Brock of the Doors tribute band Wild Child will take over vocals for the upcoming tour. The band is currently rounded out by bassist Phil Chen and drummer Ty Dennis.

Manzarek and Kreiger began touring together in 2002, 31 years after the death of lead singer Jim Morrison. They were originally joined by singer Ian Astbury of The Cult, along with drummer Ty DennisĀ  and bassist Phil Chen. They originally toured as “The Doors of the 21st Century” and then “Riders on the Storm”, but after legal battles with former Doors drummer John Densmore, they decided to tour as “Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger of The Doors.” After Astbury returned to The Cult, Manzarek and Krieger cycled through two more lead singers in Brett Scallions of Fuel and Miljenko Matijevic of Steelheart.
