Happy 70th Birthday Van Morrison – Van Sings The Hits

Advertisement

Northern Irish singer Van Morrison was born on this date in 1945 making today his 70th birthday. “Van The Man” rose to fame as leader of R&B act Them and then embarked on a hugely successful solo career. The prolific Morrison has covered much musical ground over the past 50 years from the soul and R&B hits that first put him on the map to Celtic and jazz-oriented compositions of more recent years.

With such a huge repertoire to draw from it isn’t often that Van sings his hits. We’ve compiled outstanding footage featuring live performances of 10 of his most beloved songs. Take a look:
