Doors 4/18/22

Doors guitarist Robby Krieger has rolled out a string of dates stretching from the spring through the fall in which he’ll commemorate the 55th anniversary of the band’s second album, Strange Days.

As it stands now, Krieger will launch the trek on May 13th at Tempe, Arizona’s Marquee, with the shows eventually winding down during a homecoming gig on L.A.’s Sunset Strip on September 25th at the legendary Whisky a Go Go. The show will play on the actual 55th anniversary of the famed album.

The Doors’ Strange Days was released on September 25th, 1967 and peaked at Number Three on the Billboard 200. The tracklisting to Strange Days is: “Strange Days” “You’re Lost Little Girl,” “Love Me Two Times,” “Unhappy Girl,” “Horse Latitudes,” “Moonlight Drive,” “People Are Strange,” “My Eyes Have Seen You,” “I Can’t See Your Face In My Mind,” and “When The Music’s Over.”

Robby Krieger told us that today, he fully embraces his Doors past: [“Y’know, at first when I would play alone, I didn’t do any Doors ’cause I’d had albums come out and stuff. But then I used to go see those Doors tribute bands, and boy, were they having fun, and the audience was having fun, and I was, ‘Wait a minute — those are my songs.’ So, I started playing them more and more, and we do a lot of Doors stuff now.”] SOUNDCUE (:18 OC: . . .
