Morrison is one of the most awarded solo acts in music. Phil Hewett of Brighton & Hove Independent summed up his achievements well: “Morrison has under his belt a vast accolade of awards: a knighthood, a Brit, an OBE, an Ivor Novello, six Grammys, honorary doctorates from Queen’s University Belfast and the University of Ulster, 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.”
Quite recently, he performed at Belfast’s Botanic Gardens. The crowd was massive, and the tickets were completely sold out. He performed well-loved songs like “Have I Told You Lately,” “Brown Eyed Girl,” “Gloria,” “Moondance,” and “Star of the County Down.”
Van Morrison is a legend, and it would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness one of his gigs. His versatility and stage presence will leave you in absolute awe.
