Van Morrison / 02.05.12
Location: Millennium Forum
Date: 02 May - 03 May 2012
Van Morrison is without a doubt one of the most original recording artists in musical history. His live shows are always inspired and transcendental while some of his albums such as ‘Astral Weeks’, ‘Moondance’ and ‘It’s Too Late To Stop Now’ are widely viewed as among the best ever made. His songwriting has influenced everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Bono, Damien Rice to Paolo Nutini, Elvis Costello to Jim Morrison... the list is endless.
‘Brown Eyed Girl’, ‘Madame George’ and ‘Moondance’ were three of his songs that were included in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. Van Morrison has 6 Grammys and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll and Songwriters Hall of Fame.
The once off set list for the show will feature a selection of his greatest hits and songs that have a particular resonance to his Irish roots and is set to be one of the musical highlights of 2012 and the headline act for the City of Derry Jazz & Big Band Festival.
