Van Morrison at the Hollywood Bowl

 

He’s 76, but he still sings as well as anyone. Great show, great band.

I tried to reconstruct the set here as a playlist. He did “In the Afternoon,” “Help Me,” “Raincheck,” “Burning Ground” and “Ancient Highway” as a medley, not one right after the other, but blended together as a long — what’s the right word? — let’s say a long reverie. There may have been snippets of a couple other things in there as well . . . something about Big Joe Turner and sittin’ pretty.

He did more of a standard version of “Help Me” as an encore, then “Gloria” as a second encore.
