Van Morrison announces two UK dates for September
Date Posted: 22/07/11
Irish crooner Van Morrison will entertain fans booking Birmingham hotels when he plays at the second city later this year.
He will appear at the Birmingham Symphony Hall on Friday September 2nd before travelling across to Merseyside to perform at the Liverpool Empire on Saturday September 3rd.
Born in Belfast, the 65-year-old who is known as Van the Man takes great influence from soul and R&B music, which is heard in hits like Brown Eyed Girl, Domino and Wild Night.
His music also touches on spiritual journeys and Celtic tradition, with this being witnessed on Astral Weeks, widely tipped as one of the top albums of all time.
Among his other works include Avalon Sunset, Enlightenment, Saint Dominic's Preview and Days Like This.
Backing up his talent, Morrison is also a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, while he has also picked up numerous Grammy Awards for his work.
