Limited number of Listening Only tickets are now available at £30!

Due to the positions of the artists on stage, we have a limited number of Listening Only wing seats at the sides of the Big Top stage for Van Morrison. Book yours today.

One of the most unique and celebrated musicians of a generation, OBE and six-time Grammy Award-winner Van Morrison is known for his characteristic blend of R&B and soul and powerful lyrics. With hits like Moondance, Gloria and Brown Eyed Girl in his back catalogue, he received a knighthood in 2016 and is bringing his brand new album Versatile to the Big Top this May.

Across Versatile‘s sixteen tracks, Van Morrison interprets some of the very building blocks of modern music in his own utterly unique style.

As well as songs originally made famous by the likes of Chet Baker, Frank Sinatra, the Righteous Brothers, Tony Bennett and Nat King Cole, Versatile features four stunning new Van compositions including Broken Record, a timeless piece of late-night swing, plus new Versatile arrangements of catalogue gems I Forgot That Love Existed, Start All Over Again and Only A Dream.

Recording songs like these – especially the standards – gave me the chance to stretch out vocally and get back to the music that originally inspired me to sing – jazz!
