The Doors performance at the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival will be available officially for the first time. The festival is thought to be the last filmed Doors concert.
The Doors: Live at the Isle of Wight 1970 footage is what turned out to be the band’s final filmed show with Jim Morrison on Aug. 30, 1970.
“Our set was subdued but very intense,” Ray Manzarek said of the band’s Isle of Wight performance. “We played with a controlled fury and Jim was in fine vocal form. He sang for all he was worth, but moved nary a muscle. Dionysus had been shackled.”
