The final NYC gig at the Beacon tonight was the butter cream icing on the Astral Weeks cake. Van adorned the music with a palpable sense of joy, and his voice was as clear and pure and true as it has been all week.
There was a sense of euphoria on the stage and in the audience as Morrison performed highly emotional versions of Northern Muse Solid Ground, Game, Slipstream, Caravan, and And the Healing has Begun. Healing was the final song of the first set, and it built to a thrilling release.
Other first set songs included Wild Night, Moondance, St. James, I Can't Stop Loving, BEG, and Comfortably Numb.
The Astral Weeks songs were not extended as far as in past shows, but they still shone with great clarity and purpose and bursts of brilliance. Van bathed much of the music in pure vocal beauty tonight, filling the show with a rush of lyrical and lovely moments. The band was completely relaxed, and Jay Berliner made jaw dropping guitar runs filled with exquisite delicate feeling.
Van finished up with a fabulous Common One that built to a ferocious gospel chorus with the souls in wonder flying way up in the clouds.
The audience went home exhilarated and satisfied with another ripping Mystic Eyes into Gloria.
and now it's time for slumber.
There is much more to say about these gigs. I am sure there are some great overviews still to be written. Looking forward to them.
It was great to see so many jubilant faces of fans and friends.
