THE DOORS Perform 'Secret' Hollywood Gig
THE DOORS, featuring THE CULT frontman Ian Astbury and ex-THE POLICE drummer Stewart Copeland, performed a secret show at the House Of Blues in West Hollywood, California last night as a warm-up for their announced reunion show on September 6th at the California Motor Speedway as part of the Harley-Davidson 100th Anniversary Open Road Tour. The entire event was reportedly taped for an upcoming release through Bright Midnight Records, a label formed and operated by The Doors Music Company.
According to reports, THE DOORS performed a four-song set consisting of the following:
01. Roadhouse Blues
02. Strange Days
03. Love Me Two Times
04. When The Music's Over
During the interview segment of the show, which was conducted by veteran Los Angeles DJ Jim Ladd, THE DOORS mainstays Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger revealed plans to compose music for a new THE DOORS CD, which will apparently feature Astbury on lead vocals. A late 2003 release is expected.
