More than five decades after one of L.A.’s most beloved bands released its debut album, you can check out a band that’s devoted itself to re-creating The Doors’ live show atmosphere from the 60s.
Before Jim Morrison’s tragic death at the age of 27, the band created a collection of timeless classics, such as “Light My Fire,” “Hello, I Love You” and “L.A. Woman,” among numerous others, that still receive consistent play on classic rock radio stations.
Wild Child is dedicated to keeping that legacy alive for fans of the live show.
“The music is painstakingly reproduced and combined with the voice, look and essence of Jim Morrison live on stage (performed by lead singer Dave Brock),” according to the Canyon Santa Clarita website, where tickets for the show can be purchased. “Wild Child mirrors the depth, energy and emotion of The Doors concerts as they were live back in the late 1960s. The band also utilizes the same musical instruments live as The Doors did.”
Wild Child, which performs throughout the globe, is coming to Canyon Santa Clarita on July 12.
