On Saturday, Aug. 20, local favorite The Dirty Doors return to DeLand’s Athens Theatre with their electrifying tribute to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band The Doors.
Reed Barrickman transforms himself into an amazing reincarnation of Jim Morrison as he performs the virtuoso star’s dark and famously poetic lyrics to overwhelming audience response.
One fan described the band as having a “great guitar, great keyboard and fantastic drums!” Another enthusiast’s review exclaimed, “Virtuoso music from these four phenomenal performers! I would sell a kidney to see them again!”
You don’t have to sell a kidney, but it would be a good idea to reserve your favorite seats now to hear the thrilling sounds and allow the light show to amaze you, as The Dirty Doors replicate one of America’s most influential bands. The Doors were a group who, over the course of five years, forever changed the course of rock music by bridging the gap between poetry and popular music, and by irrevocably transforming the image of the generic lead singer into a leather-clad, long-haired, bare-chested, piercing-gazed rock star.
Don’t miss the songs that won The Doors a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award: the driving bass line of “Roadhouse Blues,” the mysterious “seven horses” of “Love Her Madly,” and the conflagration of Ǖber Cool and acid rock that illuminates “Light My Fire.”
The Dirty Doors will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20, in the historic Athens Theatre, at 124 N. Florida Ave. in Downtown DeLand.
Tickets cost $35 for preferred reserved seating (first six rows orchestra, and two rows center balcony); and $30 for general reserved seating. A $4-per-ticket processing charge and 6.5-percent sales tax will be added to each purchase.
