Perth Symphony Orchestra is taking the trippiest of orchestral rides in their most ambitious and psychedelic production to date, Love Him Madly: The Doors Reimagined, hitting His Majesty’s Theatre on Friday, August 2.
Taking you back a time when the counterculture and free love movements of the 60s rebelled against the Vietnam War and assassinations of JFK and Martin Luther King – with civil rights protests, psychedelic music and the Summer of Love – out of this came The Doors, with the most charismatic frontman of them all, Jim Morrison. Controversial counterculture giants, together they changed music forever.
The next in Perth Symphony Orchestra’s acclaimed Reimagined series, this follow up to Unplugged: Nirvana Reimagined is set to be a spectacular event capturing the very essence of Morrison and The Doors at the height of their powers.
Joining Perth Symphony as Jim Morrison is End of Fashion frontman Justin Burford (pictured above), veteran of acclaimed tribute act LA Women. They say it’s set to get you about as high as you can on orchestral music, and will feature greatest hits from Break on Through to Light My Fire to Riders on the Storm to The End.
Love Him Madly: The Doors Reimagined plays His Majesty’s Theatre on Friday, August 2. Tickets on sale now from www.perthsymphony.com.
