"Where, when and what did Van Morrison play?"
Within the chapter VAN MORRISON - LIVE - THE PERFORMANCES you will find information for
more than 3,400 performances
more than 2,000 setlists including venues, musicians and song duration
As many of you already know, Van Morrison is taping each and every of his performances since the early 70s.
The information within these pages derive from fan recordings and may differ from Mr. Morrison's.
A performance is defined as follows:
one public appearance on a given day
the first public appearance on a given day, when two shows are played
the last public appearance on a given day, when two shows are played
one public appearance on a given day with restricted public access
rehearsal done for a public appearance; as there are rehearsal before every show (and Van Morrison doesn't attend all of them) only the fan recorded ones are listed
one public appearance on a given day intended for broadcasting
known studio appearance; there are many more as Van Morrison is always working, but yet unknown to me
appearing as guest of another artist
these performances were advertised but did not happen for various reasons
Meaning of the symbols

The setlist is adjusted to the tracklist of a known recording. That means, that the listed medleys depend on the track markers. A medley is defined by it's starting song.
Always either the latest available rework by known specialists, or the best available source (if different ones exist) is used.
Always the title of the first known official recording (if available) is used.
