The Doors
Live at The Bowl '68

Saturday 19 April, 7.30pm
Widely held as the band’s best performance ever captured on film, for the first time, fans can watch the complete concert in digitally remastered glory with surround sound. Beautifully filmed, the entire concert has been carefully restored from the original camera negatives and opens with special interviews with the band talking about what it meant to perform at the Hollywood Bowl and the enduring significance of this concert. More than 40 years after their debut album, The Doors’ music and legacy are more influential than ever, and this film shows why they were such a dynamic live force.



  Russell Kane

Sunday 20 April, 8.00pm
What is it with us and smallness? We Brits love it - being tiny but fierce, close but distant. This Jedward-haired award-winning idiot is the same, and he returns with a new blisteringly big-small show. Watch him ejaculate thoughts about smallness; on keeping things small when life gets big.

“a smart, probing brain lurks below the vertiginous quiff” Evening Standard

“Russell Kane's new show will make this one-of-a-kind man of the people a big star” The Telegraph
