I have seen a couple of Doors tributes before, many years ago, and whilst I enjoyed them at the time I have to say that none can possibly compare to The Doors Alive!
They are musically and vocally flawless! As a big Doors fan the gig at the Robin 2 Bilston was more than just a show it was a whole experience and you felt like you had been actually transported back to the late 60’s when The Doors were in their prime!
The lead singer was remarkable as Jim Morrison, there is no way he can improve! The set was an impressive 2 hours long and included a wide range of Doors songs, the better known ones being ‘Riders on the Storm’, ‘Break on Through’, ‘LA Woman’ and of course, ‘Light My Fire’. (My personal favourite though was ‘People are Strange’ as it is was hearing this song that got me to discover The Doors in the first place.The Doors Alive more than did it justice!)
The age range of the crowd was from late teens to mid 80’s and there was a great atmosphere which increased more and more throughout the night!
It was nice to see a few people dressed up in 60’s clothes which also enhanced the atmosphere.
“Jim” stayed in character throughout the performance. He gave off a likeable vibe and myself and the crowd warmed to him.
The musicians were breathtaking too. I fully recommend The Doors Alive as they are absolutely amazing! Look out for them at The Robin 2 next June.
