Come On Baby Light My Casino... Doors Show to Come to Vegas 2008

Next year is the 40th anniversary of the band's first album, and those films lead a flurry of tie-in projects that include lavish new coffee-table books, albums of poetry and, of course, plenty of music releases that range from the rare to the repackaged.

And talk about strange days, there's even a plan to take the Doors to Vegas in 2008. Jeff Jampol of Doors Music Co. said the surviving members and Morrison's estate are negotiating a deal in the "tens of millions of dollars" to build a special theater of 800 to 1,200 seats at a Las Vegas casino and tailor-design a standing show. Although the music of Queen, Bob Dylan and Billy Joel has in recent years been repurposed as stage shows, Jambol said: "We don't feel a Broadway show or dance piece or circus piece fits what the Doors stand for."

So how would the Doors handle it? One of the ideas now is a midnight show with no live actors that borrows from both Disneyland's Haunted Mansion and those old Pink Floyd laser-light shows. The audience would enter the venue single-file through a dark hallway with piped-in Morrison poetry. Inside, the seats would be individually wired for sound and surrounded by an iMax screen, holograms, computer-generated special effects and all manner of weirdness. The story line and characters are a work in progress, but it would be fiction, not the band's story.
