Riding a wave of attention given to him in recent months due to his series of outspoken “anti-lockdown” songs and similarly feisty double-album Latest Record Project: Volume 1, Van Morrison has detailed a string of U.S. tour dates for the fall.

28 – Napa, CA – Oxbow RiverStage
30 – Berkeley, CA – The Greek Theatre at UC Berkeley

OCTOBER
2 – Los Angeles, CA – Hollywood Bowl
3 – Santa Barbara, CA – Santa Barbara Bowl
5 – San Diego, CA – Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre

FEBRUARY 2022
12 – Hollywood, FL – Hard Rock
14 – Clearwater, FL – Ruth Eckard Hall
15 – Clearwater, FL – Ruth Eckard Hall
18 – Las Vegas, NV – The Coliseum at Caesar’s Palace
19 – Las Vegas, NV – The Coliseum at Caesar’s Palace
20 – Las Vegas, NV – The Coliseum at Caesar’s Palace

Regarding Van Morrison’s new album, this was included in our story on release day:

Most “legacy acts” run into hurdles achieving notoriety with late-era releases, but Van definitely succeeded — the promotional campaign for this album has been a nonstop headline factory, stemming back to his run of “anti-lockdown” songs that came out in 2020, strongly-worded reactions of disdain to restrictions mandated by the government to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The announcement of this Record Project album was also noteworthy for song titles such as the ones above, which demonstrate with no obfuscation that Van Morrison Will Say What He Wants, and damn the consequences. That’s his right, after all, but it definitely won’t generate unanimous praise from all corners or demographics, and that’s obviously by design.

    This self-absorbed p—k can go f— himself. Reading his whines about missing live performance and his freedom while countless millions died and suffered — many alone while attached to a machine — made me wonder if, perhaps, he was behind in his payments for his castles. For decades, Mr. Moody himself has overcharged his fans (I paid more than I should have on a few occasions) and left audiences hoping Van would be in a good enough mood to give listeners a decent show — and perhaps not spend the evening with his back to the fans.

    This jerk will NEVER get another dime of money, nor will Eric Clapton. While I am sorry to hear he suffered as a result of his vaccination, perhaps he could have done so quietly and not fed the propaganda machine that will keep the coronavirus mutating for decades by preventing widespread vaccinations. I wonder if EC ever thinks deeply about the possibility that the physical toll of his many, many years of substance abuse may have contributed to his ailments, and perhaps his reaction to the vaccine.

    Morrison is to be applauded not vilified. One of the last few , who have not succumbed to the mainstream ‘ love fest ‘ accorded many . He is after all, a working musician , who until recently has been able to ‘ do his job ‘. In person can be augmented with ‘ virtual ‘ . But should never replace it. The UKs mismanagement of the ‘ plandemic ‘ is criminal. Not much better here in Canada. Petty politicians and pedantic health care ‘ experts ‘ didnt waste anytime cashing in once Project Fear became a success . Disgusting . The West is being run by the multi national Corporations and we are all the poorer for it.

    I’m surprised Van the Pedantic Autograph Sham is not touring with that other tout Clapton. Sad Old Men Tour.
