The Doors' extended booking at Steve Paul's The Scene through much of June is what likely led to them not being invited to perform at the Monterey Pop Festival. But adding insult to injury, The Scene decides to close during the festival's weekend and cancels The Doors' June 16-18 appearances there. The Doors instead book two shows at the Action House in Long Island and a show in Philadelphia.
During their first show at the Action House, Jim reportedly gets so drunk that he tries to take off his clothes while on stage. He's ultimately stopped and the set ends after only a few songs.
