Morrison cheerily and painstakingly introduced almost every song. Better still, the man who
has spent recent years bludgeoning his back catalogue into bluesy pub rock has rediscovered
what made him great. Backed by a super-subtle, super-restrained four-piece band and referencing
Samuel Beckett, Byron and Allen Ginsberg, Morrison showcased his almost other-worldly ability
to paint word pictures.

The lengthy, languid and impossibly beautiful On Hyndford Street ended the evening with Morrison
singing off-stage and, amazingly, he even inserted a genuinely funny new line into Coney Island.
As an artist and as a performer, Van Morrison is re-born. About time too.

One thought on “Van Morrison – London, England (11/17/14)

  1. This is an excellent show, just look at the song list and see this performance is rich with some of his most intimate works that he does not often perform. Van talks more in this performance, and I can hear that he is at peace and really relaxed and comfortable with the small intimate crowd. I wonder when was the last time Van performed a concert with NO COVER tunes? He is performing his own songs like they are the gems they are, staying true to their essence with this small ensemble rather than trying to turn his repertoire into big band jazz. And what a great rendering of Hyndford Street. Thanks Mat!
