The legendary Van Morrison was here for a concert on Sunday
September 20th, 1998. The concert had been planned to happen
out at Fairways in Paradise, but due to a very small amount of
presold tickets, it was moved to Memorial stadium. I'm not a Van
Morrison fan, what so ever, but my father bought me a ticket, so
I decided I'd go, anyway. Besides for the fact that I don't like
his music, he still put off a good concert. I took an article and
picture from The Telegram's site, so that is what is below...

It was standing room only - sardine-like in places - as Van Morrison wowed a capacity crowd in St. John's Sunday.
The musical giant played in front of 5,500 people at Memorial Stadium, singing such classics as Georgia on My Mind, Real, Real Gone and Have I Told You Lately that I love You.
After Newfoundland singer Kim Stockwood warmed up the hometown crowd with hits from her debut album Bonavista and new tunes from a forthcoming release, it was all Van, all the time for nearly two hours.
