The Millennium Forum has announced that a second show has been added on Wednesday, 2nd May 2012 for the legendary Van Morrison to appear at the city centre venue. The iconic artist was already scheduled to perform on Thursday 3rd May as part of the City of Derry Jazz & Big Band Festival but a second date was added due to demand for tickets.
Martin Bradley, chairperson of the Derry Theatre Trust, said: “We are very pleased at the number of tickets that have already sold for this global artist. A high percentage of tickets have been sold outside of Ireland to people from as far afield as Scandinavia. The attraction of a truly international audience to this event is heartening as it serves as a pre-curser for acts which are likely to come to the city during 2013 when Derry holds the title of UK City Of Culture.”
The Mayor, Alderman Maurice Devenney has welcomed news that Van Morrison is to headline the 2012 City of Derry Jazz and Big Band Festival. “This year’s festival is going to bigger and better than ever before and confirmation that Van Morrison is to be performing at the Millennium Forum as part of the festival is fantastic news for music lovers across the city and wider region”.
