DOORS CLOSED

Replacement drummer Stewart Copeland has broken his arm...

A reformed version of THE DOORS have postponed their comeback shows because of an injury to their drummer.

Keyboardist Ray Manzarek and lead guitarist Robby Krieger recently announced plans to undertake a new tour, with Ian Astbury of The Cult on vocals and Stewart Copeland replacing founding member John Densmore on drums.

According to the Reuters news service, their first show, which was scheduled for the Las Vegas Palms on December 8, will be put back until January 19. The reason is that Copeland fell from his bike on a path near his Los Angeles home.

The group plan to return to Europe in the New Year for festival shows.
