Come on over to our house on Saturday, Sept. 11, and be prepared to rock. The L.A. County Fair is pleased to announce that The Doors of the 21st Century will be performing at 8 p.m. on the Los Angeles Newspaper Group Grandstand Stage as part of the Fair’s End of Summer Concert Series.
While the element “of the 21st Century” may be new, two members of the original Doors will be on stage providing the sounds that are indisputably some of the most memorable in rock n’ roll history.
Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger and their strong presence will lend the support to front man Ian Astbury of The Cult, and his rich baritone, as they perform the songs that defined the Doors.
Astbury had expressed a desire to be a part of the group if they ever went out on the road again and the original members are happy to report that it’s all a good mix.
For the generation that grew up with the band along with the new generations of younger fans more good news is that the group is having fun performing. The material, including “Light My Fire,” “Break on Through,” “L.A. Woman,” “Riders on the Storm,” and more is too good to sit on a shelf.
