Morrison Hotel/Absolutely ALIVE + Support

Saturday 20th November

Academy 3

For this show The Doors Alive will be honouring the 50th anniversary of The Doors’ classic albums, Morrison Hotel and Absolutely Live with a very special set to commemorate them both.

"To call The Doors Alive merely a tribute act would be a huge disservice to what is the closest thing possible to experiencing a Doors concert without the aid of a flux capacitor and 1.21 gigawatts. They are high priests who allow us to worship at the altar of The Doors by continuing the word and gospels of Jim Morrison, Ray Manzarek, Robbie Krieger and John Densmore." - Pure Magazine, Ireland.

The band recreate the sound, look, presence and magic of a real 1960's Doors concert, perfectly and effortlessly transporting the audience back in time with classic hits such as "Light My Fire", "When The Music's Over", "Riders On The Storm", "The End" and many more. The Doors Alive have over 1,000 shows under their belt to date.

The Doors Alive formed in 2005. Since then there have been a few changes, but the current line-up is the best it has ever been!

Frontman Mike Griffioen captures the look, attitude and rich baritone voice of the late great Jim Morrison with ease while his compadres Barrington Meyer on guitar, Buzz Allan on drums and Norbert Varga on keyboards showcase the musical chops of original Doors

members Robby Krieger, John Densmore and Ray Manzarek with finesse and authenticity. They take pride in using the exact same vintage equipment to achieve an authentic sound, including Rhodes Piano Bass, Gibson G101 organ, Gibson SG and Ludwig Mod Orange drum kit. They are keen on making every single show unique by authentic improvisations and changing the set regularly so you will never see the same show twice!

The Doors Alive have left awestruck audiences in several countries around the world, including the UK, Ireland, Australia, Denmark, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Poland, Slovenia, Malta, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, UAE and Chile to name but a few. They repeatedly sell out some of the most well established venues in Europe. They have played at the legendary Isle of Wight Festival and played on the same bill with such legendary musicians as Status Quo, Canned Heat, Nazareth, Uriah Heep, Manfred Mann's Earth Band, Eric Burdon and Kris Kristofferson. In Chile the band played an arena show to 4,500 Doors fans! In several countries including France and Lebanon the band have been featured on national television.

Dadi Freyr

Wednesday 24th November

Club Academy

Music and family are the most important things in the world to Daði Freyr. It’s what drives him forward, what inspires him, and it’s what keeps him rooted to Iceland, to the close-knit communities he has always adored.

An artist who obsesses overthe intricate craft of the pop song, Daði Freyr is a student of Eurovision. Working with the group Gagnamagnið –which translates as ‘data plan’ -‘Think About Things’ radiates with all the joy and unity the competition can provide, while also offering something deeply authentic and new.

It all started in his Berlin studio. Part of the Icelandic diaspora, he takes a part of the island with him wherever he goes. Working from a tiny space in his flat, Daði Freyr’s DIY approach is matched to colossal pop ambition, a true student of melody and lyric. ‘Think About Things’ was directly inspired by becoming a father, bythe changes in his life, and it’s brought Daði closer to those around him.

His wife, Árný Fjóla Ásmundsdóttir, is on keys. Backing vocals come from his two sisters. Daði even borrowed a vintage microphone from his father –a noted sound engineer –to help get the perfect sound. ‘Think About Things’ is an irresistibly joyous song that not only connects Europe, it also links three generations of his own family.

‘Think About Things’ is impeccably pieced together. Each instrument is given space to express itself, with Daðimoving from the intro to the stunning chorus; from the layered breakdown to the tongue in cheek wind machine section. The song is designed to be seen by the world, all part of his intricate masterplan, coupled with the stunning live performances and the viral video.

Daðiworked withIcelandic director Guðný Rós Þórhallsdóttir and cinematographer Birta Rán Björgvinsdóttir to bring his dreams to reality. The family-based performance clip self-consciously playswithinEurovision rules –instruments cannot be plugged in onstage–while offering something jubilant, and gently triumphant.

Extremely humble, and obsessed with sound, Daði Freyr endsthe song as he begins –surrounded by his family, reaching out to Europe.
