Van Morrison Guests With Eric Clapton In Belfast


Guitarist Eric Clapton brought his world tour to the Odyssey Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland last night. Legendary singer Van Morrison made a surprise appearance eight songs into the show to sing Sonny Boy Williamson II's "Help Me." Morrison has been performing the blues tune in his live show for quite some time, though this was the first time "Help Me" appeared in a Clapton set on his current tour.

Clapton and Van The Man's friendship dates back decades as they both appeared at The Band's The Last Waltz finale. More recently, EC came out for Morrison's Astral Weeks shows in London. Among the other tunes performed by Clapton last night were the Derek and the Dominos gem "Got To Get Better In A Little While," Joe Cocker's "High Time We Went" and "It Ain't Easy (To Love Somebody)" from the tour's keyboardist - Paul Carrack.

Watch Van Morrison sing "Help Me" with Eric Clapton.

Here's the full setlist from last night's show.
