Melbourne Doors Tribute Show came into being in 1992 when 5 individuals decided that there was not enough representation of classic rock music in the live scene at the time. The members were in an existing cover band that already included some Doors numbers. It was hard not to ignore the lead singers uncanny similarity to Jim Morrison in stage presence, vocal tone, mannerisms and general extravert behaviour, so they decided to embark on a brand new project – to create a stage show entirely devoted to the music and talents of The Doors ensemble.
The Doors Show built up a nationwide following in the 90’s which resulted in regular and busy tour schedules, sometimes 5 shows per week. The Doors Tribute Show recreates the energy that existed in a 60’s doors arena concerts. They are dedicated to raising the energy of the room and sustaining that energy, so that the crowd can open their own doors of perception and thus feel a release of free and primal exhilaration through engagement with the music.
The Doors and the songs of The Doors are powerful metaphors for freedom of expression. The songs were given their birth in the 60’s, when substantial world events brought about such changes in western culture that people needed avenues to express their new ideas of freedom.
Doors music encapsulates the essence of the psychedelic, but also the anger and the determination to change the world, to reach out and be heard, to incite change. The Show revisits this, and invites you to come and share the energy of change, and to enjoy the spectacular phenomenon of The Doors.
