Former The Doors bandmates John Densmore and Robby Krieger have set a date for their Ray Manzarek tribute show – the late keyboard player’s birthday, Feb. 12.

Manzarek’s cancer battle and subsequent death earlier this year brought the former pals, who fell out over The Doors naming rights, back together and they’re planning to hit the stage again next year.

Krieger tells UltimateClassicRock.com, “It’s going to be February 12th. I’m not sure where yet, but probably somewhere in L.A… That’s what we’re shooting for.

“We’re talking with (concert promotions company) Live Nation, and we want to get some great guys to play. I want to get some great keyboard guys, some people that Ray looked up to – Keith Jarrett maybe or Herbie Hancock.

“That would be the first time that John and I would have played (together) for a long time.”
