Van Morrison at the United Palace Theater in Manhattan on October 13. Beautiful old art deco theater recently restored. Great sound. Van did a fantastic show. Great singing. Had a great band. Really played bandleader. Van played his sax and harmonica on various songs.
Thing about Van is, he doesn't just trot out the hits. If you're going to see him, it's best if you're up on his last few albums. A recent favorite is Magic Time, a terrific album start to finish, that I think came out in 2003.
Opener was Bobby "Blue" Bland.
