a Midnight at The Academy in Dublin show on Friday the 22nd of July 2011 to commemorate Jim Morrison’s 40th anniversary.

They will also play two special shows in Europe this summer to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Jim Morrison’s untimely death in Paris in 1971, the Melkweg in Amsterdam on the 1st of July and La Cigale in Paris on the 3rd of July.

The Doors Alive
“Truly AMAZING… They capture the true spirit of The Doors” Zane Lowe, BBC Radio 1
“The best tribute band I have EVER seen” Clint Boon, XFM
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.
They have left awestruck audiences all over the world and repeatedly sold out some of the most respected venues in the business, including 02 Academies all over the U.K.
