Van Morrison: 2008 Summer Tour Dates Announced
The incomparable Van Morrison returns to the U.S. and Canada this Summer for a limited tour in support of his acclaimed Lost Highway release Keep It Simple. Following its US release on April 1, Keep It Simple reached the highest-ever US chart position of any Morrison album by debuting at the #10 spot on The Billboard 200.
After a sold-out Spring tour that included stops in Austin, TX, Boston, Nashville and New York City, Morrison returns to our shores for a series of shows that will feature one of the most distinctive voices in all of music, backed by an incredible ensemble of musicians.
Keep It Simple is Morrison’s first album of new material in two years and features Van at his finest. The 12 new songs are rich with emotion, depth and beauty - not to mention the project’s unprecedented focus on the mighty ukelele. Keep It Simple is a testament to the true essence of Morrison’s extraordinary talents and an unparalleled career.
