For live performances, Van Morrison is the King of Mumble.
Worst concert I've ever been to. Opened with Wild Night which was great. That was the last song anybody recognized, and he sang with his back to the audience the entire show. Found out afterward that he is prone to do this. Would've been nice to know in advance - I could've saved some major coin.
And his shows typically start at 7 pm, with no opening act. And he starts EXACTLY at 7. And his shows are less than 90 minutes.
The last time he played in Toronto there was a big notice in all the ads for the show and on the tickets in 36 point extra bold type: SHOW STARTS AT 7 PM PRECISELY WITH NO OPENING ACT. And people were still arriving at 8pm as the concert was nearing its end.
