Guess Who's Coming to the Montreal Jazz Festival

Opening act: Jimmie Vaughan

Legend… icon… voice of his generation – and beyond. He is one of those rare artists for whom conventional accolades will not suffice. Almost 50 years into a career, with a higher profile than he’s had in decades, the man, the writing and the voice are timeless… and timely. Bob Dylan’s latest, Modern Times, went to #1. A habitual Nobel Prize nominee for literature, he is studied in university curricula and from the orchestra seats at his concerts. Here is an unforeseen opportunity to share an evening with the man whose vision changed the face and voice of American music!

Van Morrison

Brown-Eyed Girl, T.B. Sheets, And It Stoned Me, Moondance, Into the Mystic, Domino, Tupelo Honey, Have I Told You Lately… is there a pop fan who hasn't soared along to the elemental songs and singular voice of the Belfast Cowboy? Van Morrison stands among the true giants of pop music, a visionary, fiercely independent singer-songwriter who has blazed his own path through no fewer than 35 albums — some of the recent ones on the Verve or Blue Note labels. A true innovator, a prolific song-poet who journeys through soul, R&B, blues, rock and folk, Morrison has indelibly marked the generations of artists who've followed. A rare appearance from a legend who isn't done surprising us with his talent and vision.

Bad news is that they are all sold out.
