About Van Morrison
The former lead vocalist of ‘60s group Them Van Morrison plays a combination of rock and wide-eyed soul. He has been credited for inventing ‘Celtic Soul’ and has built an equal reputation for being one of the finest song smiths of our time and for his infamous, eccentric and distinctive behaviour.
Van Morrison – or Van The Man as his fans often refer to him – started his career playing in various show bands in his hometown of Belfast in Northern Ireland. By the mid-1960s Van Morrison formed the garage-rock group Them. The group were part of the so-called British Invasion of bands, such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Animals.
Them’s legacy includes the 1964 single Gloria, which became a classic and has been covered by legends ranging from The Doors and Jimi Hendrix to Patti Smith and U2.
After leaving Them, Van Morrison steadily established himself as successful solo performer and critically-acclaimed recording artist. His first forays as a solo artist were a string of pop-orientated singles such as Brown Eyed Girl. Van Morrison quickly progressed from the '45' pop-format to a more matured and respected songwriter with releases including Astral Weeks and Moondance.
Van Morrison’s excellent back catalogue has earned him several awards, including no less than six Grammy Awards and the introduction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Check out the forthcoming Van Morrison tour dates and secure your Van Morrison tickets below.
