The Doors Alive – Barrowlands, Glasgow

2 August @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

with special guests from Switzerland:
– Dirty Sound Magnet

The Doors Alive is quite simply the most exciting, authentic, charismatic and sexually magnetic tribute band to pay homage to 1960’s rock titans The Doors. The band have worked tirelessly to achieve the same fluid, dark and heady sounds as The Doors at their psychedelic peak. Their heavy and ever-expanding touring schedule has included to date: The U.K, Dubai, The Middle East, The Netherlands, Ireland, Poland, Malta, Germany, France, Slovenia and Birmingham. In their wake, they leave thousands of Doors fans satisfied, yet hungry for their next fix! They have incited audiences to leave precisely 6 pairs of ladies knickers, 15 bras, 2 pairs of men’s boxer shorts, 1 boob tube and an old scabby comb strewn over the world’s stages.

What sets The Doors Alive apart, is their sheer dedication and determination to keep The Doors’ music not only alive but completely authentic and delivered with respect.
All four band members have dedicated their lives to rise to the position that they hold today: The World’s busiest and most respected Doors Tribute band. The band use the very same instruments implemented by the original members of The Doors. With their arsenal of vintage gear, they create note-perfect musical landscapes that evoke the swinging days of The Doors at their peak.
Frontman, Mike doesn’t just look and sound the part; with a rich baritone voice, stagecraft, charisma and brooding stage presence, he has the girls (and some of the fellas!) in the front row swooning, and the rest of the crowd nestling gently in the palm of his hand! Mike has studied Jim’s every move and mannerism to get the role down to a tee.
They flawlessly meld the styles the original members honed; flamenco, Blues, Jazz, Rock and Bossa Nova.

So let The Doors Alive Set Your Night On Fire, Swim You To The Moon, Love You Madly, make your day that little bit Stranger then drive you to the Road House, and When The Music’s Over, The Doors Alive will have broken you on through to the other side!
The End.

‘If you thought Val Kilmer was good, be warned this guy is even better. Moving and singing like Morrison the rich baritone clung to the air like molasses – Simply The best Doors tribute band on the road at the moment’
Ron Clooney – Author of ‘Mr. Mojo Risin’

‘The Doors Alive is the best Doors ‘tribute’ band that I’ve seen…
Sometimes they sound more like The Doors then The Doors’
Doug Cameron – Assistant road manager to The Doors 1968/69
