Watch the Doors Spellbinding Performance at the Isle of Wight Festival, 1970

by Staff

The Doors remain a pillar of rock music when looking back at the last century’s sonic victories. Jim Morrison and The Doors’ influence on contemporary music is undeniable, but their importance to an audience in 1970 is vastly more imposing.

We’re dipping into the Far Out Magazine vault to look back at The Doors’ final filmed performance at the legendary 1970 edition of the Isle of Wight Festival. It’s a sound so immersive and impressive we’re sure it shook the British shores.

One of the band’s last ever performances before Morrison would leave the intoxicating inner circle of Los Angeles for Paris in an attempt to clean up his act. Sadly, it would end up being the place he would ultimately lose his life. Since then, the Isle of Wight show has recently been released as a brand new live album and comes with an accompanying video of the performance.
