Astral Weeks Live: A Fan’s Notes

Now available!

In November 2008, singer Van Morrison launched the year of Astral Weeks Live, performing the songs from his critically acclaimed 1968 album Astral Weeks. The year began with two shows at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on November 7 and 8, 2008, and ended 12 months later at the MGM Grand in Connecticut. Twenty-three shows in all, the fans were treated to a musical experience of a lifetime.

This is the story of that year, from the fans’ perspective. Follow one fan’s road trip that takes her to Los Angeles, New York and places in between, on an unprecedented and unparalleled listening journey. Culled from her concert reviews, blog posts, and discussions with the fans, the book describes the year of Astral Weeks Live through her journal entries and notes from the road. And much more, including essays on the eight songs that make up Astral Weeks.
