Van Morrison returns to the iconic Ulster Hall after over a decade for an evening of rhythm & blues.

Join Van and his full band for an unforgettable evening of rhythm & blues in the iconic surroundings of Belfast’s historic Ulster Hall, a venue which has been the pulse of the City’s live entertainment scene for over 150 years.

These will be the first concerts held at the venue since March of 2020. 

Julia Corkey, Chief Executive ICC Belfast | Waterfront Hall | Ulster Hall said: 

“We are delighted that Van Morrison will take to the iconic Ulster Hall stage this summer. Visitor and staff safety is our number one priority. The team is finalising plans to welcome live audiences back and we are confidently planning for what promises to be a great schedule of concerts. We will continue to work with the relevant authorities to ensure that live music fans have a safe and enjoyable experience that is fully compliant with any public health requirements.”

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 15 and singing, playing guitar and sax in several bands before forming Them in 1964. The band enjoyed chart success with instant hits such as the much covered ‘Gloria’ and ‘Here Comes The Night’.

Since striking out on his own in 1967 with the release of Blowin’ Your Mind!, Morrison’s music has continued to span genres including R&B, Jazz, Blues, Gospel, Folk and Soul. Van’s unrivalled song writing and musicality continues to evolve with the creation of new material and reinterpretation of older classics.

2021 has seen the release of Van’s 42nd studio album Latest Record Project Vol. 1, a 28 track double album delving into his ongoing love of blues, R&B, jazz and soul. The album is out now and available here.

Limited tickets for Van Morrison, Live at The Ulster Hall go on-sale Friday May 28th at 10am from www.ulsterhall.co.uk
