Van Morrison

About

28 October 2019
Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall
Ticket Prices: £47.50 - £77.50

Born in 1945 Van heard his Shipyard worker father's collection of blues, country and gospel early in life. Feeding off musical greats such as Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, Muddy Waters, Mahalia Jackson and Leadbelly he was a travelling musician at 13 and singing, playing guitar and sax, in several bands, before forming 'Them' in 1964. Throughout the 80s, he was steering his own course on albums such as No Guru, No Method, No Teacher he claimed Celtic roots with The Chieftains on Irish Heartbeat.

Teaming with Georgie Fame brought new impetus to his live show while Avalon Sunset saw him back in the album and single charts by the decades end. Van Morrison continued to advance on his status as a game- changing artist through the 90s and into the 21st century. Awards and accolades – a knighthood, a Brit, an OBE, an Ivor Novello, 6 Grammys, entry into The Rock n Roll Hall of Fame and the French Ordres Des Artes Et Des Lettres – attested to the international reach of Van's musical art. Yet there was never any suggestion that Morrison, one of the most prolific recording artists and hardest working live performers of his era, would ever rest on his laurels.
