Back on July 5th, 1968, the Doors lit up the Hollywood Bowl with an epic post-Independence Day show, which is the subject of the band’s upcoming Live at the Bowl ’68, a new concert video of the memorable gig. Here, the legendary quartet digs into “Hello, I Love You,” off their 1968 album Waiting for the Sun. The band gives a tight, clean performance of their hit, with Jim Morrison’s vocals draped precisely over the raucous track.

Live at the Bowl ’68 will be available on October 22nd on DVD, Blu-ray and digital video, with audio available on CD, double-LP and digitally.

On 5 July 1968 The Doors took to the stage of the Hollywood Bowl for a concert that has since passed into legend. The Doors were performing on the back of their 3rd album release “Waiting For The Sun” and the US No.1 single “Hello, I Love You”. They had been honing their live performances over the previous 2 years and were on absolute peak form. Now for the first time the original film footage from the Hollywood Bowl has been digitally scanned and restored to present the show better and more complete than it’s ever been seen before, with 2 previously cut tracks returned to the running order and with sound newly remixed and mastered from the original multitrack tapes by The Doors’ engineer and co-producer Bruce Botnick. This is now the definitive edition of this famous performance.
