Music lovers in Singapore, start your year on a high with the iconic music of American rock heroes, The Doors, and relive the legacy of their frontman, Jim Morrison, on February 8 at Sands Theatre at Marina Bay Sands.
The Doors released eight albums over a period of five years back in the 1960s, becoming one of the best-selling rock bands with over 100 million albums sold worldwide. With a string of hit singles and albums, the band’s success also saw the rising of a rock shaman – Morrison.
More than 50 years on, The Doors’ music and Morrison’s mystical command remains more influential than ever. With the band never having performed in Singapore before, The Doors – Reimagined is an entrancing recreation of their sound and presence.
Adding the intensity and magic of The Doors’ musical catalogue is an award-winning Australian conductor, listed by Limelight Australia in the ‘Top 20 Artists of the Year’ for 2017, Jessica Gethin. Combining forces of a 39-pieces orchestra, Jessica will lead rich orchestral strings, woodwinds, horns and percussion to provide the insight and attention to detail that creates a concert capturing The Doors’ live work with the respect and dignity it truly deserves.
Joining her in bringing the collective memory of Morrison to life is the charismatic Justin Burford, frontman of the Australian pop rock band, End of Fashion. Having grown up reading Morrison’s biographies, Burford skillfully perform Morrison’s deep, soulful tones and passionate signature rock and roll cries in a way that must be seen to be believed.
An orchestral concert, weaving through the songs of the revered band, The Doors – Reimagined is a must-see for music lovers in Singapore and anyone who is looking to experience an amazing and unique take The Doors’ music and impact. The hits being performed includes Light of my Life, Touch Me, LA women, Riders on the storm, Break on through (to the other side) and more.
It is time to reset the doors of perception once again.
