Northern Ireland music legend Sir Van Morrison returns to the Belfast Waterfront in December for one night only.

The multi award-winning singer, composer and performer will be showcasing songs from his brand new studio album Keep Me Singing, as well as dipping into some of his greatest and best known hits from undoubtedly one of the most revered back catalogues in music history.

Keep Me Singing is Van Morrison’s 36th studio album to date and consists of 13 tracks - 12 original songs written and performed by Morrison, as well as a cover of the blues standard Share Your Love With Me - written by Alfred Baggs and Don Robey and previously recorded by artists such as Aretha Franklin and Kenny Rogers.

For the track Every Time I See A River, Morrison has collaborated with acclaimed lyricist Don Black.

The special performance on Sunday 18 December by one of music’s most inspirational artists will take place in the very intimate surroundings of the Belfast Waterfront just a week before Christmas.

Tickets go on sale this Friday 23 September at 9am and can be purchased in person at the Ulster Hall box office or Waterfront website, or at Ticketmaster outlets and online.
