The Doors star Robby Krieger is to join rockers Govt’ Mule for a Halloween tribute to his former band.

Allman Brothers star Warren Haynes’ band stage a tribute show to other artists annually, and this year they’ve chosen to honor Krieger’s group – and the guitarist will join them onstage.

Gov’t Mule and Krieger will perform at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles on Oct. 30, and at the Fox Theater in Oakland the following night.

Krieger is also gearing up for another major Doors tribute show next year – he and former bandmate John Densmore are planning to pay tribute to keyboard player Ray Manzarek, who lost his battle with cancer earlier this year.

He recently told Ultimate Classic Rock, “It’s going to be February 12th. I’m not sure where yet, but probably somewhere in L.A. February 12th is Ray’s birthday, so that’s what we’re shooting for. We’re talking with 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 – some guys like that.

“Hopefully we’ll be successful in getting something like that together, and that would be the first time that John and I would have played (together) for a long time.”
