Music fans are in for a treat when Doors Alive play Kirkcaldy this week.

The Doors tribute act will play Society on Friday, April 18 as they kick off a number of gigs throughout Scotland.

The show will be a sort of homecoming show for the band as lead singer, Willie Scott, is originally from Kirkcaldy and he can’t wait to take to the stage.

He said: “We’re happy to be playing for our hometown fans. We all feel great about playing here in Kirkcaldy.

“We’ve got other dates in Scotland lined up so its worked out great.”

Playing in Glasgow the following night, the audience at Society can expect something different as the band showcase some songs they’ve never played before.

“Glasgow is an important show as we début Perception which is a collection of The Doors hits spanning their whole career.

“There will be costume changes and images projected on a big screen.

“So fans can expect a little preview although we can’t do the whole thing.

“It’s a different set compared to the last time that we played there.”

That last time was May last year.

The gig surprised people, not least Willie and the rest of the band, as it was so popular.

He said: “We were really surprised - happy - but surprised that the gig here in Kirkcaldy was as successful as it was.

“There were fans that had travelled from Glasgow, Edinburgh and even Aberdeen to come and see the show. It was fantastic.”

The band will be following in the original band’s footsteps playing the Isle of Wight festival this summer where they will be opening the festival – the first tribute band to do so.

“We’re thrilled to be playing at the Isle of Wight as we are opening the festival. We’re first tribute band to do so. We’re also the first Doors tribute act to play the event – no one else has been good enough!Out of all the other bands that have tried to get a slot, we’re the only band to be successful. The Doors played there in 1970 so it’s great that we’re able to do the same.”

Door Alive will be at Society on Friday at 9.00 p.m.
