Van Morrison’s Lit Up Inside coming to the Lyric


After receiving rave reviews in London and Dublin , Van Morrison brings his Lit Up Inside Show back home to Belfast for a unique once off show on January 5th 2015.

The first part of the evening will feature Van being interviewed by Ian Rankin, and then they will be joined on stage by renowned literary figures including authors Michael Longley and Eamonn Hughes in celebration of the music and words collated in a new book ‘Lit Up Inside’.

In the second part of the show, Van and his band will perform some of his favourite songs.

‘Lit Up Inside’ is a representative selection of lyrics from about one third of the songs that Van has written over his fifty year career. Plunging deep into the world Van has created, the lyrics are a journey through the back streets and mystic avenues, memories of childhood wonder and of adult work, the chime of church bells and the playing of the radio, the generous naming of other artists and the joy of solitude, love and sharp dealing, consolation and grace.

This show is a once off for Belfast and will give fans of Van Morrison a rare opportunity to hear him discuss his work in detail, and hear his favourite songs up close and personal.
