The Doors Rising will play at The Continental in Broadgate on Friday.

The UK-based Doors tribute band are known for capturing the sound, feel and experience of the psychedelic 60s.

The band originally formed in 2017 when lifelong Doors fans, Stuart (vocals) and Martyn (guitar) responded to an ad placed by founding keyboardist Freddie. Stuart and Martyn took the idea forward, starting with gigs in Southport where the band grew a loyal following, before moving on to bigger venues across the north west.

Stuart said: “Step back in time and re-live the music of The Doors recreated with stunning accuracy, using authentic instruments by true fans with an ear for the details.

“Expect to dance your feet off and sing along to all the classics including Light My Fire, Riders On The Storm, and Break On Through. We have an extensive set list with something to please even the most die hard fans!”

The Doors Rising play The Conti on Friday 17 May. Tickets cost £12 plus booking fee and are available from Skiddle.
