Too young to have seen one of America's greatest rock bands The Doors? Well this is the closest experience people can get.

The Doors Alive is the number one tribute act to the original California band which once featured the unique vocals of Jim Morrison.

Instead, singer Willie captures the attitude, look and voice of the late and great lead.

Willie is joined by other band members who have also honed their style to other Doors members playing styles note for note.

The group re-create the sound, look, presence and feel of a real 1960s Doors concert effortlessly, transporting the crowd back in time with such classic hits such as Light My Fire, When The Music's Over, Riders On The Storm, The End and many more.

At its time The Doors were considered a controversial and influential band, due mostly to Morrison's wild, poetic lyrics and enthusiastic, yet chaotic stage persona.

After Morrison's death in 1971, the remaining members continued as a threesome until disbanding in 1973.

Despite a career that barely totalled eight years, The Doors still have an enormous fan base as well as status in the mainstream music industry as being hugely influential and original.

To achieve the authentic 60s sound the tribute act uses the very same instruments that the members of The Doors originally used.

These include a vintage Fender Rhodes bass keyboard, a vintage Vox Continental keyboard and a vintage Gibson SG guitar.

The Doors Alive has wowed audiences across Europe and the UK.

See them in action at the O2 Academy in Frogmore Street on Sunday.
