Van Morrison Performs to a Sold Out Crowd at The Joint
Van Morrison performed at The Joint in The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino to a SOLD OUT crowd on September 25, 2009 (Photo: © Erik Kabik/ RETNA/ www.erikkabik.com).  Our thanks to Las Vegas photographer Erik Kabik for this review and photos.

Morrison, wearing his iconic black Fedora and dark sunglasses, performed some of his greatest tunes and demonstrated his powerful and dynamic vocal prowess as the audience hung on every note.  At times you could hear a pin drop in the Joint as he skatted and whispered out some of his vocals and then slowly and soulfully built them up into soaring powerful deliveries that got the crowd on its feet and into full roaring applause and cheers.

The sold out crowd was fully engaged with Morrison throughout. He was in full command of the stage, his large backing band and the gold microphone and gold microphone stand embellished with the initials VM. Morrison also played piano, guitar, saxophone and harmonica throughout the show.

Highlights included the tunes In The Garden, Moondance ( a jazzy version reminicent of classic Miles Davis and Art Blakey tunes), Gloria, And The Healing Has Begun, That’s Life and Have I Told You Lately?
