Van Morrison Concert Weekend: Live in Bellfast (1979)

The Hunt For New Music:   One of a pair of live concerts Van performed in Ireland in 1979, this one in Bellfast,  contains one of the all-time great renditions of  his first really big hit, “Gloria”. 
Van, seen here performing with his really tight band, is in front of a very sharp crowd that gets it. At the end of the clip, which is 13:08, you’ll get a textbook introduction in how to end a signature tune.
Special thanks to PeterMadison and PedroHernandez for the upload to YouTube. The clip is 13.08 seconds in length.
