In support of his upcoming ‘Roll With The Punches’ album (see our news archive), SIR VAN MORRISON has announced a series of live dates. His official web site will furnish full details.

However, if you want to catch the man up close and personal, he’s also announced two very intimate shows at Belfast’s Europa Hotel. In an honest effort to boost tourism to his native Northern Ireland Morrison regularly plays at some of the country’s hotels. There, he says, he can replicate the feelings he enjoyed when he was starting out playing small jazz and soul clubs.

The Europa Hotel shows take place on December 4th and 5th and follow the two recent hotel shows he played at County Down’s famed Slieve Donard Hotel where the small audience were treated to a selection of Morrison classics and songs from ‘Roll With The Punches’.
