Van Morrison 6/15/21

Van Morrison is heading back to the States for a string of shows this fall in support of his latest album, Latest Record Project: Volume 1. Morrison kicks off the fall run on September 25th in Greenwood Village, Colorado at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre and winds things down on October 5th at San Diego’s Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre.

A second six-show leg begins early in the New Year on February 12th, 2022 at Hollywood, Florida’s Hard Rock before closing over three nights — February 18th, 19th, 20th — at Las Vegas’ Coliseum at Caesar’s Palace.

Van Morrison was asked if albums are still relevant to him in the age of digital downloads and streaming: [“They’re still relevant to me, because I’m not a download artist. Download is a very small percentage of what the people want (from) my product. It’s a very small percentage, so, it’s mainly CD’s and some vinyl. I just kind of go back. . . I just listen to the stuff that got me into it in the first place, y’know, the jazz, some blues. There’s nothing new, no.”] SOUNDCUE (:20 OC: . . . nothing new no)
