The sounds of summer

FANS OF The Doors will have the opportunity to watch the much loved band in Albufeira on July 18 at the Sheraton Pine Cliffs.

Although charismatic front man Jim Morrison died in 1971, the rest of the band has continued to perform around the world under the name Riders on the Storm.

As part of a programme of concerts organised by Allgarve Edition, the Waterboys will also be playing in the Algarve this summer. The group famous for The whole of the moon will be playing at the Vilamoura rugby club on August 11.  The band will be performing both classic Waterboys songs and new tracks from their latest album Book of Lightening.

Money from ticket sales will be donated to a number of Algarve-based charities including Existir, an Almancil based charity to help the homeless and disabled in the area, and Refúgio Aboim Ascensão, the children’s refuge in Faro.
