Releasing, ‘Born To Be Free’ (September 25th), ‘As I Walked Out’ (October 9th), and ‘No More Lockdown’ (October 23rd), the Northern Irishman with the legendary singer/songwriter CV and body of work, will protest the Covid19 related restrictions of the UK government and concerned preventive steps for the public.

Most know his ‘Brown Eyed Girl’ (which inhabits parties and gatherings of celebration) with songs like ‘Have I Told You Lately’, ‘Someone Like You’ and ‘Crazy Love’, Van Morrison is a musical hero to many in many generations.
Van Morrison’s campaign for performance venues and for full capacity activities, fills his energies and push for the un-locking of the economy. He said that he “feels strongly that lockdown is in danger of killing live music. Without a date for reopening fully in 2020, many venues will shut down for good.”
As of today, there has been nearly 42,000 deaths by Covid19 in Britain, with nearly 400,000 infections. The Boris Johnson administration has started another round of nationwide lockdowns, with no definitive end to the infection crisis, affecting the upcoming fall/winter season from education to normal economic life.
Van Morrison will perform the songs during his upcoming shows at the London Palladium.
