Van Morrison - Clyde Auditorium

I have been a Van Morrison fan for as long as I can remember and love almost all of his work.

I have seen him in concert more times than I can remember and so I was thrilled to get a pre-sale link to his upcoming Glasgow gig on 24th October. Unfortunately once you take in to account booking fees the cost per ticket is about £85 (£75 face value).

I have paid this much before (Leonard Cohen). But I knew then I was going to get a least 2 hours from a performer who wanted to treat his audience to a great (as it turned out fantastic show).

For Van I might get 40 - 70 sullen minutes. It's just too much to pay, I cannot really afford it,  and sadly wont be going.

  1. It is expensive, but you will get 90 minutes, and that will be all music, no stories or stage patter.
    And he's 65 now. How many more chances will you get?
