Van Morrison is a living legend and regular guest at the North Sea Jazz Festival. Bob Dylan once described him as an example for the music world. Last year, the now 71-year-old artist released the highly acclaimed album Keep Me Singing on which he returns to the sound of successful albums like Avalon Sunset and Days Like This. In 2015, he had a hit in the US with the album Duets: Re-working The Catalogue. Last year, Morrison had this to say in an interview with a Dutch newspaper: "I'll keep writing songs until my last breath. It's the only thing I'm good at. I'm still fit and sharp so right now I'm not thinking for a second about stopping." Morrison live on stage is guaranteed to be a fantastic show during which he can draw on an unbelievable body of work that remains timeless like Astral Weeks, Tupelo Honey and Veedon Fleece.
