Filmed at the BBC Radio Theatre, Sir Van Morrison performs an intimate In Concert show. The Belfast born Van the Man performs a selection of tracks, old and new, from his iconic back catalogue through to Keep Me Singing.

This intimate show is an up close and personal performance by the Grammy award winning Celtic soul troubadour who is arguably one of the most influential songwriters and performers in the history of popular music.

WHOA! - I just watched and listened to the "bonus concert", Up On Cyprus Avenue. This bonus is better than the concert recorded at the BBC Radio Theater. The concert at the BBC Radio Theater, while great, is in a controlled environment. The concert "Up On Cyprus Avenue", near Van's home town, is the real deal. It is like watching Van at a local festival.
Of course, as expected, the musicians and back up singer are at the top of their game. WOW
I also need to mention, I ordered this disc on a Saturday and received on Sunday - how cool is that?
Other reviewers have complained that Van isn't chatty and leaves the stage right away at the end of the first concert. Good grief, Van is a cantankerous fellow who's never been into chatting between songs, not even when he was young. Others have said his voice isn't strong. It doesn't have the bite it did when he was a young man, but it has more than enough soul to make up for it.
Van fans will be happy to have another video to catch Van the Man in action. Enjoy!
I can only hope that his past concerts will be upgraded to BD if only for higher quality sound.
If you like Morrison, even just a little bit, these two shows will satisfy. I've had it two weeks and have already watched it three times. It's a keeper, for sure.
The horn arrangements are wonderful and unlike most aging rock stars he still has it!
Including the attitude although it has softened somewhat!
