The ‘Astral Weeks’ singer will also head out on a UK tour later this year as he prepares for another residency at Las Vegas’ The Colosseum.

The ‘Baby Please Don’t Go’ singer-songwriter will hit the road in October, performing in Bournemouth, Cardiff, Oxford, and Nottingham with a stop at Brighton in early December. He’ll then pick things up on December 31 with three consecutive nights at Belfast’s Stormont Hotel.

The new dates will follow Morrison’s two London shows at the Roundhouse as part of Inversions Festival.

Back in 2015, Morrison was knighted by the Queen in her birthday honours.

“Throughout my career I have always preferred to let my music speak for me, and it is a huge honour to now have that body of work recognised in this way,” said Morrison. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the fans who have supported me on my musical journey.”
