Van Morrison – at the Beacon Theatre 11/26/13

2013-11-26 20.53.50 HDR

As good a show as I have ever seen Van perform.  I am very glad I didn’t waste my money on tickets for the awful Madison Square Garden – the Beacon Theatre (where I saw him do Astral Weeks live) is a great venue.  Sound was fantastic, the band was great, and he appeared to have a good time – although in Chuck Berry fashion he was off stage by 9:59 with no encore.

Set List:

  • Celtic Swing (with Van playing sax) (Inarticulate Speech of the Heart)
  • Ballerina (Astral Weeks)
  • The Way Young Lovers do (Astral Weeks)
  • Moondance (Moondance)
  • Tupelo Honey (Tupelo Honey)
  • Why Must I Always Explain? (Hymns to the Silence)
  • Centrepiece (How Long has this Been Going on?) (with Jon Hendricks, Aria Hendricks & Kevin Burke)
  • Whenever God Shines his light (Avalon Sunset)
  • That Old Black Magic (Days Like This)
  • Sometimes We Cry (The Healing Game)
  • (Come See Me) Early in the Morning (80 – BB King and Friends)
  • In the Midnight (Back on Top)
  • I Can’t Stop Loving You (Hymns to the Silence)
  • Glad Tiding (Moondance)
  • Sack O’ Woe (with Jon Hendricks, Aria Hendricks & Kevin Burke)
  • In the Garden (No Guru, No Method, No Teacher)
